Archipell I and II

Prices from: £3,920pp for 8 days

The Archipell I and II are identical sister catamarans offering hi-spec accommodation and a wealth of indoor and outdoor space, making them a great choice for your Galapagos cruise.

The Archipell I and II were built in 2003 and 2005 respectively. Identical in design, they both have 8 large cabins, 2 configured as doubles and the others with twin beds. All have picture windows, lots of storage space, air conditioning and en-suite bathrooms.

When not out exploring the islands, you’ll be able to relax, taking your pick of the communal areas. Sit back and leaf through a book in the lounge, enjoy a drink at the bar as you chat with other travellers. The sun deck is just the place to unwind, doze in the heat and recharge your batteries before your next excursion.
