Daphne MOTOR BOAT

The Daphne yacht is a highly-reputed comfortable class motor boat offering very good value compared to the other yachts of the same Galapagos class. In 2012 the North itinerary in particular visits some excellent sites on Isabela and Fernandina islands.

This yacht is more inclusive than most in that the price includes a Quito hotel night both before and after the cruise as well as return flights to the islands.

Important Note: We are more than happy to request the cabin of your choice at time of booking - just let us know.
