With her gold hull and full length windows and private balconies, Elite is a distinctive sight as she cruises around the Galapagos Islands. She carries sixteen passengers in style and comfort, with spacious indoor and outdoor social areas.

Elite is a sleek, modern catamaran combining the twin attributes of stability and luxury. Days are spent among the wildlife of the famed Galapagos Islands with your expert naturalist guide. Walks, swimming, snorkelling, paddleboarding and exploring by glass-bottom kayaks ensure plenty of variety with no two days the same.

On board you have a choice of relaxation areas. The large open plan lounge-dining room spans the width of the vessel with windows on both sides, and is used for naturalist talks and presentations as well as private downtime. There’s outdoor deck space on the upper deck plus the superb skydeck with its large sofa, daybeds and jacuzzi as well as a covered sitting-dining area and bar.    

Suites are spacious and provide every comfort. Air conditioned, they remain cool on the warmest of days, and have ample storage space and an en-suite shower room. Each suite has floor-to-ceiling windows and a sliding glass door, which flood the room with natural daylight. Outside you have your own balcony where you can sit and watch the passing scenery.
