The Samba is a true European Dutch classic and a stately and comfortable Galapagos sailing vessel. Guests will be pleasantly accommodated in seven double rooms, six with air-conditioning, and each with private facilities and hot water. An ample dining room/salon connects to an outdoor dining facility with large tables, a TV and video system, sound system, mini library of books and videos, and a small bar. The Samba is a graceful, top-quality craft; she is as environmentally friendly as she is socially responsible. She is locally owned, and the entire crew is devoted to making your journey the trip of a lifetime.

The Samba is owned & operated by a local Galapagos family, with decades of experience showcasing the islands to tourists.

With capacity of just 14 passengers, the Samba provides a more personal & intimate Galapagos cruise experience.

Attractive social areas include: ample dining room/lounge connecting to an al fresco dining area, TV and video, music system, small library, and bar.

The “North & West” itinerary is highly recommended, with visits to Isabela, Fernandina & Genovesa included in 8 days. Or why not join both itineraries into a comprehensive 15-day loop?

The Samba has 3 kayaks available for guest use (1 double, 2 single).
