The Santa Cruz was built specifically for the Galapagos and has forty-four cabins. Though it is one of the larger ships that we offer, the level of service, personal attention and careful organisation make sure the quality of the experience is just as high as on the smaller ships with the added advantage of more infrastructure.

The Santa Cruz is one of the best options available for those seeking to explore the islands with limited time as it offers both three and four night itineraries (as well as a combination seven night itinerary). Full details of the expedition are available on request. There are a range of different room options available including suites and superior cabins with double beds.

The guiding is superb with group excursions carefully managed and groups typically just of ten guests. Facilities include a bar and jacuzzi on the sun deck as well as a glass bottomed boat for observing marine life.
