The 16-guest Camila is the first trimaran built in Ecuador and the only trimaran operating in the Galapagos Islands. Her three hulls mean faster navigation, saving time between islands and landing sites; increased sustainability due to reduced fuel consumption; greater stability than a double hull; and no internal hull vibration. Aboard the Galapagos cruise ship Camila, guests are treated to private balconies, a qualified cruise manager and a 16:10 guest-to-crew member ratio. As the third vessel in the newest fleet in the Galapagos Islands, the M/T Camila boutique Galapagos small ship is ready to elevate the standard of luxury Galapagos cruising.

Sustainability Aboard Camila
All guests aboard Camila travel knowing their carbon emissions are offset through Canopy Co, an Ecuador-based organization managed by local and European professionals dedicated to reforesting Ecuador’s native forests for the benefit of the climate, the local community and, of course, Ecuador’s phenomenal flora and fauna. Camila’s entire operation has been included in the offsets, from the fuel used by the engines on board the trimaran to the bus rides her crew and guides take to work. Aboard Camila, rest assured that from arrival in the Galapagos Islands to the point of departure, the carbon footprint will be a net zero.
