Boat Description

Humboldt Explorer is a luxury liveaboard operating in the Galapagos. She can accommodate 16 guests in 8 cabins, (most of which can be configured as queens or twins) all of which have ensuite bathrooms, ocean views and flatscreen TVs. The air-conditioned saloon has a sofa area with entertainment system, as well as restaurant style dining area. The alfresco seating area has a full bar and BBQ. There is a sundeck, perfect for watching the stunning scenery drift by, with loungers and jacuzzi. The large dive deck has a camera table, charging ports, individual gear stations and rinse bins, with two dedicated dive tenders. The Galapagos is renowned as an area of spectacular marine (and land) biodiversity. The dramatic archipelago of islands hides some spectacular sights, including marine iguanas, whales, seals, turtles, manta rays, tuna, whale sharks and schooling hammerhead sharks. At sites like Darwin's Arch and Wolf Island, you will be amazed by nature's bounty below the waves. Enjoy some once-in-a-lifetime diving, whilst staying in luxury on board the Humboldt Explorer.
