Panoramic Main Lounge
An impressively large space with beam-to-beam windows, the main lounge is the heart of Aqua Mare. The centre of the space is furnished with a stately U-shaped sofa where guests may find respite after morning and afternoon excursions, watch lectures on two large flatscreen televisions presented by expert naturalist guides
Aft Outdoor Dining Area
The diverse and dynamic cuisine served onboard Aqua Mare deserves to be presented in a spectacular setting, and the Aft Outdoor Dining Room is the perfect location with its sweeping views and all the meals are communal, making this a better choice for a group of friends.
Located at the lower deck, this multipurpose room is one of the highlights of Aqua Mare. Named the ‘Beach Club’ because it is located at water level, it serves as an extension of the dynamic Galapagos Islands landscape and boasts a swimming platform from which many excursions are launched. This room serves as a pre-excursion briefing space and is also ideal for guests to come together to swap stories after a busy day of activities, or simply take advantage of the wraparound sofa, large panoramic windows and flatscreen TV for a lazy family movie night indoors.
The Upper Deck’s teak sun deck is the ideal spot to take in the stunning panorama of the Galapagos Islands. Offering spectacular 360-degree views, it is furnished with a shaded al fresco dining area, barbecue section, outdoor seating with wraparound lounge sofa, jacuzzi, and convertible workout zone. It is the ideal space for an early morning guided meditation, sunset cocktails, evening grill party, and to enjoy the clear night skies of both northern and southern hemispheres.
Jacuzzi and Lounge Daybeds
Cool down from your active excursions by plunging into our six-person jacuzzi while enjoying exceptional volcanic views of the Archipelago. Soak up the warmth of the Galapagos sun on the lounge daybeds and while lazy afternoons can be spent reading.
Outdoor dining and seating area
The sun deck panoramic dining area is ideal for al fresco lunches, sunset cocktails, evening barbecues and breath-taking stargazing, thanks to its two communal dining tables. Enjoy all-day dining here or simply admire the surrounding landscape views in absolute comfort.
