Elite Galapagos Mega Catamaran

The award-winning Galapagos Elite offers a nicely grown-up, suitably stylish option for your luxury Galapagos cruise. With only eight cabins, this is one of the most exclusive Galapagos vessels around—and it really feels it once onboard. In fact, even from the outside with its bright white and golden hull, there is no doubting the Galapagos Elite’s boutique credentials; you simply won’t see a better looking catamaran cruising through the archipelago. Inside, the story continues, as the observation deck, surrounding daybeds and outdoor Jacuzzi are all first-class, contemporary and sleek, more like a private luxury yacht than a Galapagos cruise vessel. The Galapagos Elite also shines when it comes to the cabins and suites, each of which enjoys a wall of glass and French windows, a private balcony, king-size (or twin) beds and a sparkling en suite bathroom with a rain shower and marble sinks too. Add in a lounge bar, fine restaurant and routes which take in the best of the Galapagos’ western, central or eastern islands, and the Elite speaks for itself.

BOUTIQUE GALAPAGOS CATAMARAN

If you’re looking for a small, boutique Galapagos vessel that enjoys all the major highlights, wildlife, snorkeling and on-land tours whilst in a contemporary-cool, sophisticated setting, then the Galapagos Elite is a great bet. Its lesser passenger numbers mean that each tour feels a little more intimate, and when you do want a quiet moment to simply sit on-deck and admire the majesty of this beautiful place, it’s easily done. Whether in the privacy of your cabin and balcony or up on one of two plush observation areas, perhaps from your sunbed or the Jacuzzi, moments of appreciation for these blissful surrounds go hand-in-hand with time spent aboard the Galapagos Elite. The décor is also something special, high-end and minimalist, though subtle and certainly not out of place in such a special natural environment.

LARGE CABINS AND SUITES

Another major draw of booking a tour with the Galapagos Elite is the size of their cabins and suites, with all but the one single cabin measuring nearly 400sq ft in size, which includes a super spacious bathroom and walk-in rain shower, plus your private furnished balcony too. Then with a wall of glass (providing lots of natural light) and color scheme of white, chrome and blonde wood, that sense of space is amplified even further within each cabin—which can only ever enhance both your day-to-day comfort and overall enjoyment of this, a once-in-a-lifetime Galapagos cruise with the Elite.

Ideal for Couples looking for a boutique luxury catamaran tour, of families/small groups who would like a private, luxury Galapagos mega catamaran experience
