Galapagos Islands Cruise: 5-Day Catamaran Sail Aboard the \'Nemo I\'
Whitetip reef sharks, giant tortoises, dragon-like iguanas and sea lions all play into your Galapagos Islands adventure on this 5-day cruise. The ‘Nemo I’ catamaran sails around the southeastern section of the UNESCO-listed archipelago, with stops at Santa Cruz, Isabela’s Las Tintoreras bay and tortoise breeding center, Floreana, and Española’s Suarez Point and Gardner Bay. Work up a sun-kissed tan on the boat’s hanging nets, and snorkel and kayak at points throughout your journey. Sleep four nights in a twin cabin on this small-group tour limited to just 14 passengers.

Hop aboard the Nemo I catamaran for a 5-day cruise into the southeastern section of the UNESCO-listed Galapagos Islands, an archipelago of 19 islands located off the Ecuadorian coast. (See Itinerary below for details.) During favorable weather conditions, your captain turns off the boat’s eco-friendly engines and glides the boat along the Pacific with unfurled sails. ??

The recently refurbished catamaran accommodates a max of 14 passengers, and is about one and a half times wider than many of the motor yachts that cruise through the Galapagos Islands. Gaze out of the main deck lounge\'s panoramic windows, and hang out on the rooftop sun deck or on the suspended nets, right above the waves.??

Enjoy your buffet-style meals (beginning with lunch on the first day until breakfast on the day of departure) in the shaded terrace outside. Water, tea and coffee are included, while the bar on board provides other beverages for purchase. The lounge offers a cozy library and seating for you to listen to your Galapagos National Park–certified naturalist guide provide nightly briefings on what you can expect to see the following day.??

In each twin cabin, located in the hulls (lower deck), enjoy a private bathroom, air-conditioning and a fan. You’ll access your cabin through a clear-cover hatch; with the portholes they bathe the cabin in a good amount of light. Some cabins have matrimonial beds, but most offer berth (bunk-style) beds. Get nauseous on boat trips? Rest easy knowing that the width of the catamaran, combined with the cabins’ location at sea level, prevents the boat from rolling around the sea.??

A certified crew makes sure you experience a comfortable and exciting journey. To reach the islands, you’ll typically leave the catamaran at the anchorage-site and board a dinghy for the final stretch to land. Your crew is trained and ready to assist you in and out of the boat as needed. Throughout the trip, you’ll enjoy opportunities to snorkel, scuba dive (own expense), or explore by sea kayak some of the protected bays and shorelines.
