Boat Description

Accommodating only 8 guests, the 26 metre long Nortada liveaboard offers an intimate experience diving the Galapagos Islands. The liveaboard features 4 cabins, with twin beds, air-conditioning, and ample storage space. On the upper deck, a sun deck is available to warm up after dives while an air-conditioned dining room and lounge provide the perfect place to gain refuge from the heat outdoors. A spacious diving platform has plenty of room for storage as well as outside showers, camera tables, and rebreather rinsing facilities. Venturing out in small groups, the Nortada offers a more personal and private insight into the Galapagos Islands. For 7 nights, guests can visit the iconic dive sites of Punta Carrion, Baltra, Cousin Rock, Wolf Island, Darwin Island, Cape Douglas, Cape Marshall and Punta Vicente Roca. On the way, divers will encounter a thriving marine ecosystem, with hammerheads, oceanic sunfish, baleen whales, eagle rays, and so much more. The Galapagos Islands is host to several endemic species such as the black-striped salema.
