Cachalote Sailor

Cachalote Explorer

GENERAL DESCRIPTION

We are thrilled to announce the addition of the Cachalote Explorer!
Built in 1988 in Vancouver, Canada, this large and spacious motor vessel was converted into a passenger vessel in the early 2000’s. The Galapagos cruise ship will have 8 cabins (16 pax.) each with their own private bathroom equipped with Hot and Cold-water shower, air-conditioned throughout, and a large salon/dining area with multiple large deck areas for relaxing, eating and socializing.

This charming and comfortable Tourist Class yacht was built for the rough waters of the Canadian West Coast, so it will provide a stable, smooth and relaxing ride while on your beautiful Galapagos small ship tour.
