The Ship

Detailed ship information

The yacht provides a unique and unforgettable experience, with the best service and diving that you could hope for. The boat has eight cabins with private bathrooms, air conditioning, electricity, (a given since you have A/C!) and all that you may need to make your stay comfortable. The master cabin on the main deck and superior cabins have windows that will allow you to enjoy the beautiful sunrise and sunsets of the Galapagos Islands. The lower cabins have portholes with an ocean view and natural light and let's face it sunsets are better from out on deck. All dives are done from a dive panga, (tender) which offers easy access to all of the best dive locations. A very spacious lounge and dining area with wood surrounds allows comfort and a great area for working with cameras, photography and lectures / workshops. After each dive, guests can relax in the lounge, or outer decks ideal for yoga, simple meditation or wildlife observation. All meals will be a mixture of local and international cuisine and hearty fare for divers. If you are looking for luxury seek elsewhere, we are headed for adventure.
