If you’re looking for an intimate way to explore the most exotic and pristine islands in the Galapagos, this 10-cabin yacht is for you. Unlike some cruise ships, which offer hurried tours of only the most-visited tourist spots, the Galapagos Odyssey takes you to the remote fringes of the archipelago, where you’ll see the Galapagos penguins and red-footed boobies visible nowhere else on earth.
The Galapagos Odyssey is a 135-foot cruise vessel that was fully refurbished in 2014. Its triple decks include a spacious sun terrace and shaded areas for cooling off after an excursion on shore, as well as an open-air dining nook. Best of all, though, the 10-person crew includes expert naturalists to help you identify the unique species you’ll see all around you, as you embark on your adventure into these truly enchanted islands.
Passengers can choose from twin or matrimonial cabins, on either the main or upper deck. With an average size of 220 square feet, these cabins are like comfortable hotel rooms, complete with individual bathrooms and climate control, showers, and large windows that can be opened from within. Sofas and mini-bars are also standard.
The Galapagos Odyssey’s comfort begins on the sun deck, where comfortable loungers and a full Jacuzzi allow you to enjoy the warm weather. These open spaces are complemented by two shaded patios, with poolside bars for enjoying your favorite mixed drinks. Add to this the dining room and lounge serving gourmet cuisine, and the open reception area in the ship’s stern, and you have an elegant way to explore the farthest reaches of South America’s most iconic wildlife destination.
