The spirit of Petrel, Haugan Cruises
Board the luxurious Petrel that sails the tranquil waters surrounding the Galapagos Islands. This beautiful yacht offers the best creature comforts while you go in search of the region’s incredible attractions. Eight spacious cabins accommodate 16 passengers, and multiple social areas can be found on each deck. There are six staterooms and two suites, each with a private bathroom, hot running water, individually controlled air conditioning, and your own balcony, equipped with two chairs and a coffee table, a great place to gently start and end each day in one of the most exclusive cruising destinations in the world. A large lounge on the Upper Deck and a cosier one on the Lower Deck give plenty of common space for relaxing with a book from the library or a movie when on board, in addition to the inviting sun deck that is adorned with flexible reclining chairs and an indulgent Jacuzzi, which is always a favourite for all ages.
Just like its namesake bird, the Petrel is both elegant and swift as it cuts silently through the archipelago, bringing you to all corners of these enchanting islands. Enjoy tanning on the sun deck, or perhaps relax with a cocktail in the al fresco dining area after a fun-filled day of snorkelling and hiking. For each meal, the chef prepares a culinary delight that will replenish your energy for your next activity. You can count on a knowledgeable and bilingual naturalist guide and a first-class crew that will accompany you throughout your experience. First class guides assist with up-close encounters of iconic Galapagos species such as white tipped sharks, giant sea turtles, rays, marine iguanas, blue-footed boobies, whales and much more.
