Suited for environmentally friendly operation in the Galapagos National Park and the Galapagos Marine Reserve, the 48 passenger Yacht La Pinta’s “expedition” experience bonds nature with everything the islands hold for your discovery: intimate contact with the natural world; a vast ocean to navigate, activities like snorkeling, swimming, whale and dolphin watching and full days of wildlife viewing, led by naturalist field experts. In the quiet evenings enjoy being pampered aboard Yacht La Pinta, with dinner followed by naturalist lectures, stargazing on the sky deck, reading a book from the library, E-mailing your loved ones, or enjoying a cocktail in the lounge.
Most Galapagos cruise travelers will require pre and post cruise accommodations in Ecuador, round trip flights, National Park entrance fees & transit cards etc. Choose our Galapagos Cruise Package or work with our experts on a Custom Galapagos Tour. See trip notes for more details.
