Samba Galapagos Cruise

A Galapagos Cruise aboard the Samba

- Lots and lots of land and sea excursions, perfect for active adventurers;
- Family-owned for over 30 years;
- Environmentally responsible vessel;
- Local crew, local guides, local produce;
- Only 14 guests on board.

This family-owned Dutch-built motor sailer offers, in our opinion, the best excursion and activities itinerary in the Galapagos. If you are into snorkelling, book a trip on the Samba because you'll get to jump into the sea at least 3 times every day. Captain Jose is in charge, and chef Ángel will keep you very well fed.
