San Jose is one of the larger 16 passenger yachts in Galapagos, and its design leaves ample space for sun and shaded decks with lounge chairs; to read a book, or to feel the sea breeze and dream away with the panoramic views. Even if we are fully booked, it won’t feel crowded. The outside decks are also excellent for wildlife observation, such as whales, dolphins and frigate birds. At the bar on the shaded outside deck you can order an exotic cocktail, or another drink of your choice.
Even your relatively quiet cabin with private bathroom is stretched, and has twin beds (convertible in one double bed if desired; instead of regular berths or bunk beds in yachts of lower classes). We have also placed a small desk with an inspiring sea view (ideal for photographers that want to backup and select their shots in the privacy of their cabin).
We follow original and exclusive routes with flexible duration, starting from 3 nights up to 14 nights cruising. Even our shorter routes visit some of the most impressive and out-of-the-way visitor sites! Our naturalist cruise programs include a wide range of activities as guided hikes, inflatable dinghy-rides, snorkelling, as well as interesting visits to giant tortoise breeding projects, interpretive botanic trails and visitor’s centres.
You will be impressed observing, photographing and filming the incredibly tame and prosperous Galapagos wildlife from different perspectives. You will be closer to nature than ever before!
