Very few experiences compare to the feeling of a ship sailing through the water, with engines turned off and nothing but the sound of the wind hitting the sails and the hull breaking the water. Alta is one of the few ships in Galapagos that can deliver this feeling.
Named Yacht of the Month in the past by Yachting Magazine, Alta is one of the most beautiful ships on the Islands, ideal for travelers seeking exclusivity, style and uniqueness. The ship is exceptionally stylish, with gorgeous detailing and furnishings and carries that grandeur and special charm proper to sailing ships. It provides much more outside space than other sailing ships of its kind in Galapagos and when conditions are appropriate, the sails are hoisted, engines turned off, and Alta becomes one of the most striking ships on the Islands.
