The new Catamaran Cormorant incorporates the very best of Galapagos catamaran design and cruises the islands in style. Its practical and elegant design provides more comfort, superior speed, excellent stability and meets all the latest safety standards. The Cormorant offers generous, comfortable accommodation and the amenities of a larger boat while still preserving the relaxed exclusivity of a smaller vessel. All cabins on board are of a comfortable standard and the modern and ample accommodation includes a huge sun deck with Jacuzzi and al fresco dining. 

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.

Guest Testimonial

The Galapagos.  After Mashpi we were somewhat apprehensive and hoping that the luxury and diversity of the Lodge would not deter from the different experience that was awaiting us on the MV Eclipse. Wow!  The whole job lot with the crew, the guides, the food, the other guests and the islands and wildlife . . . .  just blew us away.  An American lady and her husband that we teamed up with on some trips said to us "How are we going to explain to friends and family back home about this place?"  We all agreed that you couldn't!
Thanks for organising the holiday Eleanor and thanks to A&K
