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.
