I have visited so many places where I did not speak their language and know how difficult it is to understand others. Haugan Cruises can be commended for making people of different countries and cultures as comfortable as possible."

Petrel Luxury Galapagos Catamaran

The best way to see the Galapagos Islands is on board a luxury cruise, and the newly built Petrel is a proud addition to the Haugan Cruises Galapagos fleet. Guests travel in comfort to the different islands, where they have up-close encounters with blue-footed boobies, iguanas, giant tortoises, whales and more.

The newest ship in Galapagos, the Petrel offers a deluxe way to visit these magical islands. Named after a sea bird common to Galapagos, the Petrel is like its namesake: elegant, swift and silent at sea. A motorized catamaran, the Petrel is designed for comfort and stability and is outfitted with spacious cabins, a comfortable lounge, and Jacuzzi.

On the Petrel, we emphasize the remarkable Natural History of Galapagos, selecting guides who are knowledgeable about biology and ecology in addition to having excellent language skills and client reviews.
