Xavier YACHT GALAPAGOS CRUISE ITINERARIES 2017

Browse through the different cruise itineraries below by clicking on each one.

Important note about Galapagos itineraries: On day1 there is only time for an afternoon visit to be included; and on the final day only a brief morning visit. The reason for this is to connect with the Galapagos flight arrivals and departures at the airport. All Galapagos yachts follow this schedule, not only the Xavier.

Important Note: We are more than happy to request the cabin of your choice at time of booking - just let us know. But please be aware that but the final decision on cabin allocation is always in the hands of the yacht operator so Happy Gringo cannot be held responsible if the operator decides to allocate you to an alternative cabin.

PAST CLIENTS XAVIER YACHT FEEDBACK

“We booked late and the Xavier yacht was the best of the options available - it did not disappoint. We did itinerary A which I felt offered us excellent variety in what we could see.” (David Martin, Canada)

* Prices may increase if Galapagos yacht operators put prices up for certain popular dates (especially July / August)
or other Galapagos agencies sell their charter spaces to us at higher prices.

* All boat information is correct at time of publishing but subject to change by the yacht owner or Galapagos National Park authority.
