WHY THIS TRIP
The Samba is a beautiful and graceful 78-foot steel-hulled motor-yacht, whose stabilizing sail offers a smooth ride. A Samba Galapagos Cruise offers a luxurious opportunity for small groups of 14 passengers on a full eight-day tour of the islands. The Samba is comfortable and well laid-out, meaning you will have plenty of space to relax in your cabin and in the ample public areas. She is the perfect yacht to enhance the magical nature of a trip to the Galapagos!
All of the Samba’s cabins are air conditioned and have private bathrooms, ensuring your comfort and privacy on the cruise. You will be able to enjoy the delicious meals onboard in the air-conditioned indoor saloon or under Equatorial sun on the outdoor dining area astern.
The Galapagos Islands are one of the world’s richest underwater environments so it is fitting that snorkeling is one of the highlights of this tour. The small group of up to 14 passengers on the Samba will enjoy ample deck space and quality service while sailing through the stunning Galapagos Islands.
