Alta - M/Y - SCUBA Diving

Very few feelings compare to that 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 Galapagos sailing boat yachts that can deliver this feeling. It 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 that only sailing ships carry.

When the conditions are appropriate, the sails will be hoisted, engines turned off and Alta will become one the most striking ships in the Galapagos. The sailing yacht ALTA offers both naturalists and diving cruises. She features a comfortable salon for lectures and presentations; TV/Video system; Inside and Al Fresco Dinning Areas; a sundeck with lounge chairs, and a resting area at the stern of the ship. Kayaks are available on board for those who want to experience even a closer encounter with nature.

Meals

Served in either the inside Dinning Room or the Al Fresco Dinning area when climate permits. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are served buffet style and prepared by our specially trained chefs. Meals are served in wholesome quantities and in a variety of menus with tropical exotic fruits always available. Kids and vegetarian menus are also available upon request.

Safety

Alta abides under all international standards of safety for a ship of its type. It is ISM certified and is equipped with an emergency alarm system, 2 emergency life rafts for 16 pax each, emergency life vests, fog horns, smoke detectors, and fire extinguishers. All emergency equipment is SOLAS certified.
