Luxury Cormorant Cruise Galápagos Islands PhotoLuxury Cormorant Cruise Galápagos Islands Photo

Sail the Cormorant around the Galápagos Islands, for an up-close look at the archipelago's ecology. The Cormorant is a catamaran-style cruise ship, and provides an elegant atmosphere for visitors to the Galápagos to enjoy every aspect of their voyage.

Passengers have their choice of cabins or suites. All accommodations come with a private balcony, so you can spend downtime admiring the view of the Pacific Ocean. Rooms have comfortable beds and immaculate bathrooms.

You’ll probably want to spend a lot of your time on the boat’s spacious sun deck. The sun deck has a Jacuzzi, so you can soak in the bubbles as you take in the watery landscape. Meals are served in the dining room on the main deck. Across from the dining room you’ll find the lounge and the library, spaces that provide cool, modern atmospheres. Passengers can also grab a drink at the bar on the upper deck.

You can choose from itineraries that last from 4 to 15 days. No matter what you select, you’ll visit sites that have cover a range of attractions in the Galápagos. Many of the islands have large populations of iguanas, Galápagos tortoises, and waterfowl. All of the cruises stop at least one beach, such as Cerro Brujo beach on San Cristobál Island, which is famous for its population of sea lions. The Galápagos islands were formed by volcanic eruptions, and form a habitat for an unusual variety of animals. If you have questions about what you see, a bilingual naturalist guide is a member of the Cormorant’s crew.
