La Pinta

Click here to find out more >


La Pinta is a very smart luxury motor yacht accommodating 48 passengers. She is styled as an expedition yacht, offering a very special wildlife experience to its guests: there are three naturalist guides on board, and excursion groups can be split by interest and ability while never exceeding 16 people. Guest cabins are configured on the upper deck, each with a large panoramic window for an uninterrupted sense of connection with the islands and the ocean environment. There are connecting cabins for families.

The boat deck has a spacious lounge with large windows on three sides offering bird's eye views of the changing scenery outside. The library has deep, comfy armchairs, and there are computers with internet access, as well as a modern gym and a relaxing outdoor Jacuzzi. The dining room (breakfast and lunch are buffets, dinner is à la carte) is on the main deck, but in good weather meals may be offered al fresco on the covered sun deck.

Free snorkelling equipment and wetsuits are available on board. For guests who prefer to watch the underwater theatre from above sea level, the yacht has a glass-bottomed boat. Kayaks are also available, free of charge, for use after returning from excursions on the islands.

In line with La Pinta's expeditionary ethos, there is no typical cruise entertainment offered.

What our experts say

La Pinta successfully combines all the advantages of a larger expeditionary vessel - roomy cabins, comfy public areas, and a real feeling of space - with genuinely personal and personable service.  A varied itinerary and excellent naturalist guides meant we saw all the wildlife we’d been hoping for, and more, even down to the rare sighting  of a pod of Bryde’s whales.
