Galapagos Catamaran

Galapagos catamaran cruise - Alya

The Alya offers 9 comfortable cabins, as well as many social areas aimed at your comfort and relaxation. Our complete itineraries combine hiking, snorkeling, beach and kayaking; while our Certified Guides will introduce you to the most relevant sites.

The Alya's catamaran design guarantees you smooth sailing in the seas surrounding the Galapagos Islands. This luxury-class, 16-passenger boat offers the travelers a choice of eight-, five-and four-day cruises through the archipelago. The itineraries include snorkeling, kayaking and hiking.

After the day’s excursions, relax in the library viewing a movie from the DVD collection, or on the sundeck while enjoying a drink from one of the catamaran’s two bars. You’ll rest well in one of the nine pleasant cabins, eight of which have private balconies. All are equipped with private bathrooms, cold/hot water, air conditioning, safe box and other amenities. Throughout, the Alya is elegantly and tastefully decorated.

The Alya’s eight crew members and bilingual, certified naturalist guide will assure you a safe and informative journey through the Galapagos Islands.
