Coral 1 & II are very comfortable sister yachts offering charming public areas over 3 decks and accommodating 36 and 20 guests respectively. You will enjoy the intimate experience of a private yacht, with delicious Ecuadorean and international cuisine served in elegant restaurants. The cuisine can be extended to a BBQ dinner on the open-air Moon deck. Both yachts offer very personalised service, with a 1 naturalist guide for a maximum of 10-12 guests, lower than most other vessels.

The air-conditioned cabins are well-appointed with picture windows, twin or full size beds and private facilities. 

The itineraries available range from 3 and 4 night cruises that can be combined to make 7, 10 or 11 night extended cruises exploring the North, East, West and South of the Galapagos Islands.

Good choice for families 

The Coral 1 & II vessels are ideal for family groups, with interconnecting cabins and discounts available for children.
