Originally built in 1988 in Vancouver, Canada, the Cachalote is a large and spacious motor yacht that was converted into a passenger vessel in the early 2000s. It can accommodate 16 passengers in 8 air-conditioned cabins, each with their own private bathroom equipped with hot & cold water shower,. The Cachalote Explorer has a large salon & dining area with multiple large deck areas for relaxing, eating and socializing.
This charming and comfortable First-Class yacht was built for the rough waters of the Canadian West Coast, so it will provide a stable, smooth and relaxing ride while on your Galapagos small ship tour.
The Cachalote Explorer offers the option of 6, 8 and 15 day Galapagos Islands small boat cruise itineraries that visit selected sites which are approved by the Galapagos National Park; each of these is unique, rich and varied and offer the opportunity to experience Galapagos up close and personal with a small group led by a highly experienced naturalist guide. The two 8 day itineraries are able to be combined to form a 15-day itinerary which we highly recommend for those travelers that would like to have a complete, in-depth Galapagos Islands small boat cruise.
