THE ALTA

The Alta is one of the few ships in the Galapagos that can deliver the experience of sailing through the water with nothing but the sound of the wind hitting the sails and the hull breaking the water. It is one of the most beautiful ships on the Islands, ideal for traveleler seeking exclusivity, style, and uniqueness. Gorgeous detailing and furnishings carry the grandeur and special charm that only sailing ships carry. When the conditions are appropriate, the sails are hoisted with engines turned off to become one of the most striking ships in the Galapagos.

16 guests in 8 cabins, 8 crew, and one naturalist guide will enjoy the ship's features including a comfortable salon for lectures and presentations; TV/video system, inside al fresco dining areas, a sundeck with lounge chairs, and a resting area at the stern of the ship. The boat also provides sea kayaks, snorkeling gear, and wetsuits.

Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are served buffet style and prepared by specially-trained chefs. The menu varies with tropical exotic fruits always available.

Cabins have exceptional accommodations, private facilities, climate controls, and ample space to hang and store clothing. Bathrooms have hair dryers, amenities, and ample space to store toiletries.

THE NATURALIST CRUISES

The most popular way to experience the Galapagos, these departures put you in contact with nature as much as possible. This is ideal for bird watchers, and those interested in viewing wildlife up close.

Special activities include easy hikes, easy snorkeling, kayaking, and dinghy rides.

THE ACTIVE CRUISE

Ideal for adolescents and adults who want to get the most out of every day. The trip is great for adventure-seeking families and groups who are looking for a challenge aside from a restful trip. Featuring longer hikes, more opportunities to snorkel and go kayaking, and even the possibility to experience the richness of the islands from an entirely different perspective. How much or how little activity is entirely up to the guest.

Special activities include longer hikes ranging from intermediate to difficult that take you places not many go; more snorkeling to get a glimpse of the true underwater life in the Galapagos such as rays, turtles, and sharks; more kayaking to explore the cliffs, shores, mangroves, beaches, and coves; occasional diving of 2-3 dives for the week for certified divers who do not want to dedicate their trip to diving; and dinghy rides.
