Each cabin has a well-appointed private bathroom, hot water, air conditioning and sleek modern design. All have ocean views with large portrait windows and some cabins also offer interconnecting facilities, ideal for families. This spacious catamaran accommodates 16 guests in 8 spacious cabins, all of which have private balconies. All soft drinks and juices onboard are complimentary and you will be invited to a champagne reception on arrival as well as being offered a complimentary fruit basket in your cabin.
From your comfortable base aboard the Cormorant, you will be able to explore the best visitor sites in the islands. There are many opportunities to hike, swim, snorkel, kayak, bird-watch and take great close-up photographs of the flora and fauna. The Cormorant anchors off-shore at two visitor sites per day. Passengers are taken ashore as a single maximum group size of sixteen with your dedicated naturalist guide who is certified and speaks fluent English. On the islands you will follow marked trails, walking at a leisurely pace, with your guide explaining the unusual sights you see. You will spend 3 to 4 hours at each site, allowing plenty of time to explore the abundant wildlife. The snorkelling schedule allows several immersions during the cruise. The use of snorkelling equipment and wetsuits is complimentary. Most of the snorkelling activities take place before or after island excursions, so that you will not miss the hikes.
