Avalon Waterways

Cruiseline:  Avalon Waterways
Ship:  La Pinta

Seeing the Galápagos Islands on board the La Pinta goes beyond the concept of traditional cruising, evolving into an expedition approach in order to authentically discover and explore the natural wonders of this region. The La Pinta is built to luxurious standards and encourages an elegant yet relaxed atmosphere.

New for 2008, the La Pinta yacht features snorkeling equipment, wetsuits, and kayaks for guests. While on board, work out in the fitness center or relax on the Sun Deck. The La Pinta's expert crew and knowledgeable multilingual naturalist/guides delight passengers with diverse natural history explanations, superb on-deck talks, and fascinating lectures on this amazing archipelago.

The La Pinta features a Jacuzzi and an observation platform for dolphin and whale watching on the top deck. Each ship's dining room, lounge, and bar are elegantly appointed, as is the well-stocked library/reading room. All 24 staterooms are outside cabins and feature air-conditioning, private bathrooms, hairdryers, and safety deposit boxes. The La Pinta accommodates 48 passengers.
