The ship


The boat offers extra time in Wolf & Darwin:

  • It is one of few vessels that sails to WOLF & DARWIN, THE HOTSPOT for HAMMERHEAD & WHALE SHARKS!
  • It is one of the few boats that gives us 4 full days in Wolf & Darwin - 1 extra day compared to most of the other vessels! So the chance to see whale sharks increases.
  • Offers a comfortable and luxurious adventure in Galapagos!

The 16-passenger ship provides 8 individually controlled air-conditioned rooms located on the main and lower decks; each has a private bathrooms, flat screen television and ocean view.

 

All rooms except rooms 3 & 4 (forward below deck) can be converted to either one queen bed or two twin beds.

The yacht features partially covered sun deck with a jacuzzi and ample seating, salon area with dining, bar and entertainment area.

 

The large dive deck includes a bathroom, large camera table with charging stations, individual storage areas, rinse bins for cameras and another for gear. Diving operations are conducted from two large pangas (tenders), easily boarded from the dive deck.

 

HERE you find more detailed information about the ship.
