Cruise Overview

The Galapagos Elite started operating on June 15th, 2019 and was specifically designed for sailing the sapphire waters of the Enchanted Islands. A sleek, twin-hulled catamaran provides its guests with a steady, safe cruise without the rocking and swaying common to the older, single-hulled yachts that dominated the island cruise industry for decades.

In addition to better stability, the design of the Elite allows for more space for everything on board, including social areas and suites. Guests of all ages will enjoy the ample, semi-covered sky deck, the alfresco dining area, and the cozy bar-salon.

Needless to say, the Galapagos Elite features state-of-the-art navigation computers and safety equipment: safety and reliability are essential parts of any Galapagos luxury experience.

All Suites onboard the Galapagos Elite are spacious, comfortable and well-appointed: the perfect place to relax and recharge after a day spent exploring the islands. Each suite includes an ocean view and an outdoor balcony and a private bathroom. All suites can have one queen-sized or two single beds.

We are particularly proud of the panoramic windows featured in each suite: unlike the heavy, round porthole windows of the older yachts, each suite on the Elite will have grand windows offering panoramic views. They are not even windows, exactly: think of them more like a wall of tempered glass, with a door to get to your balcony. Each morning and afternoon will bring a different stunning Galapagos seascape!

Guests will greatly enjoy meals served onboard the Elite. Our professional cuisine specialists prepare three delicious, nutritious meals per day: breakfast and mainly lunch will be served buffet-style, with a more elegant sit-down dinner served in the alfresco dining area on the partially covered sky deck.

Meals are always made from fresh ingredients, locally provided from farms on the islands whenever possible. Special dietary needs are never a problem and kids’ meals are available.

The Galapagos Elite is operated by Golden Galapagos Cruises, which has plenty of experience with the islands, the ships, and visitors’ needs. The professionals at Golden Galapagos are well-known in the industry for their perfectionism when it comes to planning and operating cruises.
