M/S Samba

The Latin America Travel Company Rating:  ★ ★ ★


The Samba is a dutch built steel hulled motor yacht with a stabilizing sail and teak wood decks. Originally designed in 1966 as a private yacht, she has been specially converted into a cruise boat for sailing in the Galapagos. The Samba is a particularly environmentally friendly boat due to her incredibly efficient engines that only require 6 gallons of diesel per hour. There are two main outside areas located on the upper deck and main deck.

These spaces are used for dining, relaxing, sunbathing or watching wildlife and include protection from the sun. Inside there is a dining and lounge area which is also used for lectures conducted by the professional on board guide. Six of the seven cabins are located on the lower deck and these all have air conditioning. Cabin seven is an exterior cabin located on the upper deck. All cabins have private bathrooms and hot water showers. A small bar serves a variety of drinks throughout the cruise and there is a mini library and TV.
