The Nemo II offers a truly intimate cruising experience; with just seven cabins, accommodating a maximum of 14 guests on each cruise, you can be assured of a friendly vibe and personalized service. All cabins have a private bathroom and air conditioning. Some have a double bed, and others have two single bunks. Savour delicious cuisine in the classy dining room and feel the sun’s warm rays on your face as you relax on the sun deck. There is also an indoor lounge from where you can enjoy the views and learn more about the area with the A/V system, and an onboard guide can also help answer any questions you may have. A kayak is carried for further explorations of the waters, though you’ll also be able to get close to wildlife without leaving your small ship cruise vessel.  

Join an eight-day cruise on the Nemo II and be dazzled by the diverse and unusual wildlife, the magical underwater world, and the picturesque vistas of the Galapagos. There are plenty of activities to enjoy. There are two routes to choose between, both starting and finishing at Baltra. The North itinerary takes guests to Santa Cruz, complete with a trip to the Charles Darwin Station, to various points on the island of Isabela, to Buccaneer Cove on Santiago, where snorkeling, kayaking, and panga riding are on the menu of activities, and then to the islands of Rabida, Genovesa, and Daphne. The South program also visits the Charles Darwin Station on Santa Cruz before sailing to San Cristobal and Lobos Island. Other highlights include diverse stops on Espanola, Floreana, Santa Fe, and Santiago islands.  

The friendly staff members of the Nemo II will be keen to help you enjoy your trip from the moment you board the boat. Reserve your cabins for a memorable adventure in the Galapagos by booking online.

A fantastic experience!

The islands on our 8 day cruise showed the diversity and splendor of the marine and terrestrial wildlife. It was truly amazing. The guide and the crew were knowledgeable, friendly and were a lot of fun. We are glad we chose this cruise.

Once in a lifetime experience

We saw so much! Our guide's enthusiasm was great. He seemed to really enjoy sharing the islands with us. He was very knowledgable about the animals and sealife, and while snorkeling would dive under to point out animals we might not see otherwise. It was overall a great experience.

one of the most fantastic trips in my life, live aboard was great, the catamaran has all the thing you need to make the trip so is amazing. Galapagos marine and land wild life is beyond anything I've seen. The guide was excellent, the timing of each activity perfect....not a single complain or suggestion.

Swimming with sharks and penguins. It was a very great trip overall. For improvement: Sleeping was very difficult in our room while generator was running. They provided good service and turned it off after we told them. Also tips information given by Crew was twice as high as recommended by Lonely planets travelguide 2022 for galapagos. That was a bit misleading. Overall we were very happy about the trip.

A fantastic journey through Galapagos nature!

Walking on lava fields. Snorkeling with sharks, sea lions, turtles and many other creatures. Genovesa boobery. Playing with sea lions. Travelling on a catamaran was the best way to really experience and be immersed in Galapagos nature. Crew's attention to details.

Truly another world which I have never experienced before.

Snorkeling with the sea lions swimming around you was the best.

By far the best choice for Galapagos cruise!

I choose Nemo 2 for my Galapagos cruise because I wanted to experience catamaran type of sailing ship & be able to snorkel in many destinations. Oh how good was my decision! Nemo 2 is very stable and you don't get seasick as easily as in other types of ships. Its also small and has perfect group size of 14; You'll get to know others very well and group spirit will be great! I also liked hospitality of crew; they work hard in order to keep ship very clean and you satisfied; Food is great, and there are tasty snacks and soft drinks between meals! And our guide was amazing! He was really helpful and answered to our questions with great enthusiasm! And yes, you can do a lot of snorkeling with Nemo 2 !! which is great!

Jairo and Nemo II crew gave us an outstanding experience of a lifetime! Thank you :)

From safety and cleanliness of Nemo II, amazing food and on-land and in-water guided tours by our well-informed and very professional Naturalist guide, Jairo, we experienced Galapagos Islands in 8 days which we will never forget. Jairo created a wonderful video of our tour which we will treasure, as he captured so many special moments we experienced: swimming with sea lions (not seals!) and sharks, walking on lava fields/volcanoes, watching blue-footed boobies dancing, tip-toeing through Iguanas, the list could go on and on and on! You will not regret your choice to sail on any Nemo :)
