Next-Generaation Galapagos Catamaran

Galapagos Sea Lions and Elite Yacht

The Galapagos Elite Luxury Catamaran began operating on June 15th, 2019. When the Elite reached the azure waters of the Galapagos Islands as the newest mega-catamaran in the storied archipelago, it reinvented luxury, class and the entire Galapagos travel experience.

A sleek, twin-hulled vessel that provides its guests with a steady and safe cruise,  the design of the Elite allows for more space per guest on board, including integrated social areas that blend indoor and outdoor designs and experiences. All Suites on the Galapagos Elite luxury catamaran are spacious, comfortable, and well-appointed: the perfect place to relax and recharge after a day spent exploring the islands. Each suite has panoramic windows providing guests with sweeping ocean views, a private outdoor balcony, as well as a frosted glass wall in the restroom of each suite, bathing it in natural light.  All beds are convertible, allowing them to be configured with two twin beds or one king-size bed.

Our professional cuisine specialists aboard the Galapagos Elite prepare three delicious, nutritious meals per day: breakfast and lunch are served buffet-style, with a more elegant sit-down dinner served in the al fresco dining area on the partially covered sky deck. Special dietary needs are never a problem and kids’ meals are available, including kosher food (barters). Guests of all ages enjoy the spacious, semi-covered sky deck, the al fresco dining area, and the cozy bar-salon while aboard the Elite, and its interior passenger lounge features a 180-degree panoramic view from its main deck.

Golden Galapagos Cruises has significant experience creating cruise experiences in the Galapagos, as well as understanding our guests’ needs. Our close-knit team of professionals are well-known in the industry for their perfectionism when it comes to planning and operating luxury cruises. Golden Galapagos makes a point of always hiring the best captains, guides, chefs and crew members for the vessels that we operate, believing that the people, not the ship itself, is what makes the trip memorable for our guests.

The Elite, a private luxury catamaran in the Galapagos, offers enviable itineraries with visits to the best visitor sites the Galapagos islands and Galapagos waters have to offer. Within the archipelago, we have long and short itineraries covering the Western, Central and Eastern islands.

Needless to say, the Galapagos Elite luxury catamaran features state-of-the-art navigation systems and safety equipment; safety and reliability are essential parts of any Galapagos luxury experience.
