Conceived for operations in remote areas, the Santa Cruz II yacht is a luxurious, state-of-the-art expedition vessel that allows guests to make the most of their Galapagos cruise experience. Run by a crew with decades of island experience, this spacious yacht has five decks, which hold 50 stylish cabins and numerous social areas for maximum enjoyment. The Swedish-designed cabins reflect the latest in cruise trends, offering comfortable spaces and large picture windows with incredible views. Outside, guests are spoilt for choice on every deck. From indoor and outdoor dining areas, a fitness room and two hot tubs, to the elegant bar and lounge, the well-stocked library and the sun deck, the yacht aims to please with sophisticated simplicity.
Island explorations are at the heart of the cruise itineraries, and guests can look forward to snorkelling with frolicking sea lions, catching glimpses of sharks underneath the glass-bottom boat or taking pangas and kayaks to shore to enjoy the spectacular volcanic coasts and its incredible wildlife, including sea lions, fur seals, giant tortoises, Galapagos hawks, American flamingos and marine iguanas.
