The M/S Samba is a Dutch-built motor sailor. Equipped with teak decks it was built in 1966 as a luxury private yacht, the Samba is now a perfectly re-imagined cruise boat specialized for Galapagos Islands vacations.
The M/S Samba is truly one of the most sought after cruise boats in the Galapagos. It is usually booked solid for the whole year way in advance. Reason for this is its exceptional itineraries and guides. You will usually cruise the islands with the owner of the boat as your guide. He is very experienced and treats his guests just like an owner should.
On board the Samba you will have two great week-long itineraries to choose from. This is another advantage of the Samba which only does 8-day long itineraries and does not cut or split their itineraries to provide for a more intimate and hassle-free experience. On the Samba’s SouthEastern and Central itinerary you will visit the iconic islands of Floreana and Española in style and get to catch a glimpse and a perfect pic of Pinnacle Rock the renowned Galapagos sight featured in movies such as Master and Commander. A great itinerary on a great boat!
The cream of the crop itinerary aboard the Samba is hands down the NorthWestern itinerary which visits 4 of the 5 top 5 islands in the Galapagos, which include; Isabela, Fernandina, Genovesa and Floreana Islands! This is one of the best itineraries you will find in the Galapagos. And with the guidance of the yacht’s owner, you are in for an unforgettable experience!
Come aboard the Samba, and experience the fun and adventure the Galapagos Islands have to offer!
