Cormorant I

Perfect for honeymoons, couples, or groups of friends, the luxury catamaran Cormorant is a real gem.

Overview

The Cormorant I, which takes its name from one of the most famous bird species in the Galapagos Islands, is a 108-foot luxury catamaran welcoming up to 16 guests. With itineraries of four, five, and eight days, a Cormorant catamaran cruise is a comfortably elegant way to explore the archipelago’s most desirable sites.

Life Aboard The Cormorant I

With a navy hull, blue and white interior décor, and glossy wood tones, the Cormorant I is the quintessential luxury yacht. Imagine being rocked to sleep by gentle waves in one of eight staterooms and then waking up to sip coffee on your private balcony. The day only gets better from there. When you are ready for a little fun in the sun, head to the panoramic deck for a dip in the Jacuzzi. Don’t forget to pick up a drink at the outdoor bar on the way!

Later, make your way to the air-conditioned lounge to read a book from the library, stopping, of course, for a drink from the indoor bar. The big question of the day is, will dinner be in the indoor dining room or the alfresco table on the deck? Either way, it will be an elegant meal prepared by the ship’s chef.

Excursions From Your Cormorant Cruise Galapagos

If you dream of seeing all the rare wildlife that makes up the Galapagos Islands ecosystem, the Cormorant’s itineraries are just what you want. The ship offers four unique itineraries for a range that few boats in the area can match.

On the four-day route, a stop to kayak or snorkel off Kicker Rock off San Cristobal Island is a chance to see hammerhead sharks, blue-footed boobies, and sea turtles. During the five-day cruise, take a hike on South Plaza Island to see one of the largest colonies of sea lions as well as red and yellow iguanas.

While the shorter cruises are schedule-friendly ways to get a taste of the area, two different eight-day routes provide a deep dive into the Galapagos Islands. The eight-day “A” cruise offers a rare chance to visit the David Rodriguez Breeding Center, where you can see newborn sea turtles before they are released into the wild. On the “B” route, stop at Elizabeth Bay on Isabela Island, where you can hike in a Mangrove forest and see penguins on the rocky inlets.

Caring For The Galapagos

Once you see all the interesting animals and sea creatures in the Galapagos Islands, you will undoubtedly have a newfound passion for preserving the ecosystem. Happily, the Cormorant catamaran Galapagos has this well in hand. The boat, amenities, and itineraries are all designed to reduce the environmental impact of tourism. A Galapagos National Park Certified Guide leads every excursion. These expert trains have months of training under their belt and pros at leading activities that are equally engaging, educational, and safe for the environment. More luxuriously, the staterooms are stocked with biodegradable L’Occitane products. That might be the most pampering way to protect the environment ever.

Whether you are an avid boater or new to yachting, the Cormorant catamaran Galapagos will let you feel at ease on the sea. With two hulls for added stability, the catamaran design makes this a smooth, comfortable ship that is ideal for hopping between the Galapagos Islands.

Post Office Bay, Baroness Viewing Point, Coromorant Point & Champion Islet

AM: In the 18th-century whalers passing through the islands placed a wooden barrel on Floreana Island for use as an unofficial mailbox. The tradition continues today as visitors leave addressed postcards in the barrel and sort through left mail to deliver at home. 

Baroness Viewpoint is a fantastic place to absorb the environment of the Galapagos. Once inhabited by an indulgent baroness and her three lovers, the history of this island is intriguing. The legends about this baroness are associated with a fascinating murder mystery. There are easy trails in this area for exploring the flora and fauna of Floreana.

PM: This site hosts a large flamingo lagoon where other birds such as common stilts and white-cheeked pintails can also be seen. The “Green Beach” here is named due to its green color, which comes from a high percentage of olivine crystals in the sand, and the “Four Sand Beach” composed of white coral.

Champion Islet, named after the whaler Andrew Champion, is a small island located just offshore Floreana Island in the southern part of the Archipelago. Considered one of the most beautiful places on Galapagos for all snorkeling and diving fans and an excellent opportunity for dolphin watching.

Its turquoise, crystalline waters are inhabited by white-tip reef sharks, Galapagos penguins, marine turtles, and sea lions. One of its beaches surrounded by mangroves is one of the few sites where marine iguanas can reproduce successfully.

Visit the Sierra Negra Volcano, which is the largest basaltic caldera in the Galapagos with a diameter of 6.2 miles (10 km).

The north side of the caldera provides evidence of its most recent volcanic activity in 2005.

PM: The Wetlands of Isabela Island are located just outside of Puerto Villamil. They consist of lagoons, swamps, and mangroves and are home to a variety of unique bird species such as common stilts, whimbrels, white-cheeked pintails, and gallinules. The Wetlands can be visited on foot via a path through the swamps.

Arnaldo Tupiza Breeding Center is located about one mile (1.5 km) from Puerto Villamil.

Moreno Point & Elizabeth Bay

AM: Moreno Point is located southwest of Elizabeth Bay. Here a dry landing onto what was once owing lava is possible. The lava has left craters in its wake which formed crystal tide pools. By looking into the pools, you can peer into another world as the marine life drifts by your window. In the brackish pools of this area, you may see pink flamingos, white-cheeked pintails, and common gallinules. If you look carefully into the pools, you may see white-tip reef sharks and some sea turtles.

PM: Elizabeth Bay is located on the east coast of Isabela Island. The bay contains many islets, which can be visited by dinghy. Penguins and blue-footed boobies can be spotted on the rocky islets. With an abundance of marine life and clear water, the area is perfect for snorkeling and viewing schools of colorful fish, sea lions, and perhaps even sharks.

Egas Port, Espumilla Beach & Buccaneer Cove

AM: Egas Port, also known as James Bay, on Santiago Island is home to the curious Galapagos hawks and quick-footed Galapagos lava lizards.

PM: In Espumilla Beach marine iguanas lounge and the Sally Lightfoot crabs attract the hunting herons performing the dance of predator and prey right before your eyes. Snorkeling is highly recommended as you could come face to face with an octopus, moray eel, shark, and a variety of other species of tropical fish.

Buccaneer Cove is a testament to the fact that Santiago Island was once a refuge for British buccaneers. These pirates would anchor in the protected bay to make repairs and stock up on tortoise meat among other things. The steep cliffs, where hundreds of seabirds perch in front of the dark red sand beach, is a magnificent sight.

Chinese Hat Islet & Dragon Hill

AM: This small islet is located near the southeast coast of Santiago Island. Its name comes from the distinct shape of the islet’s summit. This small islet is a great location to view many geological formations such as lava tunnels and lava flows. Some of the lava flows were formed underwater and subsequently raised above sea level. The presence of coral heads on the lava flow indicates this phenomenon.

PM: The visitors’ site at Dragon Hill is located in northwestern Santa Cruz Island and consists of a 1,600 m long trail that runs through three different environments. The beach is very rocky. At high tide, it’s a nice place for snorkeling. At this visiting site, you can find vegetation of the typical intertidal zone and dry zone.
