Built in Guayaquil in the early years of the 21st century, San Jose was designed for cruising in the Galapagos Islands. She has 8 cabins accommodating 16 passengers. All are en-suite, have air conditioning and opening windows.

The main areas are pleasantly spacious. Relax in the lounge between shore excursions as you chat to other travellers, watch a DVD or leaf through a book from the small reference library. Enjoy meals in the light dining room, and unwind on deck where the barman will serve you the drink of your choice. The top deck is given over to relaxation with sun loungers and a seating area, and is a great place to take in panoramic views of the islands.
