The M/B Pikaia II - ROAL

The Pikaia II is our 35 foot boat, designed to offer a guided coastal fishing
and snorkeling tour experience around the Santa Cruz island.

The Pikaia II will take a maximum of six Pikaia Lodge guests on half-day tours, where Galapagos fishermen share their traditional fishing techniques.

Our guests could have the opportunity to hone their fishing skills using fishing rods.

They can catch-and-release, or choose one fish to take back to the Lodge to be freshly prepared by our chefs. After fishing, guests can swim, snorkel and relax in lagoons and beaches. These spectacular and pristine sites are full of marine life, rarely visited by tourists.

This new fishing-tourism model has been recently approved and promoted by the National Park as a sustainable economic alternative for local fishermen, by incorporating them into eco-tourism.

Pikaia Lodge supports this sustainable initiative and has worked with local fishermen to incorporate them into its Santa Cruz Island exploration programs.

The Pikaia II fishing boat is especially equipped for the comfort and safety of our guests. The crew is comprised of local fishermen, whom we have trained to operating to our standards.
