Sea Star Journey: Enjoying Intimacy and Personalized Service

A 16-passenger luxury-class cruiser, the Sea Star Journey motor yacht* was launched in 2011, offering the best in Galapagos Islands tours. Designed especially for small groups of families and friends — and for couples, of course, as the ship is a popular choice for many honeymooners in the Galapagos Islands — the ship offers both privacy and comfort, thus fulfilling the highest expectations of discerning travelers of their Galapagos cruise. At the same time, the ship’s operator takes steps to reduce visitor impact on the fragile Galapagos Islands ecosystem.

 

Accurately described as a “boutique yacht,” that concept is manifested in the ship’s small yet generous, stylish and serviceable features. Sea Star Journey motor yacht has the capacity to accommodate 16 guests in seven (7) spacious Galapagos “Matrimonial Suites” (269 sq. ft.) and one (1) Odyssey Suite (377 sq. ft.). (For families and groups of friends, some of these suites are connected.) All of these quarters are equipped with panoramic windows that incorporate the surrounding landscape into the privacy of your cabin. Each cabin also includes its own private bathroom, hot/cold water, air conditioning with independent controls, a mini-bar and a TV.

 

In the common areas, the yacht offers a large solarium with shaded and uncovered areas, two Jacuzzis, and comfortable sun loungers. Social areas include a lounge area, a mini library, a video library and a play zone for kids (during family departures).

 

Local and international dishes designed specially by the Sea Star’s chef are served in the cozy atmosphere of the ship’s dining room.  In addition to that cuisine and the ship’s 10-member crew, the Sea Star Journey motor yacht has a bilingual naturalist guide who leads passengers on daily excursions onto the islands. This means a cruise on board the Sea Star Journey will allow visitors to explore both land wildlife and the marine fauna of the Galapagos archipelago. Snorkeling equipment and kayaks are available for no extra charge. The Sea Star Journey’s great Galapagos cruise itineraries include the main nature and wildlife highlights the Galapagos Islands have to offer. You can hike up the Sierra Negra Volcano, kayak into a mangrove forest, witness the moment that a sea turtle nests, or snorkel with tiny Galapagos penguins. As you beach-comb along the soft white-sand beach of Floreana Island, you’ll likely find yourself imagining how pirates landed on these shores. These and a host of other activities are in store for you.

 

With so many options and varieties of cruises, it’s difficult to single out the “best” cruise in the Galapagos. Still, the Sea Star Journey definitely stands out as one of the top choices, even among luxury-class yachts. So inquire now …tell us a bit about yourself and what you’re looking for. We can help single out the cruise best suited for you.

“The Galapagos Islands was a dream trip for me. Surtrek expertly guided me to a boat expedition, activities and experiences that created the adventure I wanted. Every day was special, as we snorkeled with sea lions, sea turtles and penguins, hiked and lear”Kris Dreessen
