Endemic Galapagos Catamaran Description
The M/C Endemic Galapagos Catamaran, starting operations in July 2018, is the product of 20 years of feedback from our Galapagos cruise guests, and the result is the most highly-evolved Galapagos yacht to date.
With excellent stability in the water and efficient catamaran design, it speeds you between islands and visitor spots maximizing your time enjoying the Galapagos Islands.
The Endemic features beautiful exterior lines and spacious interior quarters with high-end accommodation, fine dining, and classy social areas.
The Endemic's top deck is the place to hang out and features alfresco dining, a bar, a BBQ grill, jacuzzi, and shaded lounging area where you can watch the islands drift by.
The Endemic's Suites
The eight spacious and airy Golden Panoramic Suites feature air conditioning, private bath, and a private balcony yielding panoramic views from inside the suite due to its wall to wall sliding glass doors instead of walls facing outside. A small social area with a sofa-bed, desk, and closet round out your suite. Choose from one king size bed or two twin-size bed suite configurations.

WOW what a trip! Thank you
Buenos Dias Sofia!!
We returned from our trip on Monday. It was THE most wonderful trip ever- The Endemic is truly the most beautiful boat- the accommodations were so perfect. The suites were beautiful and large, and the boat had so many nice places to relax while cruising. We absolutely LOVED the crew- they were the most helpful, efficient, kind, friendly, smart people and we loved getting to know them. Our naturalist, Ruly, was the best! He not only was so knowledgable about the islands but he was so passionate about conservation in The Galapagos and truly has an immense love for these islands. He taught us so much throughout the week- he also did not rush us at all and we felt like we could really take our time and see everything at our own pace. We got to snorkel every day, which was a really fun surprise. I honestly cannot imagine having a better guide than Ruly. Please tell the operator of the boat that Ruly is truly a valuable asset to their company and they should hang onto him! Pablo, our cruise director was incredible too- he was always there when we needed him, always willing to help, very friendly, kept things running very smoothly, and was great to be around. We also loved Cesar- he always had a smile and worked very hard to make sure things went smoothly. He was always around when we needed something. Vicky was so sweet and not only kept our rooms spotless, but helped the others get everyone ready to snorkel and was always willing to help with a smile. The Captain and the guys behind the scenes that we didn’t see much kept everything with the beautiful Endemic running smoothly and made it seem so easy. We are very grateful to them. One thing that was a really wonderful surprise was the food- WOW- Jao and his sous-chef Daniel are Amazing chefs! The food was truly 5-star - every single meal. Everything was so fresh and unique and delicious- fresh sea bass, tuna, wonderful Ecuadorian dishes, fresh fruit, etc etc.= It was incredible (we all gained some weight for sure - jajajaja) Daniel (I think that was his name? He was so cute!) made these amazing sculptures out of food that were such a nice touch on the buffet table- so creative:) We loved having different dishes that we don’t get at home- the Ecuadorian food was delicious!
One night on the top deck, Jao and others had music playing and did a little bullfight dance, then got a couple of our people involved and it was really fun. We ate dinner on the top deck a few times when the cooks used the grills. That was really fun. Oh, also our Panga drivers were great! Francisco and Renato maneuvered the pangas perfectly and were very friendly and kind. They were very focused on safety and were a pleasure to ride with every day. All 16 of us agreed that there is NOTHING that we would change about this trip- it is perfect! The animals that we saw…… WOW….. what a treasure these islands are. We snorkeled with a Sea Lion, a penguin, sea turtles, a marine iguana, beautiful fish…. unbelievable the things we saw.
This was the trip of a lifetime- really, the best, most wonderful trip any of us have ever taken. Thank you so much for all of your help over the past year, you truly have been so wonderful to work with Sofia, and you made it so easy for me. I appreciate your kindness, your patience, your friendliness. You always answered my questions quickly- you do a great job- I hope I can work with you again someday on another trip.
THANK YOU SOFIA!
Thanks so much.

Dear Mrs. Pineda,
thank you for your kind email.
Yes, we arrived home safely and full of new experiences.
All was perfect..
We had a great time on the Endemic at the Galapagos and a beautiful time on Napo Lodge. The vacation was fantastic and
we will keep all that we have seen in our minds.
Thank you for everything.

Thank you so much for all of your help planning our Galapagos trip. It was amazing. The boat was perfect and I would recommend the Endemic and their crew to anyone. We also had an amazing naturalist guide that I can't say enough good things about.

So sorry for the very late reply. There was a lot to catch up on both personally and professionally after returning from our trip--which was no doubt, a trip of a lifetime!
I just wanted to thank you very much on behalf of my partner and I for assisting us and contributing to such an absolutely incredible experience. Memories we will truly never ever forget...The boat, the tour, the crew, the sights, the food, the accommodations, all were above and beyond any possible expectations we might have had. We would (and have done so already) without hesitation recommend both Columbus Travel and the Endemic to our family and friends.
Thanks again from the bottom of our hearts for all your help in planning this unforgettable experience. Still feels like a dream... I have to pinch myself (and look at our many heartwarming photos) to believe it was really real.
Wishing you, and Columbus Travel all the best.
Happy holidays and a happy new year (in advance)!

The Galapagos was the best experience of our life.
The uninhabited islands were like stepping back in time or to a different planet and the wildlife was incredible.
It was an experience of a lifetime and we want to return!
The service from you was amazing. The service all the way through from transfer to the flight home was superb and we were very well looked after at all times.
An unforgettable experience so thank you to everyone!
All the best
Ya a bordo del vuelo de vuelta a Madrid quería agradecerte la gentileza del regalo de la botella de vino. Nos lo bebimos con mucho gusto para celebrar unas vacaciones estupendas, en un lugar incomparable!
La experiencia en el Endemic fue muy buena. Destacaría como highlights la calidad de la comida y su servicio, los conocimientos del guia naturalista y la excelente (e intensa!) planificación de la vida a bordo.
En cuanto al barco la verdad es que se presenta muy nuevo y bonito. La verdad es que en comparación con otros barcos que cruzábamos es sin duda el más lujoso
Un viaje inolvidable para toda la familia!
Muchísimas gracias por toda tu ayuda para que fuera un éxito (y, de nuevo, un 10 para Patricio 😊)
