Simply put, the Petrel is one of our favorite luxury vessels sailing the waters of the Galapagos Islands. Named after the airy seabird common to the archipelago, the 16-passenger Petrel Luxury Galapagos Catamaran is like its namesake: elegant, swift and silent at sea. Guests will sail in comfort to various spots in the islands, where they can experience up-close encounters with Blue-footed boobies, iguanas, giant tortoises, sea lions and more.   One of the newest ships, the Petrel has become one of the best ways to see the Galapagos Islands. What this catamaran has revolutionized is its innovative structure that allows interior spaces to expand significantly compared to conventional designs. It is outfitted with spacious cabins possessing private balconies, as well as a comfortable lounge and ample relaxation areas. The huge sundeck features the Jacuzzi, the perfect spot for dolphin- and whale-watching, or for simply unwinding and soaking up the sun between island excursions. Moreover, it is one of the fastest ships and its guarantees comfort, silence and stability.   Enjoy dining in the ship’s elegant restaurant, or dine al fresco on the deck while taking in the views of the islands, before ordering a drink at the bar just in time for sunset. And in the evening, there’s no better place for stargazing.   On the Petrel, the emphasis is placed on the remarkable natural history of the Galapagos Islands, selecting naturalist land-tour guides who are knowledgeable of the archipelago's biology and ecology, in addition to having excellent language skills and client reviews.   So get on board the Petrel! Luxury here isn’t about ostentation; rather, it's attached to what moves us: authentic experiences. Engage in a personal, intimate and significant encounter with nature. Take part in an inspiring journey in which your understanding of life will literally change. Be inspired and discover YOUR own enchanting islands with the Petrel.
