Designed for operations in remote areas, the state-of-the-art Santa Cruz II is an expedition vessel that offers the perfect infrastructure for Galapagos exploration. Measuring just over 70 metres, the generous 5-deck craft holds 50 cabins to accommodate 90 guests in style and comfort. She features ample, luxury-sized social areas indoors and out, as well as two hot tubs with ocean views. Known for excellent standards, superb service, expert crew and knowledgeable naturalist guides, the Santa Cruz II is the only first class deluxe option for your Galapagos adventure.

This stately vessel has one of the top itineraries on offer and luxury amenities such as private bathrooms, air conditioning, hot water, an expansive sundeck, a classy bar/salon, a gym, a reading room and a natural history library.


The Santa Cruz II offers the novelty of a glass bottomed boat, an immersive and creative way to witness underwater wonders while staying dry! If you are not a snorkeling enthusiast, this is the perfect way to experience the varied marine life of the Galapagos. Also on offer are kayaks and pangas (inflatable dinghies) for coastal exploration.


99% of visitor sites are not shared with other vessels, creating a pristine and private adventure into the Galapagos. The fragility, specialness and singularity of the islands and their wildlife have guided the operators to create a travel experience founded on respectful contact with the natural world, filled with interpretation, understanding and, of course, with fun!

Ideal forthose wanting spacious social areas and cabins that can be interconnected. The three Darwin suites on Panorama deck sleep up to three and can connect to a twin room to create a big family cabin.
