The Nemo II is a true sailing catamaran owned and operated by a family business who have been sailing the Galápagos waters since 1990. This is a perfect way to see the islands in a vessel purpose-made for stable, fast journeys under sail or engine. Captain Henry is a true character! A former Galápagos fisherman, he's been skipper here for 12 years and he knows the local waters intimately. He also loves snorkelling, so more often than not he joins us when we get in the water! Fabricio the chef has been working for Nemo for 7 years, and he loves to cook seafood the Ecuadorian way - you'll love it. All the meals are served buffet-style, and taken in the outdoor dining area which can actually be enclosed to keep out the wind, but keep the amazing views. A Nemo cruise is quite active, typically you will enjoy 5 or 6 activities per day. We were tired but very happy each and every evening. Finally, what an experience to be on a true sailing catamaran - you will be travelling under sail through the Galápagos Islands and we found it magical.

Sleep in comfort Nemo II has been cleverly designed to allow for larger, more opens cabins than many catamarans of similar type. Her seven cabins include some with double beds and others with twin bunk or double with single bunk. Cabin are decorated with clean, bright finishes and they are well lit making them feel airy and spacious. Each one has individual air conditioning and private en suite bathrooms with modern decor and hot shower and basin.

A social experience Nemo II has excellent social spaces. The catamaran design means central lounge area is large and open, with luxurious sofas and easy chairs and a bright modern design with panoramic windows. Beautiful wood complements the crisp white finishes, and the bar, TV with DVD, and music system mean the lounge is a great place to relax with the other guests.

The dining room is outside, yet enclosed and offers relaxed dining with comfortable chairs and large tables to share the excellent food. The upper deck has sun loungers to lie down on and soak up the equatorial sun, or to gaze up at the stars at night. Between the two bows you can sit or lie on the netting, floating over the ocean and maybe spotting a dolphin or two.

Sail away When moving under sail there’s nowhere better to be that on the upper deck, where the captain’s open wheelhouse means you get a fantastic sailing experience that’s totally different to the motor yachts and this is the reason why Nemo II is such a popular choice.

Nemo II offers a choice of excellent itineraries to help you really explore the Galápagos. Her bilingual naturalist guide will share their in-depth knowledge of the local wildlife and habitats, and you can enjoy snorkeling, kayaking, hiking and more as you cruise around the islands. Northern and southern routes are available, allowing you to pick the islands that you most wish to learn about and discover.

Our comments Nemo II has a great balance between a real, working sailboat and offering accommodation that’s generous and comfortable. Her updated guest bathrooms are some of the best in the class. We love being able to sit right in the open wheelhouse and watch the captain and crew trim the sails as we head between the islands. We like the choice of comprehensive northern or southern itineraries that you get with Nemo II.

Sustainability on board the Nemo II

At Galapatours we love and respect the pristine ecosystems and fascinating wildlife of the Galápagos Islands, and we insist that our cruise partners do too. To protect the archipelago all our cruise vessels must have sophisticated water filtration systems, modern efficient engines, and strict maintenance schedules to minimize pollution.

The Galápagos National Park authority also defines exact cruising routes that dictate which ships can visit highlights at specific times, as well as limiting passenger numbers. These measures ensure that animals and habitats are not disturbed by too many visitors.

But at Galapatours we like to go even further. We voluntarily offset all the CO2 emissions of every cruise we sell - at no cost to you. And you can also play your part by traveling responsibly and following our Eco Guidelines during your stay.

Food & Drinks on board the Nemo 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.
