The Galapagos Endemic Luxury Yacht Cruise

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 Galapagos Endemic luxury yacht cruise.

It is not only one of the newest catamaran cruisers 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 on the Endemic

Suites on a luxury catamaran like the Galapagos Endemic private yacht cruise are typically much larger than cabins on old-fashioned single-hulled yachts. Professional designers with shipboard experience created ours for maximum comfort and elegance.

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

As you can see, the engineers and designers who built our luxury yacht for Galapagos tours left nothing to chance. It is our privilege to provide our guests with the style and comfort of the Endemic, the finest ship cruising the Galapagos Islands! Book the Galapagos Endemic luxury yacht cruise for your next vacation, today.
