Samba

Samba Active Galapagos
Tourist Superior - 14 pax.

Join our ACTIVE GALAPAGOS OCEAN SAFARI on the highly reputed 14 passenger Samba.  We (CNH Tours) charter the Samba 30 weeks / year and we work very closely with the Galapagos family that owns and operates her to get the absolute best out of your limited time in the islands.  You'll have a top quality hand-picked guide, a full 8 day itinerary (no stopping to pick-up/drop off people on shorter trips), snorkeling and more snorkeling, and a strong focus on experiencing wildlife on its own terms (sunrise landings, slow walks, several long stops to sit amongst iguanas, sea lions, giant tortoises and contemplate your surroundings).   

The Samba regularly receives top reviews on TripAdvisor for her excellent guides, tasty meals, cozy layout and fantastic crew (the captain is possibly the only one in Galapagos who gets in the water with guests and helps them find the elusive sea horse while the rest of the crew organizes the famous "crossing of the equator" celebrations). 

She is a true European Dutch classic and the best in her class.  Her small size lets the captain easily change course to meet up with whales, orcas, ocean sunfish and more.  It's also perfect for watching the bow-riding dolphins just barely an arm's length below.
