Galapagos Coral Cabins Deck Plan
Coral I and II Galapagos Cruise

Unique amongst the Galápagos fleet, these "twins" were the first to operate in this manner. Other firsts we've discovered - the first boats with an on-board barbecue, and the first with solar-powered jacuzzi! Your captains are Javier and Fabian, and in talking with the crew, we discovered that 95% of them have been working on the Corals for 10 years or more - a real sign of quality and smooth running. The Coral twins have an unrivalled reputation for operating sustainably, and we've found out that their reclamation, recycling and waste processing systems exceed the National Park Requirements.

For an absolutely unique Galápagos experience, join the beautiful twins Coral I and II as you cruise in tandem to discover the hidden wonders of the archipelago. The two yachts do everything together, including their 2016 refurbishment which saw them completely refurbished with the latest energy-saving equipment and stunning uprated furnishings throughout.

Coral I is a modern, first-class mega yacht with 18 double exterior cabins and a maximum of 36 passengers; Coral II is an elegant, classic and charming motor yacht for maximum of 20 passengers. Combined, they provide the intimacy of a small-scale adventure itinerary with the outstanding features of a luxury cruise.

These beautiful twins provide the perfect combination of classic lines and wonderful style. The decor throughout has been carefully planned to give a warm and intimate feel, with natural shades reflecting the colors of the Islands as you sail. Thanks to wonderful panoramic windows throughout, the ocean and nature seem to fill the boats. The communal areas of the salon, dining room and bar have been beautifully finished with hand-crafted wood finishes that take you back to the golden age of maritime travel. Cozy sofas, TV/DVD, stereo and guest library add the perfect finishing touches. Bringing us right up to date, the wonderful jacuzzi tub and the sun and shade decks give you the choice of every outdoor ambiance to relax and socialize in.

The Corals recent refit brought them right up to date, and they now feature new dedicated electrical outlets for 110V appliances compatible with iPod, iPad, iPhone, Android and MP3 players. There are three classes of cabin to choose from and all have stylish new furniture and full air conditioning. Other cabin amenities include flat screen TV, music system, personal safe and internal phone. Everyone enjoys an elegant private bathroom with cold and hot water, hair dryer, electric mirror and other amenities. Some cabins can also connect, making them ideal for families or group traveling together.

No luxury experience would be complete without superb refreshment. The elegant bar on board is well stocked with local beers, the finest South American wines and premium spirits and a selection of cocktails. Highly trained chefs prepare a diverse and exciting range of local and international fine dining served in a more relaxed buffet style. An outdoor barbecue station on the sundeck provides the opportunity to sample wonderfully fresh grilled produce with an ocean view that is unrivalled.

The unique twin vessels of Coral I & II just ooze with that classic motor yacht charm, and yet they have up to the minute amenities and comfort. We really like the high sundecks with jacuzzi tubs, and the panoramic windows fitted to all the indoor communal spaces make you feel like you’re outside even when you’re sitting in the comfortable, elegant lounge. There’s also something a little bit special about cruising in tandem, and alway seeing your twin boat with you

Food & Drinks on board the Coral I & II

The food on our Galapágos Cruises is among the very best you will find in South America. Most of the on-board chefs are internationally trained and have prior experience working in the best hotels and restaurants in Ecuador and indeed around the world.

You can expect a first-class selection of food, including a good variety of fresh fruits and vegetables, locally sourced poultry and fish/seafood, rice and pasta dishes. Most boats will always include some typical Ecuadorian dishes on the menu during your cruise. If you have specific dietary requirements then these can usually be accommodated by the chef providing you have given advance notice. Please make sure you tell us about any allergies or dietary requirements you have at the time you book with us. If you leave it until you arrive at the dockside, then it may well be impossible to accommodate your needs.

Most boats serve a range of options at meal times in a relaxed buffet-style. At the first class and luxury end of the market, some boats have more formal dining where you will be served at your seat. However the atmosphere is always relaxed on board our cruises, and never stuffy or formal.

Sustainable Tourism

At Galapatours we love and respect the pristine ecosystems and fascinating wildlife of the Galápagos Islands. To protect the archipelago, all vessels in Galápagos must have sophisticated water filtration systems, modern, efficient engines, and strict maintenance schedules to minimize pollution. Furthermore, The Galápagos National Park authority defines exact cruising routes that dictate which ships can visit which highlights at what day and time, as well as limiting passenger numbers.

Our commitment extends beyond the mandatory environmental standards for cruise vessels in the region: A portion of your trip price now contributes to our Conservation Project. This initiative empowers local communities to protect their territory, engage in reforestation, and prepare for long-term environmental stewardship. This way, your trip contributes to environmental protection and truly shows how travel can be a force for good! You can also play your part by traveling responsibly and following our Eco Guidelines during your stay.

Quel voyage incroyable ! Nous devions initialement voyager en novembre 2020, mais une petite pandémie mondiale nous a obligés à reporter notre voyage. Les opérateurs ont été brillants dans la manière dont ils ont géré cette situation. Nous avons gardé le deopsit avec eux et n'avons eu aucun problème pour réserver à nouveau une fois que nous avons été en mesure de voyager à nouveau, soit plus de 2 ans plus tard. Le voyage en lui-même était génial. Nous avions réservé une croisière de 15 jours. Après quelques jours, nous craignions que ce soit trop long, mais chaque étape a quelque chose de différent et, en fin de compte, c'était vraiment la bonne décision pour ce qui est probablement une destination unique dans une vie. Le bateau était super et l'équipage était incroyable. L'équilibre parfait entre l'accueil et l'amabilité, tout en offrant un service professionnel de qualité. La nourriture était exceptionnelle, même pour notre régime végétalien. Les îles elles-mêmes et les expériences extraordinaires avec la faune ont été inoubliables, à la fois sur terre et lors des aventures de plongée avec masque et tuba. Les animaux sont tellement confiants qu'on peut les approcher de très près. Je recommanderais toujours d'apporter des jumelles et un appareil photo avec un téléobjectif (plutôt qu'un simple smartphone), mais même avec un téléphone, vous obtiendrez beaucoup de belles photos. Dans l'ensemble, c'est une expérience vraiment inoubliable. Merci à tous !

L'assistance apportée par notre conseillère voyage a été en tous points exemplaire (réactivité, courtoisie, clarté des explications). La croisière fut particulièrement agréable et bien organisée. Les guides et le personnel à bord du bateau étaient très aimables et compétents. La cabine, bien que très petite, était très confortable, propre, bien équipée. Le programme prévu a été scrupuleusement respecté. Nous pouvons seulement regretter deux réveils très (trop) matinaux au cours de la semaine, ainsi qu'une petite incertitude sur le déroulement de la dernière matinée (néanmoins rapidement clarifié). Nous sommes globalement très satisfaits de ce voyage, que nous recommanderons à nos proches.

Amazing trip to the Galapagos Galapatours website is easy to use and very informative. Our point of contact was Thomas who was very helpful. There was a mix-up with our flight to the Galapagos Island when Thomas was informed he took the necessary steps to ensure that the flight was changed. Our cruise was on the Coral II. The boat was great, the cabins were clean, and the bed was very comfortable. Delicious food, great staff and great guides. We loved the visits to the different islands and daily snorkeling and saw different animals/birds/sealife every day. Definitely will recommend Galapatours and this particular ship to our friends.

Spektakuläre Kreuzfahrt mit vielen Überraschungen Es war eine sehr schöne Zeit auf der Coral. Wir waren auf einer 8-Tages Fahrt, ich glaube kürzer wäre für uns nicht in Frage gekommen, man schafft es schließlich nicht jedes Jahr auf diese Inseln. Welches Schiff man von den beiden Corals bekommen, bleibt eine Überraschung. Die Coral I und II sind sowieso zusammen unterwegs. Die Corals haben uns in Ecken gebracht, wo größere Schiffe nicht hinkommen konnten. Die 36 Passagiere wurde bei Ausflügen in zwei Gruppen aufgeteilt. Das Essen wurde im Buffet-Stil serviert. Es war mehr als genug für alle. Am meisten hat uns das BBQ gefallen. Die Besatzung war spitze! Vor allem Alex und Mosquito. Ich fand es großartig, dass durch Lautsprecher angekündigt wurde, wann es wohin gehen wird. An einem tag gab es zwei Wanderungen, dafür empfehle ich gute Schuhe dabei zu haben. Schnorchel trips gab es auch. Man kann an so viel oder so wenig wie man möchte teilnehmen. Jeden Tag erwarteten uns neue Überraschungen. Wir sahen Orcas, Wale, Galapagos Haie, Pinguine, Blaufußtölpel und Echsen (das war nur der Anfang). Wir waren zwei Familien und reisten zusammen auf der Coral.

Perfect boat size, perfect trip I don't even know where to start. The crew of Coral I, made this short cruise of 8 days an unforgettable experience. The food was delicious, the cabins comfortable and the service unparalleled. Most importantly, however, our two guides made this probably the nicest vacation we have had in... ever? Thank you, Benno and Galapatours, for the great customer service and making the reservation process so seemless!

Köln

- Long-established, local Galápagos operators; - Light and airy lounge and communal spaces; - Experienced and friendly crew; The M/V Köln, formerly known as the Tip Top III, is a first class motor yacht. Fully refurbished in 2008 she is delightfully light and spacious. She is owned by one of the oldest local tourist operators in the Galápagos, and has a great reputation for good food, good service and one of the best crews in the Islands. The company has become a leader in the region for winning internationally recognized certifications for its environmental and safety policies. Our best tip... if they are available, choose the lower-deck rooms. As well as being cheaper you'll feel less of the boat rocking - good to know if you are prone to motion sickness. This boat has a really personal touch, and everyone we cruised with was really happy with the service. Captain Washington is a stickler for quality and everything on board is in great condition. Johnny the chef has been on board for 3 years and cooks some delightful seasonal specialities - too many to mention but we'll single out his Cerdo en Salsa de Tamarindo for a mention. Socialize and relax in comfort Köln's communal areas include a bar, dining room, saloon and sun deck. The lounge saloon is on the Main Deck and decorated with light fabrics and rich woods. Here you’ll find a range of board games, DVDs, books and music to enjoy. There’s also a computer for guests to use. The neighbouring dining room serves a delightful mix of Ecuadorian and international cuisine freshly cooked on board every day. The well-stocked bar can provide the perfect refreshment to enjoy before dinner. A beautiful teak-floored sun deck on the upper deck proves to be an ideal place for soaking up the sun, or gazing at the billions of stars that shine in the clear Galápagos night skies. There are 10 cabins on Köln spread across 2 decks. Each cabin is tastefully decorated with bright and airy colors and natural wood finishes, and each features a private bathroom with shower, air conditioning, personal safe, vanity unit and hair dryer. An internal phone system is available for your use. Water Activities There are two kayaks on board for your use as well as snorkeling equipment to use for the whole cruise including masks, snorkels and fins (sizes 3-5 to 11-13). The crew thoughtfully provides a bag for each passenger to store and carry their gear. Wetsuits are available to rent upon request when you book your cruise. The well-trained, friendly and professional crew of 8 always do their best to make your Galápagos Islands visit an unforgettable experience. Each one of them will ensure a safe cruise, as they are well prepared to offer a first-class and personalized service. Our Comment The Köln previously sailed under the name of Tip Top III. Already under the old name its operations were flawless and the ship was well known throughout the Islands for being one of the best run and managed. Köln’s crew and guides always seem to go out of their way to make sure everything is as good as it can be. We like the light and airy sociable lounge layout, and the superb sundeck is one of our favourites for stargazing. Cabins are generous and comfortable and Köln is always a popular booking.

Eco Galaxy II

- Environmentally sensitive luxury; - First class experience; - Generous communal areas; - Finest locally sourced produce a speciality. Responsible luxury Eco Galaxy II is one of the latest generation of super-stable, purpose-built luxury cruise catamarans. However, what sets her apart from many in her class is her absolute commitment to sustainability and environmental protection. Launched in 2015, Eco Galaxy II was designed from the ground-up to set new standards in ecotourism. Boasting the lowest fuel consumption of any equivalent boat cruising the Islands today, Eco Galaxy II’s sustainability goes far beyond fuel efficiency as she also contributes directly to local schools, foundations and projects. First Class accommodation Strictly limited to 16 passengers on board, her 8 staterooms are nothing short of magnificent. Crisp white walls and high-gloss ceiling finishes are tastefully softened by fabrics and furnishings in neutral shades, inspired by the habitats you will see through the magnificent panoramic windows. Beautiful furniture and wildlife-inspired artworks are brought to life by the light that spills into the spaces. All rooms feature 110V and 220V outlets for your convenience. Charming en suite bathrooms feature powerful hot water showers, and are stocked with luxury biodegradable shampoos, body washes and soaps. All faucets on board are of water-saving design. Hair dryers are provided for your convenience. Stunning ambiance Communal spaces throughout the boat are just as stunning as the staterooms. Outside, the ample sundeck offers elegant sofas in the shade, or modern recliners for worshipping the sun. Inside, effortlessly stylish modern finishes reflect light everywhere, whilst sumptuous fabrics and furnishings soften the crisp lines with pastel shades reflecting colors of land, sea and sky. The overall effect is one of cool, calm, luxurious comfort. Amenities include a wonderfully stocked bar, TV and DVD system, guest library, and more of those wonderful panoramic windows. The dining room next door is no less delightful, and with only 16 guests dinners take on a welcoming and relaxed “family” feel - a chance to share wonderful food and remarkable experiences with new friends. High cuisine with high ethics A particular feature of Eco Galaxy II’s sustainable ethos is her kitchen’s insistence on only using the finest locally sourced ingredients, ensuring a direct support for the Island population. This wonderful produce is turned into a mouthwatering array of Ecuadorian and international fine dining experiences, with the freshest seafood and organic fruits and vegetables a speciality Finally, the owners and crew of Eco Galaxy II don’t stop their environmental efforts where you can’t see them - this is a truly ecologically sound operation. The boat reuses almost all of its water: once it has been treated it’s used to wash the decks and hull. All light fittings are energy saving LED throughout. All housekeeping products are biodegradable, and there are no toxic refrigerants used on board. Finally, every 3 months all crew and staff receive refresher training on customer service, conservation of the islands and habitats and awareness of the risks of exotic species invasion. Our Comments Eco Galaxy II is the proof that luxury tourism can be sustainable and ecologically sound. We love the fact that the eco-credentials of Eco Galaxy II are much more than skin deep - and whilst enjoying the fact that we are supporting these endeavours we can’t help but be wowed by the stunning interiors of Eco Galaxy II. Of course style is a matter of personal taste, but we think this might be the most stunning decor in the whole Galápagos...

Letty Galapagos Cruise

Letty

- Twin, purpose-built Galápagos yacht - Refurbished annually - Traditional hand-crafted teak cabins Letty is one of our favorite yachts in the Galápagos fleet, because it was among the first to be custom-designed for cruising the amazing Galápagos Islands. Because Letty features accommodation for a maximum of 20 guests she carries 2 qualified naturalist guides each. This means you will get a much smaller guest to guide ratio than most other ships in the fleet. The operator of Letty refurbishes the yacht every year. This is exceptional, and it means you are always assured of enjoying one of the best-presented yachts in its class. The passenger accommodation is fitted out in the traditional nautical style, with beautiful handcrafted teak fixtures and polished brass fittings. Every cabin features an outside view, and is equipped with either a double bed or twin beds. Each is fully air-conditioned and has a private bathroom with shower. Luxury biodegradable cosmetics are supplied, and additional features includes hairdryer, plenty of closet and drawer storage, and an intercom. Meals are taken in the cozy dining room. You'll be served a sumptuous selection of international and local dishes, cooked using the freshest local ingredients by your highly skilled chef. There's also a lounge and conference area where the naturalist guides will brief you on some of the amazing sites you will be seeing, and you can relax here and watch TV or choose a book from the library while the islands glide past the panoramic windows. Letty features a wonderful sundeck. It's the perfect place to catch some equatorial rays while you sip a cocktail, or to come up at night and watch the spectacle as the stars are revealed in the clear Galápagos skies above. Your bilingual naturalist guides know the islands, the habitats and the wildlife intimately. They will lead you on a variety of amazing expeditions including shore landings, kayaking adventures, snorkeling, beach visits, and more. Snorkel gear, wetsuits, and stand up paddle boards are also available for guests to use free of charge. Our comments Letty is a truly remarkable ship! The owners lavish such care and attention on the ship that she always look as good as new. We love the fact that Letty includes complimentary wetsuits and SUPs. For families with young teenagers this could be the perfect option, and the chefs on board will always provide a kid-friendly menu option if you don't have adventurous eaters.
