Description and details
Diving on the MY Coral 1 & 2 in Galapagos
MY Coral I & II
The 40 meters (approx. 131 feet) Coral I was built in 2004 and renovated with ultra-modern facilities in 2016, whereas the length of Coral II is 35 meters (approx. 113 feet). Coral II was built 2006 and was renovated with her elder sister in the same year. They are famous for providing a speedy cruise with 12 knots per hour, which means you have more time to explore the islands and less time to spend on traveling. Each day spent on these liveaboards is full of fun-filled activities, adventurous dives, and exploring the nature either under the deep blue waters of the Galapagos or while trekking on the surface. The onboard guides are well-trained and professional. They have deep knowledge about the exotic islands and the marine life.
Coral I is a European designed naturalist cruise ship. The modern shape and functional mid-size make it an ideal choice for those who seek an intimate dive cruise vacation with close friends or families. The 18 decorative and fully furnished cabins have everything that is required to make it as comfortable as possible. All the amenities are well-aligned so that the 36 guests are accommodated with every thick and thin. Whereas, Coral II is a combo of form and functions. It has spacious and romantic living areas, restaurant type dining, gleamy and enticing decks. It has the capacity to accommodate 20 travelers in 10 cozy staterooms.
