Since June 2019, The Elite, a luxurious Motor Catamaran offers Galapagos expeditions. Rita Freire Jr., a passionate female entrepreneur originally from Puerto Baquerizo Moreno in San Cristobal Island, created the Elite catamaran. She comes from a hospitality family with a tradition of providing high-end services to tourists in the Galapagos Islands. Elite was built specifically to redefine class, and enhance the travel experience of its Galapagos Cruise guests. This catamaran ensures safe and steady navigation throughout the archipelago. The catamaran's sleek, forward-looking design and marine architecture provide more space, particularly in the social areas. This allows for more enjoyment onboard, both at sea and between islands. The interior lounge has a 180-degree view and is furnished with furniture inspired by the lava formations on the islands. Galapagos Elite is equipped with the latest navigational computers and safety gear. Galapagos' luxury experiences are not complete without safety and reliability.
Staff are well known in the industry as perfectionists when it comes planning and executing luxury cruises, and for providing personalized service to guests to ensure a pleasant journey on the islands. Elite's catamaran serves delicious cuisine, including Ecuadorian dishes and other international fare. The crew is friendly and will serve you with a smile.
All of the luxurious suites have a private balcony and beds that can be converted to twin or double. You can be assured that only the finest shampoos, soaps and creams are used. The 16-guest Elite offers world-class linens made of 300+ thread count cotton, as well as a lounge and plenty of closet space.
The National Park regulations were followed when creating the itineraries to ensure that the visitors could enjoy the best comfort and also explore some of the most incredible natural sights in the Archipelago. They will be accompanied by bilingual, experienced guides who can make every trip a true adventure. The archipelago offers a variety of 3, 4 or 7 night Galapagos Cruises that explore the islands in the east, north or west. Let's get on board this amazing Catamaran and enjoy an unforgettable experience!
