The 108-foot Cormorant is a recent addition to one of the most up-to-date catamaran fleets in the Galapagos. With itineraries that range from four-day jaunts to 15-day mega-cruises, this catamaran offers options for every type of traveler.
The Cormorant is designed to maximize its guests’ comfort and safety. Accommodating 16 passengers in eight cabins, it offers modern decor, gorgeous indoor and outdoor public areas, and an 11-man crew that teaches snorkeling and kayaking—as well as a deep understanding of one of the world’s most unusual ecosystems.
When you book your space on the Cormorant, you’ll choose between single and double staterooms, as well as two expansive suites for more luxurious living. Each cabin features one queen or two twin beds, private bath with hot and cold water, plasma TV, and individual climate control for your comfort.
The Galapagos are all about spectacular views, and every stateroom boasts panoramic picture windows to allow you to see the tortoises and boobies as they pass. Or if the weather is right, sit out in a wicker chair on your private balcony to enjoy the sun.
The catamaran is also full of decks and salons to allow you to get to know your fellow travelers. The al fresco dining area is the perfect setting to enjoy succulent barbecue while watching the sunset, while the Jacuzzi surrounded by colorful beach chairs affords a perfect blend of sun and shade.
The Cormorant offers other amenities as well. An on-board library allows you to learn about the Galapagos’ unique ecosystem, while talks by the resident naturalist promote awareness of the islands’ special history. And in the evening, when you want to celebrate, you can do so in style in the vessel’s elegant lounge. A perfect balance between small-vessel intimacy and big-ship comfort.
