Cruise the wildlife haven of the Galapagos Islands onboard the modern and impressive Coral I.
At 40m in length and with space for up to 36 passengers on board, Coral I is ideal for guests looking for an intimate cruise, but offering the stability and privacy of a larger boat.
There are 18 cabins on board, split between three decks. The highest category are the Junior Cabins, which are found on the Sky and Earth decks. They have double beds (and some can be setup with an additional single bed - ideal for families) and picture windows. The standard and standard-plus cabins are on the Sea deck and have portholes rather than windows.
Each cabin features handsome wood decoration, along with air-conditioning, a private bathroom, safe deposit box, telephone, and your choice of background music.
Additionally, Coral I has plenty of room to relax including two lounges, a bar, dining room and sundeck (complete with Jacuzzi).
Coral I really stands out because of its excellent service and high guide to passenger ratio. With a cruise director and three naturalist guides on board, group sizes for excursions are always small. Snorkelling, panga rides, nature trails and kayaking are all included and group sizes are smaller than the standard 1 guide per 16 passengers (which is common for most boats in the Galapagos).
Coral I cruises around the Galapagos with its slightly smaller sister ship Coral II. It is an almost identical style and layout, but only has capacity for 20 guests and has two naturalist guides on board.
