When Do You Want To Go?
Explore the wonders of the intriguing Galapagos Islands on first-class yacht - Coral I. This ship offers a unique combination of elegance and style with several short cruise itineraries which take in the east, west, central or southern Galapagos Islands. Larger than its sister ship, Coral I hosts 36 passengers and offers a range of on-board amenities to occupy all guests. You embark on your archipelago cruise from either Baltra or San Cristóbal, both interesting islands which you can opt to explore further before or after your cruise. Depending on which itinerary you select, you could be spending leisurely days hiking lush highland terrain and exploring lava tunnels, photographing tropical birds and wildlife, or even swimming with sea lions, penguins and tropical fish! If you don’t want to miss any of the islands, it’s possible to book a back-to-back cruise on two separate itineraries, so if you miss out on Fausto Llerena Breeding Centre on Santa Cruz or Vicente Roca Point on Isla Isabela the first time, you still can still visit! An on-board naturalist travels with you for the duration of your trip on Coral I to answer any wildlife, history or cultural questions you may have about the islands.
Amenities on Coral I, as with its sister ship are plentiful. Meals are freshly prepared by the on-board chef and served buffet-style in the schooner style dining area. Afterwards retire in the old-world lobby lounge, complete with teak interior and corner bar which stocks soft drinks, beer, wine and spirits. Outdoors, Coral I boasts three sun decks where you can bird or dolphin watch or relax in the outdoor jacuzzi with a cocktail and marvel over spectacular Galapagos sunsets.
Cabins on Coral I are elegant and comfortable with private en-suite bathrooms, hot water and air-conditioning throughout. Accommodation is comprised of 8 standard plus cabins and 2 standard cabins on the Sea Deck, 2 Junior Cabins on Earth Deck and 6 on Sky Deck. Coral I standard cabins are equipped with twin beds, and Junior suites with Queen-size beds. Each are dressed with clean, white linens and cool blue or neutral colour soft furnishings to bring the outside, indoors.
