Galapagos Legend

Galapagos Legend

This impressive vessel, with capacity for 100 guests, was extensively refitted in 2017 to better enhance your Galapagos experience. As well as being the fastest cruise ship operating in the islands, she remains the only vessel with an onboard pool.  Fast, sleek and beautifully appointed, she retains a cozy, homely and intimate atmosphere. Her classic, yet contemporary interiors perfectly balance the huge open deck space.

Galapagos Legend
Coral I & Coral II

Coral I & Coral II

The Coral I & II are gorgeous, comfortable, sister yachts offering charming social areas distributed on three decks, with both outdoor and interior spaces allowing you to enjoy an intimate expedition experience in your own way. With a capacity for 36 and 20 guests respectively, the vessels offer open deck areas with a Jacuzzi to make the best of your relaxing time while cruising the islands. The interiors are thoughtfully designed to resemble a private yacht experience in a cozy ambiance. The restaurant serves delicious Ecuadorian and international cuisine even extending to a BBQ dinner on the open-air Moon Deck. They are the perfect cruise vessels for charter groups where the thrill and comfort are guaranteed.

Go Galapagos - Eco Luxury

Eco Luxury Experience

Providing an ecologically sound cruise definitely does not mean that we have to compromise on luxury! Go Galapagos - Kleintours is acutely aware of the fragility and importance of the Galapagos National Park in which we have been operating and doing things right since 1983. Some of our eco-friendly practices include that all toiletries provided in our cabins are biodegradable and made from natural components as well as all the cleaning products used during housekeeping. As a complimentary gift, guests will find a thermos in each cabin to be refilled at one of our vessel’s potable water stations, thus reducing the use of plastic bottles. Our vessels are equipped with sophisticated water treatment plants to desalinate, filter and purify water for consumable use. The decor of our vessels is acquired from sustainable-certified teak plantations and all our food supply is carefully planned to reduce kitchen waste. We aim to live the present and protect the future. While being pampered on one of our 5-star, boutique cruises, with true local flavor and personalized service, we want you still feel good about yourself in the comforting knowledge that our sustainable practices will preserve the integrity of the islands for generations to come.

A Typical Cruise Day

A soothing morning wakeup call signals a freshly prepared al fresco breakfast on deck. Armed with snorkel gear, sunblock and camera we then board our pangas and head towards shore for our morning adventure. Every excursion is different, but might include a visit where we squeeze past boobies nesting on the narrow trail, sit and watch endemic waved albatross absorbed in their intricate courtship ritual, or stare into the eyes of a curious sea lion underwater as it peers into our face mask.

Returning aboard for a sumptuous, buffet-style, lunch we are able to enjoy time to relax in the pool, jacuzzi or on deck looking for wildlife and watching the scenery change as we cruise to our afternoon destination.

With every new visitor site being different from the last, we can once again expect another uniquely Galapagos experience for the afternoon hike. This could quite possibly be followed by another fabulous snorkel with turtles, large schools of yellow-tailed surgeonfish or even penguins! Some might choose to follow the dramatic shoreline in a kayak or effortlessly glide over the sea bed from the comfort of our motorized glass-bottom boat.

Return to the vessel to enjoy a delicious BBQ on deck as the sun sets on the horizon or, a sophisticated a la carte dinner. After dinner is a time to enjoy one of our many onboard activities, relax or be outside stargazing.
