Description and details
Diving on the Galapagos Legend in Galapagos
The Galapagos Legend is a magnificent vessel bearing the charm of the Enchanted Islands. Small enough for an intimate experience with friends and family, the crew is aware that everyone looks different on trips of this nature. As such, there are itineraries going from 3 to up to 14-night cruises. Guests can explore various islands of the group, all while being surrounded by wildlife-spotting opportunities, a rich array of water-dwelling creatures and land animals. Guided tours are always part of the overall offer, and include licensed divers that can join you for underwater explorations. Trips start and end at either San Cristobal or Baltra, providing airport access. So, no matter the trip you will decide for yourself, activities like swimming, snorkeling, and kayaking will be just a few.
Galapagos Legend Features and Interior
Originally built in 2002, the Galapagos Legend is 92m (301 feet) long and offers 55 cabins to up to 100 guests. With the renovation in 2016, this liveaboard got a modern touch that very few have. All cabins are air-conditioned, and each cabin has lower beds, special bedding, TV and private facilities. All cabins share a magnificent ocean view, while some have even a balcony. With the renovation, a new cabin configuration is available, assuring enjoyment for families and friends who travel together. In addition, satellite telephone service is offered, while the internet is accessible when anchoring at the main islands.
With three different decks, the Galapagos Legend offers a great variety of comfortable and spacious social areas, all without losing its sense of intimacy. Doesn’t matter if you would like to lose yourself in a good book offered at the onboard library, or you would like to let some steam off at the gym, the liveaboard has it all. There is also a swimming pool, jacuzzi, indoor saloon, and a bar area, all aimed for amazing sea time. You can relax on the sun terrace while admiring the surrounding islands’ flora and fauna, have a BBQ at night or take advantage of the spacious inside auditorium for important conferences. Let’s not forget the delicious local food that is served in the spacious dining room.
