Galapagos Sailing Catamarans
Maximum capacity: 12-16 passengers
Advantages of travelling by sailing catamaran
Sailing on a catamaran in the Galapagos has many advantages over other forms of transport. Firstly, catamarans are more stable and comfortable than traditional monohull boats, providing a smoother sailing experience even in rough waters. Secondly, they offer more space and room, with several outdoor areas for lounging, sunbathing and enjoying the scenic views.
Catamarans also tend to have larger cabins and more modern facilities, giving guests a more comfortable and luxurious experience. They also have a shallower draft, which allows them to navigate in shallower waters, allowing for more intimate and up-close encounters with the island's wildlife.
Catamarans are more environmentally friendly, with a smaller carbon footprint, making them the ideal choice for those looking to minimise their impact on the environment. They are quieter and produce less waste, helping to preserve the delicate ecosystem of the Galapagos Islands.
All in all, catamaran sailing in the Galapagos is a unique and unforgettable experience, offering the ultimate blend of comfort, adventure and environmental awareness.

What to expect from a sailing catamaran?
Sailing catamarans are designed for comfort, stability and speed on the water. They typically have two parallel hulls, providing more interior space and stability than monohull sailboats. Catamarans are known for their spacious decks, which offer plenty of room for outdoor activities and relaxation, and often have multiple lounge and dining areas. They also tend to have larger cabins and heads, making them ideal for longer trips and liveaboard cruises.
Catamarans also have a shallower draft, allowing access to shallow waters, and typically perform better in light winds than monohulls. Disadvantages include a higher initial cost, more complex rigging systems and less manoeuvrability in confined spaces. Ultimately, sailing catamarans are a good choice for those who value comfort and stability and are looking for a unique sailing experience.
