The powerful and eco-friendly Galapagos Master offers the ultimate pelagic dive safari, from hammerheads, whale sharks, sea lions and even penguins to the intrigue of the Galapagos Island underwater life.

Crafted from steel, this vessel stands out for its exceptional stability and speed, attributed to its unique design that prioritizes a lower profile. Recently rejuvenated in early 2023, Galapagos Master presents enticing 7 and 10 night expedition options encompassing premier dive destinations within the Galapagos.

She graciously accommodates a maximum of 16 divers on every voyage, ensuring paramount safety and comfort for all aboard. Boasting eight air-conditioned cabins distributed across three decks, each cabin boasts its own private ensuite bathroom equipped with hot water and ample storage capacity for personal belongings. Adding to the convenience and adaptability, Galapagos Master offers cabins that can effortlessly transform into either twin or double-bed configurations.

Guests will find respite in the communal spaces, including a spacious indoor lounge situated on the mid-deck. Here, guests can unwind while enjoying their favorite movies or reviewing their latest underwater captures on the plasma screen television. The indoor dining area tantalizes with a diverse array of delectable cuisine, complemented by an adjacent cocktail bar. Photographers will appreciate the well-equipped indoor camera station, featuring multiple charging ports (US round pin plug). Additional storage drawers located aft of the vessel ensure that even photography-focused charters have ample room for their gear.

Galapagos Master's expansive sun-deck caters to sun enthusiasts, allowing them to bask in the Galapagos splendor while acquiring a sun-kissed glow. Alternatively, for those who prefer shade, the upper level offers a perfect sanctuary with plush lounge chairs and benches.

With a comprehensive array of state-of-the-art safety equipment, including GPS, VHF radios, satellite communication, two life rafts, emergency oxygen, and an AED, guests can embark on their journey knowing they are ensconced in the utmost protection and security.
