ARCHIPELL I

Welcome aboard the Archipell I Yacht

The Archipell yacht has large social areas that will complement a comfortable stay. Shared with a total of just 16 guests; the lounge, the solarium, the rest areas and the 'Al Fresco' dining room are excellent options for you to relax and enjoy the nature that surrounds you.

The Galapagos Islands are an excellent destination for wildlife and bird observation, and of course also for photography and filming. Discover the wide range of activities that are included in our cruise programmes to experience the closest and most intimate encounters with wildlife, and to perceive the unique nature of Galapagos from different perspectives. Some activities depend on local conditions and will be coordinated together with the guide; others are optional, such as strolling around touristic towns or leisure and entertainment on-board.
