This exciting new luxury yacht has been completely custom-designed for sailing around Galapagos. Her twin-hull catamaran configuration will provide guests with an extremely stable cruising experience giving guests a far smoother ride that older single-hull boats can hope to offer.
As well as increased stability, fuel efficiency and cruising speed, the twin hulls mean guests can enjoy more space, including larger, more comfortable social areas, luxurious suites, and opulent premium suites.
Outdoor space is also increased, including the huge, semi-shaded sky deck, a delightful alfresco dining area, and a supremely comfortable saloon and bar.
As a brand new ship, the Galapagos Elite will of course feature state-of-the-art power plant, navigation and safety equipment, making her the safest and most reliable ship in the Galapagos cruise fleet.
A standout feature for us is the panoramic windows that are a feature of every suite. "Windows" doesn't really do them justice as they are actually glass walls. This will provide a unique experience as you wake each morning to a new view that will bring the outside in to your suite.
The food and drink offering onboard Elite is being designed to make meals a real experience. Your chefs will prepare three stunning meals every day. Breakfast and most lunches will be served in a relaxed buffet style. In the evenings, a more elegant dining experience is available with your meal served to you in the stunning alfresco dining area on the sky deck. Your chefs will only use the freshest local produce and will cater for any special dietary requirements. They are also delighted to offer child-friendly portions and taste options, giving the whole family chance to experience this once-in-a-lifetime Galapagos cruise option.
Despite her stunning luxury, most guests will be keen to experience the unique animals and habitats of the Galapagos islands themselves. The Elite naturalist itineraries have been designed to give you the most exciting encounters, with visits to the best visitor sites the Galapagos islands and seas have to offer. Just a few highlights include: hiking the stark, volcanic fields of Fernandina Island; marvel at the Albatross nesting sites on Española; snorkel with Galapagos Sea Lions around the so-called "Devil's Crown"; exploring the world-famous "Bird Island" of Genovesa.
During your excursions you can expect to see all of the iconic endemic animals associated with the islands, including giant tortoises, land and marine iguanas, blue-footed boobies, frigate birds, and much, much more. Your dedicated onboard naturalist guides are experts in their field, with intimate knowledge of all the species and where you are most likely to encounter them.
The Galapagos Elite will be operated by a highly-respected operator that has many years' experience serving Galapagos visitors. The owner only hires the best captains, guides, chefs and crews for the vessels they operate. Their philosophy is that the people, not simply the luxury ship, are what will make the trip memorable for their guests, and they are the difference between a good Galapagos cruise and an outstanding one.Click here to read less
