Anahí Yacht Catamaran


16 guests


10 knots


Motor Catamaran


90.50 ft / 27.60 m



The Motor Catamaran Anahi is a delightfully comfortable yacht, built specifically for Galápagos cruises in Ecuador in 2006. This first-class vessel has been designed with stability in mind, offering you a wonderfully relaxed and calm cruise experience. Although a thoroughly modern ship, Anahi is richly decorated throughout with natural wood finishes, including beautiful teak decks and flooring for a real touch of luxury.

Stateroom or Suite?
Taking a maximum of only 16 passengers, Anahi gives you an exclusive experience. Her 6 twin bed cabins have been designed to provide a cozy, “home-from-home” feel, and all offer private en suite bathrooms and large windows, letting light flood in. If you want to treat yourself to something grander, there are two suites onboard on the upper deck. These feature superb king size beds, plenty of extra space, and windows across an entire wall with remarkable views over the bows of the catamaran. All cabins feature independent air conditioning for your comfort.

Space to take in the islands
A huge benefit to the catamaran design is the amount of additional space compared to a traditional single-hull Galápagos cruise boat. The lounge and indoor dining area offer plenty of space for eating, relaxing, and learning about the fascinating wildlife and habitats from your naturalist guide. Make your way to the upper level and you are greeted by a vast open stern deck which features a fantastic alfresco bar, and plenty of space for dining outside under the equatorial sun – or, more sensibly, under the shady canopy! There’s even a jacuzzi big enough for 6 at a time here – a real treat on a Galápagos cruise of this class. Sun-worshippers aren’t forgotten. Just make your way up to the top of the boat where the unobstructed sundeck awaits. With comfortable loungers and faux-grass flooring, this deck offers uninterrupted views of the Galápagos.

Your every whim catered for
The Anahi’s 9 crew will ensure that everything you need is taken care of. Your cabin will be serviced several times a day, you will enjoy an excellent range of gourmet-quality food, served in a relaxed atmosphere as either buffet-style or full-service meals. When the weather is suitable, you will eat under the shade of the main deck bar – a perfect place to share a meal with like-minded travelers. The bar is very well stocked, and complimentary waters, teas and coffees are available at all times.

Bringing you closer to the Galápagos
The Anahi offers a great range of itineraries, including the ability to put two of her 8 day Galápagos cruises together to enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime 15-day experience – the ultimate way to see everything Galápagos has to offer. Anahi’s bilingual National Park naturalist guide will lead you on a wide variety of activities, designed to bring you as close to the wildlife, flora and unique habitats of the Galápagos as possible. As well as guided hikes on the islands, you will also enjoy snorkeling (with use of complementary masks, snorkels and fins), panga rides and sea kayaking.

Our thoughts
We do like first-class catamarans like Anahi. They are much more stable than traditional yachts and can travel faster, meaning you get to see more for any given number of days. Naturalist guide Gallo is consistently rated as one of the best by travellers, and the entire crew is always ready to go the extra mile for you. We particularly like the stern deck jacuzzi just across from the bar – the ideal place to watch the sun go down. The choice of itineraries is more extensive than most ships in her class, and we love the flexibility this brings for you to choose the perfect match for what you want to get from your Galápagos experience – if you need some help to choose, just speak to one of our friendly Galápagos experts today.

Day 1:
Friday. Santa Cruz Island: Highlands

Flight from Quito or Guayaquil to the Galápagos Islands.

Upon our arrival at Baltra Airport, our guide will greet us in the lobby, assist us with our luggage, and will accompany us on the short bus ride (15 minutes) to the Itabaca Channel. After crossing, we will travel for 45 minutes to 1 hour by bus toward the highlands of the island of Santa Cruz. Then we will enjoy a delicious lunch on a private ranch. Passengers who embark on the yacht in Puerto Ayora will have lunch aboard and will go to visit the highlands with the rest of the group later.

Our guide will take us on a walk through a beautiful forest full of ferns, sedges, and Miconias, while you might also observe some giant tortoises in their natural habitat.

Later, we will head to one of the many lava tunnels in the area. Here we will enjoy a short walk through the tunnel, where we can admire the results of a powerful volcanic eruption that occurred millions of years ago.

After our visit, we will head to Puerto Ayora and board the yacht, where we will have an official welcome drink, followed by dinner. After dinner, our guide will explain the following day’s activities as well as some general recommendations for visitors to the Galápagos Islands.

Lunch and dinner are included on the ranch and aboard.

Day 2:
Saturday. Isabela Island: Puerto Villamil and Sierra Negra Volcano

Isabela is the name of the largest and the youngest island within the Galápagos Archipelago.

In the morning we will begin our first visit to the islets known as Las Tintoreras, located south of Puerto Villamil. This area has a small bay of calm turquoise water, where we can observe sea lions, sea turtles, marine iguanas, stingrays, and many more aquatic species.

Next, we will walk along a path and explore two different beaches. The first beach that we will encounter is a popular place for sea lions and marine iguanas that nest in the area, while the second beach is surrounded by button mangroves (Conocarpus Erecta) and white mangroves (Laguncularia racemosa).

After the visit to «Las Tintoreras», we will disembark at Puerto Villamil to head to the Sierra Negra Volcano, found in the highlands of the island, as it rises to an altitude of 1124m. It is located between the Cerro Azul volcano to the west and the Alcedo volcano to the north. Furthermore, it is one of the most active volcanoes of the Galápagos, with the latest eruption occurring in June 2018.

After lunch, during the afternoon, we will visit the wetlands known as “Los Humedales”, where we will be able to see a wide variety of wetland birds with the majority of them being endemic to the island.

After our visit, we will have some free time in the small town of Puerto Villamil. At the end of the day, we will board the yacht for dinner and a well-deserved rest.

Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are included aboard.

NOTE: This day’s itineraries may be modified, depending on weather conditions.

Day 3:
Sunday. Isabela Island: Punta Moreno and Elizabeth Bay

Punta Moreno is located on the north coast of Isabela Island, between the Sierra Negra and Cerro Azul volcanoes. The distance of the trail is about 2100 meters, but this will grant us a panoramic view of the three most active volcanoes in the Galápagos: Sierra Negra and Cerro Azul on Isabela Island, and the summit of Fernandina Island. We will have the opportunity to do a surface dive in this area, where, despite the cold waters, marine life is abundant. After this visit, we will return to the yacht for lunch and a little rest before heading out for our afternoon activity.

In the afternoon we will visit Elizabeth Bay. The trip will begin in a cove surrounded by red mangroves. Here we will be able to observe sea turtles, flightless cormorants, spotted eagle rays, golden rays, brown pelicans, and sea lions. Visitors have often been able to see Galápagos falcons fly over their heads, while Pompano and Mahi-mahi fish schools are seen swimming below. This is an amazing site due to a large amount of marine and terrestrial fauna as well as due to the unique and beautiful landscape of the area. After this visit, we will return to the yacht for dinner and rest.

Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are included aboard.

Day 4:
Monday. Isabela Island: Urbina Bay and Tagus Cove

Urbina Bay is located at the east base of the Alcedo volcano, with an approximately 3200m path connecting it to the beach, where, after a beach landing, we will have to cross through the coastal zone, traversing sand, rocks, lava, corals, and plant formations. At this site, we will be able to see large-sized land iguanas, as well as giant Galápagos tortoises, flightless cormorants, blue-footed boobies, Galápagos penguins, pelicans, and marine iguanas.

We will return to the yacht to enjoy a delicious lunch, followed by a short sailing towards Tagus Cove. Here we will have the opportunity to snorkel, surface dive, or kayak. At around 4 pm, we will hike to the top of the cliff that takes us to a viewpoint of Lake Darwin, a lake that has high saline concentrations.

Finally, we will observe Lake Darwin. It doesn’t contain any fish and only a few lifeforms due to its high salinity. Supposedly, in the past, there was an explosive volcanic eruption in the area, since there is a large number of volcanic rocks of varying sizes that can be found here. Among the most common are small spherical balls, that are almost perfect in shape, referred to as “lapilli” or petrified rain.

Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are included aboard.

Day 5:
Tuesday. Fernandina Island: Punta Espinoza / Isabela Island: Punta Vicente Roca

Fernandina is the third largest island in the archipelago and has only one point of interest. Punta Espinoza is located on the far northeast part of the island and is a narrow platform of lava and sand that extends from the base of the volcano to the sea.

Punta Espinoza is well known for its large colonies of marine iguanas, and its unique fauna full of species such as the flightless cormorant, the Galápagos penguin, the Galápagos falcon, and the Galápagos racer snake. After this visit, there will be a possibility to snorkel in the area, where we will be able to swim with marine iguanas, large colonies of sea turtles, and if we are lucky even beautiful seahorses.

Isabela Island is believed to have the shape of a seahorse, where Punta Vicente Roca would be considered the mouth. At this location, you will find the remains of an ancient volcano that forms two coves with clear turquoise water, in conjunction with a bay protected from the waves of the ocean. From this point, we will have a snorkeling activity, followed by a panga ride along the cliffs o observe the remains of the volcano, or we may explore a cave that is partially found underwater.

Nazca boobies and blue-footed boobies perch along the steep cliffs, while the flightless cormorants inhabit the coast.

At the end of our activity, we will begin navigating the ship, so that we will approach and cross the equator line. At this point, we will have a special cocktail to celebrate our crossing to the northern hemisphere.

Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are included aboard.

Day 6:
Wednesday. Santiago Island and Rábida Island

Puerto Egas is a black sand beach located on the west side of James Bay, northwest of Santiago Island. The site gets its name after Mr. Héctor Egas, who tried to exploit the salt found in this area, however, failed due to the price of salt in other parts of the country.

The hike along the rugged coastline, especially during low tides, will allow us to observe many marine species, such as the iguanas relaxing on the rocks, and the sea lions resting in the tidal pools.

We will have the opportunity to snorkel near the beach of Puerto Egas in order to enjoy the marine landscape that is relatively different from previously visited locations.

In the afternoon we will visit Rábida Island, said to be unique due to the red color of its rocks and sand. The volcanic material on this island is very porous and external factors such as rain, saltwater, and sea breeze have acted as oxidizing agents. When we arrive, we will enjoy a snorkeling activity, in order to learn about the marine life in this area, which is full of interesting aquatic species.

A short walk along a trail will take us to a lagoon to observe the beautiful terrestrial birds, such as finches, pigeons, yellow warblers, and mockingbirds. This lagoon is also home to a colony of flamingos. The red sand beach, along with the animals, lagoons, and vegetation make this place an excellent location to visit.

Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are included aboard.

Day 7:
Thursday. Sombrero Chino Islet and Bartolomé Island

After a short night of sailing, the sun will dawn on the beautiful “Sombrero Chino” channel. This small islet is located near the southeastern coast of Santiago Island. Our visit provides an excellent opportunity for the observation and understanding of geological characteristics such as lava tubes and lava flows. The landscape is covered by colonies of sea lions, marine iguanas, and occasionally Galápagos penguins.

The trail is 700 meters (there and back) and the minimum time that is required for this hike is one hour at a moderate pace. We will take our time to swim in this beautiful bay area, where we will be amongst sharks, stingrays, unique species of fish, and occasionally penguins, before returning to the yacht to enjoy a barbecue on the top deck. We can also spend time exploring the area with kayaks, and visiting the magnificent geological formations from the surface.

Bartolomé Island is one of the most famous spots in the Galápagos, located in front of Sullivan Bay near the island of Santiago. When arriving at this unique location, we will have the opportunity to enter the water and swim around the famous Pinnacle Rock, and between the rocks that come out from below the surface of the water, forming an incredible labyrinth for marine life.

Later we will visit the top of the island, where we will be able to observe a variety of volcanic formations, including volcanic bombs, ash cones, lava flows, and lava tubes. This lunar scenery provides one of the most scenic landscapes of the archipelago.

At the second site that we will visit, we will have the opportunity to relax on a beautiful beach, which offers excellent opportunities for snorkeling. Multicolored fish, and occasionally penguins and sea turtles have been seen at the base of the Pinnacle Rock, which dominates the landscape of Bartolomé.

Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are included aboard.

Day 8:
Friday. North Seymour Island

North Seymour is a small island located to the north of Baltra and will act as our last visit on the itinerary aboard Catamaran Yacht Anahí, and we will be able to observe the land iguanas of Baltra.

Then we will return to the yacht for lunch and a deserved rest.

PM: Santa Fe Island: An extremely scenic island, where we can visit two different trails, with one of them leading to a beautiful viewpoint on the top of a cliff, where you can find endemic land iguanas on the island. The other trail is a small circular path close to the beach, where we will be able to observe another colony of land iguanas. Here we will also have the possibility to kayak, snorkel, panga ride, or walk, in order to observe and enjoy nature. Then we will return to the yacht for dinner and a time of relaxation.

Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are included aboard.

Day 4:
Monday. San Cristóbal Island: Punta Pitt, Kicker Rock and Lobos Island.

Punta Pitt: Considered one of the most beautiful and impressive sites in the Galápagos, it has become one of the favorite nesting sites for seabirds. Here we will be able to see three species of frigate birds and their nesting sites in the same area. Then we will return to the yacht for lunch.

Kicker Rock: This is a gigantic and impressive rock formation known locally as ‘León Dormido’ where we can see a multitude of blue-footed boobies, masked boobies, pelicans, and sea birds that will delight us with their majestic flights to be photographed.

Later we head towards Isla Lobos, an islet separated from San Cristóbal Island by a narrow stretch of calm waters. On the islet, we will take a walk that will allow us to observe frigates, blue-footed boobies, masked boobies, and a colony of sea lions and we will also be able to snorkel in the arm of the sea, probably with the company of sea lions and different kinds of colorful fish.
