  • A range of itineraries to choose from
  • Spacious Catamaran offering more stability
  • Good service and amenities

Sister to the Archipel 2, the Archipel 1 is a comfortable first-class catamaran perfect for cruising the Galapagos Islands.  Comfort and space is key aboard this vessel and there are ample sundecks to enjoy the beautiful surrounding as well as a spacious interior lounge area and bar.  The design of the catamaran helps to reduce the swell of the sea and provide more stability than other types of vessel so guests can enjoy a more agreeable journey to the different Islands.  The superior Archipell I have a good level of service with a total of 7 crew members and one knowledgeable naturalist guide who has been trained and licensed by the National Park.

With a capacity of only 16 passengers, the ship offers 8 well-appointed double cabins with lower beds set in a double or twin configuration. Each cabin is located on the main deck and features air-conditioning, private bathroom with hot water and a view to the sea. All cabins are located on the main deck and has a private bathroom with hot water.  

The vessel has a range of itineraries to choose from which can be set up and combined as 5, 8, 11, 12 and up to 15-day cruises.  Guests will be taken on a variety of locations besides the normal cruises routes including the island of Genovesa famous for being a nesting site to large bird colonies.
