Cruising the Galapagos in Nemo I is informative and fun. With accommodation for just 14 passengers you will soon get to know your fellow travellers, as well as the friendly crew. When not exploring the islands with the resident naturalist guide you spend most of your waking time on deck, either soaking up the sun or resting in the shade. Meals are usually served outdoors on the covered terrace though indoor dining can be arranged. They are served as buffets, matching the relaxed ambience on board. There’s a cosy lounge where you can watch DVDs, read through reference books and enjoy presentations by your guide.

Cabins are comfy, compact and well designed. Each has one upper and one lower berth and shelves for storing your belongings. All cabins are air conditioned and have an en-suite shower room with full hot and cold water.
