SAMBA

Samba is a charming old favourite, very good value and has great itineraries. It is a comfortable 78-foot, solid, motor-yacht with stabilizing sails.

Samba was re-furbished for Galapagos cruising and is owned and operated by a local family who employ a top-notch naturalist. The atmosphere is casual and the service friendly and efficient, with delicious Ecuadorian cuisine.

Other features are a wooden interior saloon with observation windows, small library and there is an alternative outdoor dining area astern. Snorkelling equipment and kayaks are available.

Samba has 6 double air-conditioned cabins with private bathrooms en suite. Each has a lower double sized bunk and single upper. Plus another upper deck cabin with king-sized bed.
