Galapagos Islands: Cachalote

Cachalote

The small motorised Cachalote sailboat offers guests a true seaborne experience, and will delight those who prefer economical accommodation and to feel close to the ocean. She carries just 16 passengers in eight compact cabins with bunk beds which nevertheless have private facilities, air-conditioning and a porthole each. Meals are taken at communal tables in the simple dining room and there is a small saloon. The use of polished teak wood décor throughout adds to the cosy nautical ambience. There is a crew of seven, including a cook and an English-speaking guide.

What our experts say

Cachalote is the best value boat offering economical cruises in the islands. With a traditional nautical feel, she is well maintained. Cabins are small, with upper and lower bunks, and there is not much in the way of public areas for relaxation, but service is good and you reel you are having a real sea-faring experience.
