Advantages of travelling on a motor catamaran

In addition, motor catamarans provide an environmentally friendly means of transport, which is important in an area such as the Galapagos Islands, where the preservation of fragile ecosystems is a priority. With their low fuel consumption and emissions, catamarans are an environmentally responsible way to explore the islands.

What to expect from a motor catamaran?

Motor catamarans in the Galapagos are a popular way to get around for those looking to experience the Galapagos. These luxurious boats offer a smooth and stable ride, making them a great option for those prone to seasickness.

Catamarans have a wider base than traditional boats, which helps reduce the amount of rocking and rolling in rough seas. They are also faster and more manoeuvrable, making it easier for passengers to get from one island to another in a short space of time. The larger size of motor catamarans also provides plenty of space to relax and take in the stunning scenery.

Archipell I Galapagos Cruise

Mid Range Ship

December 2022

Thank you very much for organising my cruise so quickly. I wanted to share the feedback after my experience on the Archipel. I had the most wonderful holiday- everything was just perfect! I will start with the Archipel's crew, as thanks to them, the cruise was so exceptional. They all were just excellent at providing outstanding costumer service, showing what hospitality stands for. Whole crew was very friendly, helpful, and looked after us so well. Our guide Carlos, was a star from the very beginning. He collected us all at the airport and announced that during our stay, we will be part of Galapagos, not tourists. Calling us 'family', he really made us feel as we were welcome there. On top of being highly knowledgeable, he speaks fluently English, and has some good sense of humour as well. Carlos was very professional, and communicated frequently and honestly with us. We always knew what to bring and what to wear for activities. He takes pride in his work, and surly will be inspiration for many visitors. The atmosphere was so friendly and relaxing, no rushing, no waiting, everyone equally amazed by the beauty of the enchanted islands, and happy that we had such a cool team. The chef made us fabulous meals, and he skillfully managed to deal with special dietary requirements (there was quite a lot of it). Everything was fresh, tasty and I'm currently working out, how to come to terms with not having delicious snack, and fresh juice or hot chocolate, after every activity! Our cabins were cleaned daily, turned down in the evenings, the lounge and common area immaculate at all times. Coffee, tea, biscuits available anytime, as well as cold beer and drinks from the bar. The panga drivers, captain and every single member of the Archipel's crew was amazing. Always with a smile. Archipel had all the facilities I needed. Fortunately we didn't spend much time on the ship, as we were constantly busy with activities. The weather was great as well, which helped. Snorkeling equipment provided was of good quality, and I quickly switched my new, annoyingly foggy mask, for the one provided. Luckily Carlos sorted my mask problem out with the flame trick. I spotted a shark immediately when I put head under the water! Having the kayaks to use was also great! The itinerary for 4 days was packed with highlights of the islands. I can't believe, how many species we saw in only four days! I loved that cruise and I return to Galapagos next year for longer.
