Overview

Board the Nemo II and begin a journey of discovery as you sail through the volcanic archipelago of Ecuador’s Galapagos Islands. This graceful and twin-hulled vessel pairs the stability of a catamaran with the grace of a sail boat. Choose from a selection of itineraries and with a maximum of just 12 passengers, you can look forward to an intimate trip. Every day will offer informative guided tours of the islands and endless opportunities to spot the native wildlife including dolphins, turtles, penguins, seals and the startling Blue-footed Booby.

The only ship of its kind in the Galapagos Islands, the Nemo II offers a selection of journeys of 8 days which depart on Sundays with a choice of itineraries:

The northern itinerary visits Santa Cruz and Charles Darwin Station, Isabela, Fernandina, Rabida Island, Santiago, Genovesa and Daphne Island before returning to Baltra. The southern itinerary visits Santa Cruz, Santa Fe, San Cristobal, Espanola, Floreana and Santiago before returning to Baltra.

All meals will be served in the dining room and you will also have plenty of time to relax in the lounge and on the sundeck. The well-designed living spaces and small size of this beautiful catamaran make it a great choice for cruising in the Galapagos whilst offering exceptional stability and service.

Info

The Galapagos Islands are a year-round destination thanks to their equatorial location. In general, June to December is generally called the ‘dry season’ which is known for its blue skies and mid-day showers. During this season, sea mammals and land birds are most active. December to May is considered the ‘warm season’, when the climate is more tropical with daily rain and cloudier skies and the water temperature is warmer for swimming and snorkelling. Island birds are especially active in this season. No matter what time of year you, great wildlife encounters are still guaranteed.
