La Pinta is a stunning ship, built on the requests of captains, expedition leaders, hotel managers, and guests over many years. A sophisticated, upscale travel experience that combines modern design, spacious rooms, and gourmet cuisine with top adventure.

The ship offers a wide variety of aquatic activities including snorkeling (wet suits included), kayaking and a glass-bottom boat.  On-board, guests can enjoy relaxing on the large terrace, observation deck, Jacuzzi, gym and dining areas serving delicious food. Each night guests can visit the lounge for nightly briefings about the next day’s activities.

Yacht La Pinta has ample cabins, some of the largest of any Galapagos expedition vessel and features floor-to-ceiling oversized panoramic windows in all cabins for the best views of the islands and stylish bathrooms.
