Board the newest ship in the tranquil Galapagos waters - the Petrel. Launched in 2015, this luxurious catamaran combines a flare of modern style with a dedicated crew to provide you the absolute best Galapagos experience. Just like its namesake, the Petrel is both elegant and swift as it cuts silently through the archipelago, bringing its guests to all corners of these enchanting islands.

Eight spacious cabins provide space for 16 passengers, and multiple social areas can be found on each deck. Enjoy the Jacuzzi on the sun deck, or perhaps relax with a cocktail in the al fresco dining area after a long day of snorkeling and hiking. For each meal, the chef prepares a culinary delight that will replenish your energy for the next activity. 

If that's not enough, then rest assured that you can count on a knowledgeable & bilingual naturalist guide and a first-class crew that will accompany you throughout the whole experience.

Cabins
There are six staterooms and two suites, each with a private bathroom, hot running water, individually controlled air conditioning, and even a balcony. Additionally, the fact that this is a twin-hulled motor catamaran means that you will enjoy more stability than single-hulled vessels, especially on the long overnight navigations.

Beyond expectations! Then again we weren't sure what to expect. Lovely stay at the lodge, met other like-minded travelers (many had their trips planned by Adventure Life) and the owner was a gracious hostess. It felt like you were one happy family, visiting with a favorite aunt.
