La Pinta is the perfect choice if you are looking to enjoy the beauty of the Galapagos Islands in comfort.

Named after one of the archipelago's islands, the 209-foot expedition yacht La Pinta has been built to extremely high standards. She combines the space and sophistication of a larger ship with the intimacy and personal service of a small vessel, providing discerning travellers the ultimate expedition adventure.

La Pinta carries 48 passengers in spacious deluxe outside-facing cabins, each with air-conditioning and en-suite facilities. All cabins are on the same deck and some cabins can be interconnected for the convenience of families. There are 20 ‘luxury’ cabins, which are 16.4m2 and 4 ‘luxury plus’ cabins, which are slightly larger at 23m2 and have the addition of a sitting area and sofa.

Facilities on board include a saloon/bar, well-stocked library, infirmary, shop, dining room, spacious deck areas and a balcony lookout area - an ideal spot for the captain's call of 'whale!'

Four naturalist guides lead daily activities, which vary from snorkelling, kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, zodiac and glass-bottom boat trips and island excursions.

  • I do not think that we have ever had so much care and attention from a travel company, which just goes to show that (in a good way), you do get what you pay for.
