San Cristóbal

The Cormorant is equipped to accommodate 16 passengers. Cabins are decorated to reflect the streamlined design of the rest of the ship, and have all he amenities necessary for a comfortable trip. You also can elect to stay a larger suite. Visit the main deck for meals in the restaurant, and socializing in the lounge area. There are bars located on the main and upper deck. On the sun deck, take a dip in the Jacuzzi, or snap a few pictures from the comfort of the lounge chairs. When you retire to your room, you’ll have a private balcony, and the chance to enjoy the scenery on your own.

Each day will bring a new destination in the archipelago. Ever since Darwin’s first expedition, the Galápagos’ main attraction has been the animals. What type of animals you see depends on the season you visit, but you’re most likely to spot sea lions, Sally Lightfoot crabs, Galápagos tortoises, iguanas, and rare, migratory birds. Peer over the hull to see dolphins and huge schools of fish swimming past your vessel. You may even get the chance to spot a whale.
