Cachalote Explorer

Cachalote Explorer

From: US$3,000 (6D/5N)



The Cachalote Explorer cruise itineraries offer the option of 6, 8 and 15 day tours, visiting selected sites approved by the Galapagos National Park. Each of these itineraries is unique, rich and varied, and offers the opportunity to experience Galapagos up close and personal within a small group led by a highly experienced naturalist guide. Our two 8-day standard itineraries can be combined to form a 15-day itinerary which we highly recommend to those travelers who wish to have a complete, in-depth experience of the Galapagos Islands on a small cruise yacht.

Key Features:

  • Fully air-conditioned
  • All Rooms have private bathrooms / hot water
  • Remodeled in 2002 for more spaciousness
  • Multilingual naturalist guide
  • Awarded the Smart Voyager Certificate for sound conservation practices
