In the company of no more than 15 other guests, explore the islands and their unqiue wildlife with an accredited naturalist guide whilst enjoying outstanding onboard amenities and fine service from the Ecuadorian crew.
This itinerary offers explorers the opportunity to have an overview of the volcanic formations, lava flows and lava cones in order to understand part of the origin of the Galápagos Islands. During this expedition not only will you see lunar-like craters and lava fields, but also you will be mesmerised by sharks, blue footed boobies and many endemic species as well as astonishing landscapes.

Galapagos Sea Star Journey
Operated by: Latin Trails
The Galapagos Sea Star Journey is a luxurious modern ship, and one of the finest new ships to enter service in the Galápagos Islands in recent years. Originally built as the Grand Odyssey in 2011, in 2015 she underwent an extensive interior renovation and also saw the installation of new, state-of-the-art engines which produce less noise, aid smoother navigation, and offer a speed improvement of 2 knots whilst delivering better fuel efficiency. Accommodating a maximum of just 16 guests in eight spacious suites, expeditioners will be well looked after by a crew of 11, including a fully-accredited naturalist/guide. Her spacious sun deck, featuring two jacuzzis, a number of day beds and sun loungers and a BBQ, is one of the largest sun decks in the archipelago.
