Ocean Spray Catamaran

Ocean Spray Catamaran Cruise

From $4,375.00

The Galapagos Ocean Spray catamaran is one of the most spacious and comfortable luxury catamarans offering Galapagos island cruises, she is returning from an extensive dry dock and redesign in January 2021. This wonderful liveaboard has a vivid and rich cruise itinerary that was designed with authorization by the Galapagos Park authority and direct insights from the Charles Darwin station to delight its VIP customers. It has one of the most versatile offers with options to reach the different corners of the archipelago on navigational loops that last 3, 4, 5 and 7 nights visiting the northern, southern and western islands. Galapagos cruising programs start and end at both Santa Cruz Island and San Cristobal island allowing guests to arrive at either Baltra or Puerto Baquerizo Moreno airports. 

Each day on an ocean spray galapagos cruise is planned with a balance of hiking on wildlife trails allowing our guests to spot the giant tortoise, nesting nazca boobies, the orange land iguana alongside the predatorial Galapagos hawk and pirate frigate birds. The impressive marine life can be explored on a well planned dinghy ride, snorkeling outings, sea kayaking (certain visitor sites only) with possibilities to swim with tropical fish, sea turtles, the ocassional reef shark and underwater feeding iguanas.

A key element to a brilliantly orchestrated wildlife vacation is the bilingual Galapagos National Park guide, who will give you company during each tour, stopping at each point of interest to explain the intrincacies of the blue footed boobies mating dance or the interesting feeding habits of marine iguanas. The guide makes sure no detail is overlooked, ensuring you a great vacation experience and takes care that all park rules are respected during your luxury Galapagos cruise.

Being a catamaran the Ocean Spray has large dining areas, a plunge bath, a huge sundeck, and everything a visitor may need on a wildlife vacation. Meal times are a delight with local delicacies and grandma recipes from Ecuador, the fresh island seafood and international classics. The chef can cater to special dietary needs and ensure everyone has their palate taken care of. 

What gives an edge to the Ocean Spray is the attention to detail in linens, toiletries and other amenities. No lack of comfort here. Visiting remote and pristine areas away from civilization on activity packed days should be rewarded with a proper place to rest and replenish for another day full of adventure. Lavish and stylish, the cruise is articulately crafted with a fine eye for detail. It has spacious and esthetically furnished cabins, with a private balcony each. Guests can soak in the sunsets from the comfort of their cabin.
