The 16-guest Galapagos Horizon (formerly known as Camila) is the first trimaran built in Ecuador and the only trimaran operating in the Galapagos Islands. Her three hulls mean faster navigation, saving time between islands and landing sites; increased sustainability due to reduced fuel consumption; greater stability than a double hull; and no internal hull vibration. Aboard the Galapagos Horizon, guests are treated to private balconies, a qualified cruise manager and a 16:10 guest-to-crew member ratio. As a newer vessel in the Galapagos Islands, the M/T Galapagos Horizon boutique small ship is ready to elevate the standard of luxury Galapagos cruising.
