The Coral I and the Coral II are a unique combination of two expedition yachts that cruise together through the Galapagos Islands. Though the ships are sisters and not twins, the 131-foot, 18-cabin Coral I and the 113-foot, 11-cabin Coral II are equally elegant and offer near-identical facilities. A delightful surprise awaits you in Galapagos when you find out which ship is destined to be your home during your dream vacation.
Once aboard, indulge in the one-of-a-kind experience that only a pair of vessels can provide. You will have all the personalized service of a small, boutique ship while also meeting a larger group of like-minded travelers during excursions.
Life Aboard The Coral I & II
As one of 36 guests on the Coral I or 20 on the Coral II, you will be welcomed aboard with a cocktail courtesy of the Captain. Such a warm greeting is sure to set the tone for the days ahead. Before you set sail, head to the Dolphin Observation Deck to catch your first glimpses of sea life as you start your adventure. Go to your comfortable, well-appointed stateroom to change into your swimwear before hopping into the Jacuzzi on the Earth Deck.
It’s the perfect way to unwind, beverage in hand, while watching as the boat approaches your first stop. There are plenty of spots to relax and explore back inside, including a lounge, library, and boutique. In the dining room, you’ll enjoy international and Ecuadorian cuisine created by the ship’s chef.
But, your favorite meal will likely be the BBQ served on the Moon Deck. Served at sunset with the Enchanted Islands as a backdrop, this casual meal will be a highlight of your Coral I and II Galapagos cruise. When you return to your stateroom, you will be delighted to find it tidied again, after thrice daily housekeeping service.
Excursions From Your Coral I And Coral II Galapagos Cruise
Select from four separate itineraries, two of which feature four-day routes and the others 5-day schedules. Each itinerary offers unique excursions and exploration opportunities, but they will all give you a front-row seat to some of the most exciting wildlife this planet has to offer. During a four-day cruise of the eastern islands, walk across layers of lava on North Seymour Island to see colonies of blue-footed boobies.
The four-day cruise along the north-central islands takes you to Rabida Island’s red-sand beaches, where you will see colonies of sea lions. Cruise the western islands on a five-day trip visit to see the principal nesting spot of sea turtles in the Galapagos on Santa Cruz Island. Opt for the five-day trip around the southern islands, and you will be treated to a hike near a mangrove forest to a black lagoon of flamingoes.
Add Scuba Diving To Your Adventure
Diving in the Galapagos Islands is a bucket-list item for most scuba enthusiasts. The exclusive two-boat cruising system of the Coral I and II allows you to add some time under the sea to your itinerary. Just swap a scheduled excursion for a scuba diving outing, and you will have the chance to swim in the realm of hammerheads, whale sharks, and turtles.
The Galapagos Islands are a magnet for animal lovers, and a cruise aboard the Coral I and II is a comfortable, stylish way to make the most of your time in the region.
