La Pinta

In one of the world’s greatest marine environments—the Galápagos— you can be sure your surroundings are front and center. La Pinta was designed with this in mind. Elegant and sophisticated, she’d steal the show in an environment less impressive. Instead, she’s the perfect complement to the great outdoors. Floor-to-ceiling windows in the lounge showcase the views. An outdoor Sky Bar and sun deck. And décor that nods to the nautical.

What started as a dream for captains, crew, and guests became reality when La Pinta made her renovated debut in 2007. Her Ecuadorian crew exudes friendliness, fueled by pride in their vessel, the Galápagos Islands, and a desire to share them both. Some good things are too good to keep secret. Geared up for adventure play and wildlife, the yacht also has a fun-to-explore natural history library.

In addition to an exercise room and outdoor Jacuzzi, onboard adventure equipment includes snorkeling equipment; wetsuits; sea kayaks; and a glass-bottom boat. The Sun Deck includes fitness equipment, and for a soak with a view, there is a hot tub on the aft of the deck.

Depending on the cabin, doubles or triples can be accommodated; four cabins can be interconnected for families or groups traveling together. Most beds can be separated as twins or joined as a queen. Common to all cabins: Floor-to-ceiling view windows, air conditioning, iPod/MP3/MP4 music docking stations, desk and chair, in-room safe deposit boxes; private bath with shower.
