IIdeal for Mid-Sized Charters
Simply stated, the Alta is the most elegant sailing ship in the Galápagos and ideal for modern-day explorers seeking uniqueness and exclusivity. Under sail she cuts an attention-grabbing profile while making for an exhilarating onboard experience. The interesting architecture of her eight, well appointed cabins is both spacious and charming, and you’ll find ample closet and drawer space.
The salon,where we receive briefings from our naturalist guide each day, is bounded on three sides by a comfortable built-in sofa across from an old-fashioned bar—and a modern-day entertainment center
