Archipel II

Archipel II Description

The Archipel II is a great choice for adventurers looking to travel with a conscience. This mid-range catamaran is built with six different solar panels to power the craft easing the impact on the Galapagos ecosystem. In addition, the Archipell hosts a lounge with a TV set, library, bar, and a solarium where you can enjoy the sunshine on the inside too.

It's also one of the best values in the mid-range category giving you the stability of a catamaran at a price point of a smaller single-hulled yacht. It gets excellent reviews for this price range and is one of the favorites of Columbus' destination experts.

Enjoy the coffee station at your leisure and the delicious Ecuadorian-Italian menus prepared for your meals in the dining room. To further accommodate you, the Archipell can cater to different dietary needs or restrictions upon request.

Archipel II Cabins

Choose from 8 different cabins with options of two queen-sized beds or 6 twin beds. All rooms are equipped with hot water, a closet and air conditioning.
