The Archipel I is a classic Galapagos boat having started sailing in 2002. Over the years it has been continually refurbished with smart, stylish and up to date décor. It is a motor catamaran with double hulls and wide decks ensuring the best possible stability. There are just 8 cabins for 16 passengers and all the cabins are located above the waterline on the main deck. This means each cabin has two ocean view windows.

The Archipel I represents great value for money with all cabins coming with ocean views and a huge sun deck complete with a covered area

The cabins are quite cosy, but there is ample storage space plus the essential comforts of your own private bathroom and air conditioning. The sun deck is where most of your time will be spent where there are loungers and a covered area for alfresco eating. Inside there is a large, open plan bar and dining area including a lounge. Other facilities include a TV with DVDs, a small library and board games. A dedicated naturalist guide is joined on board by an experienced crew to ensure you have the best possible experience of the Galapagos.
