What we love about the Sea Star
Local family run for decades
Fantastic sundeck with 2 pools
Sea Star Suite is simply breathtaking
Perfect blend of luxury and relaxed comfort
Designed and built in Ecuador in 2011, the Sea Star Journey is the perfect blend of contemporary design and luxurious accommodation for your Galápagos cruise. The operators have cleverly designed three different itineraries, each with a different flavor, allowing you to explore different aspects of the Galápagos. You can even combine them to extend your trip and see more of this unique archipelago. Just speak to one of our Galápagos experts to tailor this cruise to your exact requirements.
As you sail between the stunning islands of the archipelago, the Sea Star Journey will provide you with a superb luxury experience. The yacht accommodates a maximum of 16 passengers, ensuring an unrivalled level of personal service and comfort.
There's a choice of suites on board to suit your needs, including twin and double bed accommodations. The twin suites on the upper deck can be connected, making them ideal for families or those travelling in groups.
All Sea Star Journey suites feature independent air conditioning, flat-screen televisions, DVD players, stunning private bathrooms with premium biodegradable toiletries, and panoramic windows that bring the sights of the Galápagos right into your room.
For the ultimate travel experience, consider the Sea Star Suite on the upper deck. This suite has been designed to feel like your very own apartment in the Galápagos. In addition to a king-size bed, the suite features a sumptuous lounge area and the largest panoramic windows on board.
Space to relax
Despite her boutique luxury style, Sea Star Journey is a relaxed yacht. In the cozy dining room, you'll enjoy a range of stunning international and Ecuadorian dishes created by our experienced chef.
A well-stocked bar offers soft drinks, juices, beer, wine, premium spirits and cocktails. Complimentary coffee, tea and bottled water are available 24/7.
Soak up the sun
The beautiful sundeck offers plenty of shade for when the equatorial sun is too strong, as well as ample sunbathing areas for those who want to soak up the rays! There are two Jacuzzi pools, one covered and one in the sun, to suit all tastes. The whole area has been thoughtfully designed to provide a mix of social spaces and areas of privacy.
Sea Star Journey is one of our favourite yachts. A Sea Star cruise offers a superb mix of high-end luxury and a fantastic, friendly and welcoming ambience. The sundeck is amazing – one of the largest in this class of yacht. And it's incredible to have two pools – one for sun lovers and one for those who prefer the shade.
Owned by a local family
What makes this experience even more special is the Tipan Mora family, who have been deeply involved in the Galápagos since 1991. They are dedicated to providing travelers with the best experience possible while supporting conservation efforts. Two key family members, Williams and Mayra, serve as guides and are part of the operations team, providing a personal insight into the unique wonders of the Galápagos.
Every guest on the Sea Star is treated like family, thanks to the Tipan Mora family's extensive experience in customer service and meticulous attention to detail. This ensures memorable experiences both on board and ashore, making your Galápagos adventure truly exceptional.

Food & Drinks on board the Sea Star
The food on our Galápagos cruises is some of the best you will find in South America. Most of the chefs on board are internationally trained and have experience working in the best hotels and restaurants in Ecuador and around the world.
You can expect a first class selection of food including a good variety of fresh fruit and vegetables, locally sourced poultry and fish/seafood, rice and pasta dishes. Most boats will always have some typical Ecuadorian dishes on the menu during your cruise. If you have special dietary requirements, these can usually be accommodated by the chef, provided you give advance notice. Please make sure you inform us of any allergies or dietary requirements at the time of booking. If you leave it until you arrive at the dock, it may not be possible to accommodate your needs.
Most ships serve a variety of options at mealtimes in a relaxed buffet style. At the first-class and luxury end of the market, some ships have more formal dining rooms, where you are served at your table. However, the atmosphere on board our cruises is always relaxed and never stuffy or formal.
At Galapatours we love and respect the pristine ecosystems and fascinating wildlife of the Galápagos Islands. To protect the archipelago, all Galápagos vessels must have sophisticated water filtration systems, modern, efficient engines, and strict maintenance schedules to minimize pollution. In addition, the Galápagos National Park Authority sets exact itineraries that dictate which ships can visit which highlights on which days and times, and limits the number of passengers.
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. You can also do your bit by travelling responsibly and following our eco-guidelines during your stay.
