Luxury Cruise

Kayaking galapagos

Imagine a magical world of soaring frigate birds, lumbering tortoises, frolicking sea lions, and sleek sharks. Imagine cruising through cerulean waters on a luxurious, intimate yacht with your significant other, family, or friends. Picture a deluxe cabin, spacious and inviting as warm sea breezes blow in gently from the balcony. The staff is courteous and professional, the naturalist guide is knowledgeable and friendly, and the chef somehow sends one masterpiece after another out of the kitchen. This is your dream. This is the Endemic luxury cruise inthe Galapagos.

The Endemic is not only one of the newest next-generation catamarans in the Enchanted Islands, but also the most luxurious. The outer design is sleek, streamlined, and attractive: the gentle curves of the hull and decks make the Endemic look like part of the unique Galapagos ecosystem.

The Galapagos Cruise Experience aboard the Endemic

Suites on a luxury catamaran like the Galapagos Endemic are typically much larger than cabins on older single-hulled yachts. Professional designers with shipboard experience designed ours for maximum comfort and elegance.

Each cabin has personalized air conditioning controls, a balcony, spacious private bathroom, and either a king-size bed or two twin-size beds. Naturally, each suite also boasts significant closet/drawer space and a writing desk and strongbox.

There’s no question that the engineers and designers who built our luxury catamaran for the Galapagos archipelago left nothing to chance. It is our privilege to provide our guests with the style and comfort of the Endemic, the finest vessel sailing in the Galapagos Islands! Book our luxury Galapagos Endemic cruise for your next vacation today.
