The Alya (previously known as the Alia) is one of the newest, most luxurious catamarans to sail the Galapagos Islands. Tasteful decoration, exquisite buffet-style cuisine, ample social areas, and top-notch bilingual naturalist guides make it one of the most sought after luxury cruising yachts in all of the Galapagos Islands.
4-day, 5-day, and 8-day cruise itineraries take you to some of the most dramatic spots in the archipelago. The 4-day itinerary takes you to the eastern islands, the 5-day cruise covers the central islands, and the 8-day “B” itinerary is one of the most comprehensive offered in the Galapagos spanning from San Cristobal Island in the east to the western edges of Isabela Island and the volcanically active Fernandina.
The Alya has nine stylish, spacious cabins that carry up to 16 passengers in total. Eight of the cabins have private balconies, but no outdoor furniture, and all rooms have stylish private baths, independently controlled air conditioning, and the option of two twin beds or one queen-size configuration.
