Perception vs. Reality
I’ve done a great deal of sailing in calm harbours, so I guess in the tropical waters of Galapagos my boat won’t move enough to cause me any discomfort?
Stability can make all of the difference for an enjoyable cruise vacation and it is a strong feature of an expedition vessel. Contrary to common assumption, tropical waters are not always calm and an expedition vessel, by its very nature, reduces movement at sea. Single-guided boats often face interesting challenges when sailing between islands.
TRAVEL EXPERT TIP:
Ask what kind of ship will be the most comfortable for you.
