Not to be mistaken for the famous makers of cranberry juice, Ocean Spray is probably the slickest of all the luxury yachts in the Galapagos. A large catamaran, Ocean Spray has nine comfortable cabins (eight double, one single) each with a private balcony.

Ollie is here to help give you the inside track.

The main deck houses four of the cabins, the dining room, buffet bar and lounge while the upper deck has further seating areas, the main bar, the bridge and the rest of the cabins. Finally there is a large sundeck with a Jacuzzi.

Ocean Spray has an expert crew of 11 including the captain, a Galapagos National Park Naturalist Guide and nine other crew including first mate, chef and sous chef (and - most importantly - a barman) who are always on hand to make your stay on board as comfortable as possible. Ocean Spray only uses the finest guides in the Galapagos to really bring the daily trips to the islands to life. Guests can also borrow Ocean Spray kayaks and borrow wetsuits and snorkelling equipment.

Ocean Spray has several set departure expedition cruises a year, ranging from four-day introductory trips to 15-day mega cruises to explore the Galapagos Islands in real depth.
