Discover the beauty and unique wildlife of the Galapagos National Park as you cruise aboard the stylish yet informal La Pinta, a haven of relaxation and tranquillity that allows you to cruise in comfort and safety. Enjoy encounters with unique fauna such as the giant Galapagos tortoise, land and marine iguanas, Galapagos penguins, blue-footed boobies and the famous Darwin’s finches. Cash and cards are accepted for on board spending money.
Why we like it:
"One of the larger vessels in the Galapagos but still maintains a cosy small ship feel. You won’t spend much time in your very spacious cabin but when you do you can still enjoy the beauty landscapes (or star filled sky at night) via the floor to ceiling windows. And ensuite is much more like your bathroom at home than a pokey ship ensuite, proper shower and all! Loads of things to enjoy on board… Jacuzzi, enjoy a cocktail on the al fresco deck or observation area towards the bow and hang with the captain and crew on the bridge (open bridge policy). Kayaks are an added bonus. Don’t want to snorkel and get wet, no problems they have got a glass bottomed boat."
