Cruise the Galapagos Islands in style aboard the comfortable and spacious motor yacht, The Astrea (formerly the Pinguino Explorer).   Our cruises are ideal for travelers who are enthusiastic about wildlife and enjoy being active. This yacht offers an authentic, intimate and adventurous experience in the Galapagos Islands while providing the guests a first class service. Whilst most of the day time is spent exploring the islands and snorkeling in this National Park and Marine Reserve, there is also time to relax on deck while the boat cruises from one visitor site to the next.

The Astrea accommodates 16 passengers in her 8 cabins: four upper deck / 1 main deck / 3 lower deck, each with their own private bathrooms with hot/cold water showers. There is plenty of room to relax and admire the views on three separate deck spaces.  

While cruising through the Galapagos islands The Astrea’s guests have the opportunity to observe unique and abundant wildlife, walk along unusual volcanic terrain, snorkel with sea lions and marine turtles, and spot dolphins and whales from deck. Come, relax and have fun!

Astrea Itineraries

The Astrea offers the option of 4 day, 5 day and 8 day 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 can be combined to form a 15-day itinerary which we highly recommend for those travelers that would like to have a complete, in-depth experience of the Galapagos Islands.
