Think up-close-and-personal wildlife exploration means sacrificing comfort? The Sea Star yacht proves that contemporary style, luxury, and privacy go hand-in-hand with Galapagos cruising. This 137-foot yacht invites 16 passengers to indulge in upscale amenities, spacious interiors, and ample outdoor spaces while enjoying itineraries of four to 10 nights.
Life Aboard The Sea Star Yacht
During your time on the Sea Star yacht, you may call one of the eight contemporary suites home, from a choice of three categories. There are three Galapagos and four Balcony Suites, all 270-square-foot in size, with the Galapagos Suites being located on the Upper Deck and having the added benefit of being interconnectable, and the Balcony Suites being located on the Main Deck and offering personal balcony areas. For that a bit of extra luxury, opt for the larger 375- square-foot Sea Star Suite on the Upper Deck.
As lovely as the suites are, you will instantly be drawn to the ship’s social areas, including the Sun Deck. There, sun lovers can laze on lounge chairs or soak in a Jacuzzi. Head to the shaded end of the Sun Deck, with an additional Jacuzzi, for some fun away from the sun. Parents and children alike will appreciate the play zone, which is available on family departures. To add to the fun, snorkeling equipment, and kayaks are available for your use. All this excitement is sure to work up an appetite, and the ship’s chef aims to please with local and international dishes served in the indoor dining area.
Excursions from your Sea Star Cruise Galapagos
Whether you are looking for a short cruise highlighting the most popular sites or a deep dive into all the Galapagos Islands have to offer, the Sea Star has an itinerary to suit. With cruises ranging from four to 10 nights, you can see as much as you please. The shortest 4-night cruises, which sail from Sunday to Thursday, feature a stop at Darwin’s Bay, where bird watchers will delight in the opportunity to see red footed-boobies and lava gulls. The most intense 10-night Thursday to Sunday cruises stop at the bulk of the islands in the region and offer a chance to observe sharks in the crystal clear waters off Gardner Bay at Española Island and to snorkel with the local sea lion population. Each of the six itineraries offers ample dingy rides, swimming, hiking, and unique wildlife encounters.
An award-winning cruise aboard the Sea Star Yacht
The Sea Star was honored by the World Travel Awards with the title of “South America’s Best Leading Boutique Cruise” for three straight years, thanks to high standards for quality and the dedication of the ship’s crew. Aboard the Sea Star, you will enjoy warm welcomes, constant innovation, and personalized service from the moment you set foot on the boat.
Whether you are a family hoping to show your little ones the magic of the Galapagos, a wildlife lover, a bird watcher, or a couple seeking new adventures, the Sea Star yacht offers a variety of amenities and options to please any traveler.
