Chosen as South America’s Leading Boutique Cruise for 2017 by World Travel Awards, the Galapagos Sea Star Journey offers a winning combination of contemporary design, comfort, and intimacy. For travelers seeking luxury as they tour the world’s most pristine wildlife reserve, this 16-passenger yacht offers a truly exceptional experience.

The Sea Star Journey is a 138-foot vessel with eight roomy suites. Its cabins are perfect for family travel, while its expert crew is trained to provide a personalized adventure for everyone on board. And of course, the craft uses sustainable practices at all times to protect the Galapagos’ fragile ecosystem.


When you travel on the Sea Star Journey, you’ll have your choice of seven spacious Matrimonial Suites, each equipped with panoramic windows to enjoy the dazzling seascapes of the Galapagos. Every suite comes with a private bathroom, independently controlled air conditioning, a minibar, and TV. You can choose between one queen or two twin beds, with accompanying sofas.

Common Areas

The yacht’s luxurious common areas start with the dining room, where you’ll sample Ecuadorian and international cuisine specially developed by the on-board chef. It also encompasses an expansive solarium, with a perfect blend of open and shaded areas, Jacuzzis, and reclining lounge chairs. And if you opt to go below deck, you’ll find a comfortable bar/lounge, as well as a library featuring a full stock of books and educational videos on the islands’ marvelous fauna.
