Athala II

For those looking for a Galapagos adventure cruise in style, the 16-passenger Athala II provides a cozy small yacht atmosphere, comfortable accommodations, personalized service, a dedicated cruise director, and more.

This Motor Catamaran was specifically designed and built to cruise the Islands providing comfort and excellent stability for those looking for a Galapagos adventure cruise in style.

The Athala II offers spacious and comfortable, fully-air conditioned accommodations and personalized attention like only Athala's cruise directors can offer. She is equipped with 8 double staterooms of which 4 have private balconies and are located on the main deck and 4 located on the upper deck; all the staterooms offer large picture windows and either queen or twin bed configurations.

The Athala II's upper deck features a bar and a beautiful open area for relaxation and al fresco dining. The sundeck is great for whale and dolphin watching or to simply relax in the Jacuzzi. In the evenings there is no better place for star gazing. The dining area can be found on the main deck, along with a really comfortable lounge. All meals are served as a buffet style with all soft drinks included.

The naturalist guide will give nightly lectures about the islands, in addition to briefings on the next day’s activities. According to National Park regulations, kayaking is only permitted at certain sites with a maximum number of 8 passengers in 4 double kayaks. Kayaking takes place before or after island excursions. Most of the snorkeling activities take place before or after island excursions, so that you will not miss the hikes. It is an optional activity while the rest of the passengers stay on board or on the beach. If you would like to learn about the equatorial night skies, your guide will be happy to join you for stargazing on the Sun Deck (December to April). Whale watching is seasonal and best experienced while the humboldt current reaches the Galapagos. Although sightings are not guaranteed, with a keen eye and some luck you may see some whales during your cruise, especially between June and September.
