Tiburon Explorer is the newest addition to the esteemed Explorer Fleet. 

Air-conditioned cabins with views of the Pacific Ocean

The state-of-the-art Tiburon Explorer, debuting in April 2020, accommodates 16 passengers in nine air-conditioned cabins. All rooms are located on the main and lower decks and have windows to maximize views of the renowned Pacific Ocean and Galapagos Archipelago. In addition, each stateroom has twin beds that can be converted to comfortable queen beds for couples, and include private bath and shower facilities, dressers, and closets. 

Hot tubs, whale sharks and hammerheads

When you're not out searching for whale sharks, you can enjoy the air-conditioned salon on the main deck, furnished with dining tables, TV, CD/DVD, video library and lounge area. Sunbathing and viewing areas on the top deck offer ample seating and a hot tub where you can regale stories of hammerheads from your day. 

Well-equipped dive deck

The spacious dive deck is outfitted with individual gear bins, air, and nitrox filling stations, tank racks, and a separate fresh water rinse tank for underwater camera equipment. Photographers and videographers will also be delighted with the dedicated camera table and recharging stations. From here you will have easy access to the two large pangas (tenders) that will take you to the diving sites.

Re-fuel with delicious meals on board

Lunch and evening meals usually consist of lots of salad, potatoes, rice, chicken, beef, pork, and fish. Breakfast is the usual fare of eggs, cereal, toast and fresh fruits. If you have any dietary restrictions or requests, please indicate so on your booking form. Please note that specific brands of soft drinks, dressings and foods are often unavailable in these remote islands, and that it can be very difficult for us to find low-fat or soy products and other speciality items - but the utmost will be done to accommodate your needs.
