The Alya Catamaran is the ideal choice for those who want to explore the Galapagos Islands in true comfort.
This state-of-the-art boat which is as smooth to sail as it is luxurious to sleep in, with light and airy cabins spread across two decks, as well as a string of fantastic dining and leisure facilities. The library and media centre provides an endless distraction, while the restaurant serves delicious meals – all included in your Alya package. There’s also a sun deck with loungers and a Jacuzzi; the perfect place to unwind in while keeping an eye out for signs of the abundant wildlife around you.
The naturalist tours are of course the highlight of any cruise with Alya, and the bilingual, certified naturalist guide is an expert in their field, so whether you’re hiking, kayaking or snorkelling, they’ll be on-hand to point out the incredible array of flora and fauna which flourishes here in the Galapagos.
The Alya itineraries range from four to eight days, with various options to choose from. The four-day trip takes you around San Cristobal Island and Espanola, while the five-day tour explores the islands further west including Santa Cruz, Santiago and Genovesa. One of the eight-day tours takes you to all these destinations, while the alternative incorporates smaller islands like Rabida and Chinese Hat; ask our Galapagos Travel Specialist for more information to find out which Alya itinerary would suit you best.
Nine cabins. There are four cabins in the upper deck, and five in the main deck, with eight out of nine featuring private balconies. They are light and spacious, with a splash of turquoise set against neutral colour palettes. Guests can enjoy mod-cons like air conditioning, hot water in the en suite bathrooms, hairdryers, safety deposit boxes and speakers. Best of all are the large windows, so you can gaze outside and watch the world of the Galapagos go by from the comfort of your cabin.
