Galapagos Islands, Ecuador
Experience the Galapagos from the luxurious M/C Ocean Spray, a 113-foot motor catamaran built in 2011 and designed to cruise the islands in elegance and comfort. This high-performance yacht with a 43-foot beam accommodates a maximum of 16 guests on two decks. The third-floor sundeck offers 360-degree views. While quarters are exceptionally spacious, the ship's small size ensures intimacy and maneuverability. Eight large double staterooms and one smaller single stateroom each have private balconies with chairs and a table for quiet lingering. A sprawling sundeck offers deluxe lounge chairs and ample room for socializing, plus a Jacuzzi—warm up after snorkeling or soak beneath the stars. The Ocean Spray is equipped gear for a range of off-ship adventures, carrying kayaks, snorkel gear and wetsuits.
Cabin interiors feature a crisp blue and white nautical theme with accents of gleaming woodwork and stunning Galapagos wildlife photography. Each stateroom has a comfortable sofa or plush chair, and ample storage space with a closet and drawers. Private en suite bathrooms include a hot-and-cold freshwater shower, toilet and sink, plus robes, fluffy towels and bath products. An additional mirror and vanity area are located outside the bathroom.
In addition to the ship's captain and our two Nat Hab Expedition Leaders, eight crew members are on board to attend to every detail. Enjoy fine meals with a view as you're seated alongside picture windows in the air-conditioned main floor dining room, or dine under the shade canopy on the upper deck. Bright and inviting, the lounge has giant windows, long lengths of couch spaces and shining wood floors.
