Coral I & Coral II
Two small motor yachts offering family-friendly cruises with a nautical feel.
Coral I and II motor yachts offer cruises with a real nautical feel. The vessels carry 36 and 20 passengers respectively, but onboard facilities and the style of each yacht is pretty much the same. The size is perfect for anyone looking for a sociable and comfortable cruise without the anonymity you sometimes get on a larger cruise ship.
Décor is also very much inspired by the sea with gleaming teak panelling throughout, and fabrics and carpets are of a deep marine blue and gold. Passengers are accommodated in compact but bright cabins with lower berths, air-conditioning and en suite facilities with plenty of storage. We particularly recommend the Junior cabins, which have windows with panoramic views (the others have portholes). There are interconnected cabins for families.The spacious restaurant has large picture windows and the sun deck is furnished with loungers and a Jacuzzi.
The yachts are staffed by crew members and two English speaking naturalist guides, who conduct the landfall excursions during the cruise.
What our clients say
97% of our clients rated their experience with us as Excellent or Good.
I cruised on Coral 1 last year so knew what to expect. I was glad to be able to upgrade my cabin (for a charge). One of the guides - Hernan - was exceptionally knowledgeable about the wildlife, which added to my enjoymentSB, Edinburgh
A fantastic experience. We were upgraded as there was a problem with our assigned cabin, that was a pleasant surprise. The crew were all so happy and helpful and the food was fantastic with a great selection. There were two guides and Lola was particularly informative and passionate about the Galapagos ensuring to share as much as possible. A firm favorite!JC, Usk
Had the best time on Coral1. Our Naturalist Vanessa and Hernan were superb. They really did make our Galapagos experience unforgettable. We loved every minute of it. Well planned itinerary and they made sure we saw everything. Highly recommended and would go back on the Coral 1 just for those 2 guidesCA, Bromley
