A luxury catamaran built for Galapagos cruising, with 9 suites, all with balconies, beautifully furnished interiors and lots of deck space. You’ll be cruising in style and comfort, looked after by an attentive yet discreet crew.

Treasure of the Galapagos is a modern catamaran operating in the Galapagos since 2010. She provides a stable ride and high levels of comfort. Cabins are large and well designed. The décor is contemporary and subtly sophisticated, using soothing shades of chocolate or cream, and soft lighting provided by ceiling lights. There’s plenty of room to store your belongings for the voyage. Bathrooms have porcelain hand basins, flush toilets and full size showers. Each cabin has a private balcony where you can sit and look out at the changing scenery.

Most meals are served at 4 small tables each seating 4 in the dining room, though informal barbecues take place on the sun deck, cooked in front of you and eaten al fresco.  Tea and coffee are available all day. The lounge has sofas and tub chairs and you’ll have your daily briefing from the guide here in advance of each island visit. The library has a selection of books and DVDs for you to enjoy. There are open areas on the upper and sun deck including an uncovered space where you can recline on one of the loungers and work on your tan. Sitting in the hot tub at the stern is a wonderful way to relax, while enjoying the ocean views.
