A spacious 70 meter motor yacht, La Pinta was extensively renovated especially for Galapagos Expedition Cruises and receives consistently good feedback. She’s been designed to cater for the most discerning traveler, offering high standards of service and food whilst maintaining a relaxed atmosphere. Despite being a relatively large vessel, La Pinta accommodates just 48 passengers, meaning the experience is still personalized.

Up to four naturalist guides accompany each departure, leading a variety of activities and excursions, including snorkeling, whale watching and island walks to discover the remarkable flora and fauna of the archipelago. The guides are experts in their field and impart their local knowledge so that guests can fully appreciate their surroundings and the wildlife they encounter both on and offshore. A fully-qualified medic also accompanies all departures and is on call 24/7.
