La Pinta

The Galapagos Islands are special and you want a special yacht in which to explore these islands, a ‘living laboratory of evolution’.

Yacht La Pinta is the result of the company’s four decades of experience in the Galápagos: it’s a distillation of the wish lists generated by captains, expedition leaders, hotel managers and customers over our company’s four decades of experience in the archipelago.

With its week-long itinerary, it promises a complete immersion in the unique environment of the Galapagos Islands, with enriching wildlife encounters accompanied by expert guides complemented by faultless service, delicious cuisine and plenty of comfort on board. Their staff embraces a spirit of adventure, while ensuring comfort and safety at all times. The yacht boasts among the largest cabins of any Galápagos vessel with floor-to-ceiling windows in all cabins. Its social areas have almost permanent visual contact with the islands through panoramic windows, while its outside deck areas are also wonderful havens for relaxation, including an observation deck towards the bow. La Pinta is the ideal yacht for families travelling together, with many connecting cabins, and beds that can be joined or separated, depending on guests’ wishes. La Pinta Yacht is operated by the longest-established travel company in Ecuador and in the Galapagos Islands.
