Advantages of travelling on a motor sailer

A motor sailboat in Galapagos offers several advantages to travelers. Firstly, a motor sailboat is faster than a traditional sailboat, allowing you to visit more destinations in less time. In addition, a motor sailboat can offer more stability and comfort, as you are not exposed to the rough seas and winds that can sometimes occur in the Galapagos. Another advantage is the ability to sail to areas that are difficult to reach with a traditional sailboat. Motor sailers also have modern amenities such as air conditioning, private bathrooms and comfortable cabins, making your Galapagos experience more enjoyable and comfortable. Finally, a motor sailboat has a small crew, which means you get more personal attention and a more intimate experience. All of these factors combine to make a motor sailboat in the Galapagos a great choice for anyone looking for a unique and exciting adventure.

What to expect from a motor sailboat?

A motor sailboat in the Galapagos Islands can offer you a unique and intimate way to explore this incredible region. The Galapagos Islands are renowned for their abundant wildlife, and a powerboat provides the perfect platform to get up close and personal with the animals and scenery. A motor sailboat allows you to explore the many coves, bays and inlets of the islands that are inaccessible to larger vessels. You can snorkel, kayak and swim in the turquoise waters and hike the volcanic islands to see giant tortoises, iguanas and other exotic wildlife.

You will be able to experience the natural beauty of the islands with a small group of fellow travelers, and the experienced crew will provide you with a comfortable and safe experience. In the evenings, you can relax on deck and watch the stars or dine on delicious local cuisine. A motor sailboat in the Galapagos is an unforgettable way to experience this unique and pristine environment.

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.
