On the Endemic, the Elite, and Ocean Spray

The modern motor catamarans like the Endemic, Elite, and Ocean Spray are safe, comfortable, and have all the amenities you would expect from a luxury cruising vessel.

The Endemic, for example, features top-shelf cuisine that can cater to your special dietary requests, flat screen tv in the briefing area for nightly briefings, complimentary snorkeling equipment, clear-bottom sea kayaks, and standup paddleboards.

Our luxury cruises in the Galapagos Islands spend time cruising through the sea and stopping at must-see island locations. A typical day on a Galapagos luxury yacht like the Endemic, Elite or Ocean Spray might include breakfast and a morning expedition to a visitor site.

At the site, you may see Frigate Birds, Blue-footed Boobies, sea lions, tortoises, iguanas, or Galapagos Penguins. A delicious lunch on board the ship will follow, as well as an afternoon trip to a spectacular snorkeling spot and then another gourmet meal for dinner. Cap this off with a cold drink on the deck while watching a dazzling sunset, and you have the perfect Galapagos day!
