A member of the renowned Haugan fleet which operates within the Galapagos National Park, The M/C Cormorant catamaran is a fantastic option for exploring the archipelago, providing a range of itineraries lasting from 4-15 days with wildlife spotting opportunities galore and plenty of chances to get up close and personal with the islands' resident creatures.
With just eight cabins accommodating up to 16 passengers, the Cormorant is a great option for those who enjoy a little more privacy and space; with fewer guests on board, the guides and crew can really offer a more personalized service than on some of the larger vessels. Cabins are spacious and each come with a private balcony, perfect for a relaxing evening drink whilst enjoying views out over the Pacific.
Communal areas include the sun-deck, complete with jacuzzi and sun loungers for ultimate relaxation, a large bar area and a dining room with adjoining lounge and library where you can brush up on your knowledge of Galapagos wildlife or the fascinating volcanic landscapes which define this once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Kayaks, snorkeling gear and wetsuits are available on board for guests to use - take to the waters and paddle or swim past whale sharks and marine iguanas, keeping your eyes peeled for sea turtles, blue footed boobies, white-tipped sharks and more.
There are two double suites measuring 38sqm and two double staterooms measuring 24sqm on the main deck. The Upper deck houses four double connected cabins making these the perfect choice for families, each measuring 24sqm. All cabins include a private balcony (included in the sizes listed).
Location & Directions
The Galapagos archipelago consists of 19 volcanic islands and 40 islets, 600 miles off the coast of Ecuador.
When to go
There's never a bad time to visit the Galapagos. The peak season lasts from mid-June through early September and from mid-December through mid-January. The national park limits the number of visitors to each island and coordinates each ship's itinerary, so the Galapagos will never feel like Disney World. But if you visit in the summer, you are less likely to feel a sense of solitude and isolation. From December through to May the water and the air are warmer, but this is the rainy season. It drizzles almost daily for a short period of time. Ironically, this is also the sunniest time of year.
June through November, the Humboldt Current makes it way up to the Galapagos from the southern end of South America. The current brings cold water and cold weather, but it also brings water rich in nutrients and plankton, which attracts fish and birds. During this season there always seem to be clouds in the air, but it rarely rains. It's also quite windy, and the seas tend to be rougher.
