Santa Cruz II

GENERAL DESCRIPTION

Known by many as “The Champion of the Galapagos”, Santa Cruz II has become a world-famous leader in sustainability efforts. Celebrated by many for her low guest-to-guide ratio, her sleek design and for her amazing dedication to sustainability. Fitting a max total of 90 guests in 50 comfortable cabins across her three decks, guests can choose from luxuriously appointed single, double and triple cabins and are guaranteed the full attention of her highly competent and experienced naturalist guides, all lead by expedition leaders who are world-famous as some of the most talented and qualified experts in the entire archipelago.

A cruise ship is an ideal way to explore the Galapagos. The highly advanced Santa Cruz II  is an Expedition Vessel specifically designed to operate in isolated regions, making it the perfect fit for exploring the remote Galapagos Islands. Our state-of-the-art design affords the perfect infrastructure for exploration. Discover the Galapagos the same way the early explorers did, with no other boats in sight! We guarantee exclusive access to the islands so you’ll always feel like the visitor site is there just for you. Small groups – average just 12 guests or fewer per guide- are guaranteed and all the required equipment is ready and set for your convenience. In case of the unlikely event of an emergency, our onboard Medical Officer is available on site, 24 hours a day.
