What is this?

The Beluga yacht is an elegant and spacious motor yacht offering a great service ethic as well as an exciting complete loop Galapagos itinerary. The Beluga runs a rotating itinerary - one week to the western islands of Isabela and Fernandina, the other week to the classic north/south route, making it possible to do a 15-day cruise of the best highlights of the Galapagos islands! Panoramic windows in the salon and ample deck space make this a nice choice for views while cruising.

The 15-day cruise is a combo of the two 8-day Galapagos itineraries. Please consult with our sales staff before booking to be sure which itinerary is running for your Galapagos cruise dates.

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 Beluga.

Cruise departure dates are available throughout the year; contact us for up to date availabilities and a price quote - discounts are often available!

Important Note: The Beluga cruise obligates Happy Gringo to buy Galapagos flight tickets directly through them; failure to do so will unfortunately result in a penalty fee being charged to you by the yacht operator.

Beluga Deck plan

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.


“A faultless cruise from start to finish and the Galapagos islands really are truly unforgettable!” (Charlotte Ponting, Australia)

"The Beluga yacht was a great vessel, and the crew was first class. I'd highly recommend this yacht!" (Mark Chastek)

"The cruise was absolutely fantastic - I have enjoyed many excellent services during my trip around South America but this tops the bunch! A truly special experience - I wish I could return to the Galapagos islands tomorrow!" (David Edwards)

"The Galapagos exceeded our expectations, from the boat to the wildlife, to the food, to staff and especially the guide. We had talked to many people in the last year who had said how great their experience had been in the Galapagos and so we had high expectations to begin with, but the trip exceeded all of them!" (Dwight Hawes)

"The Beluga Cruise was absolutely fantastic. It was a smooth cruise voyage even in nightly rough waters with the Beluga rolling with the waves. The naturalist guide on the Beluga was perfect, knowledgeable and great. The daily program was fully to our expectations, perfectly organized and managed. The crew could not have been any better!!! Very good food and accommodations. Awesome. One of the best trips we have ever taken. Highly recommend the Beluga and her team." (Peter & Ingeborg Prochaska)

"Beluga is a good boat with friendly and competent crew, excellent guide. It provided comfort accommodation without being too luxurious. The guides do make every effort to help us see as much as we could." (David Leong)

"So much fun  and the Beluga crew was exemplar. Our guide, David was knowledgeable and tried to accommodate everyone and their individual desire to see or do something.The food was plentiful and healthy. The accommodations were comfortable and clean. The only criticism were the kayaks-they  were in disrepair and very uncomfortable  to use because the foot pegs were broken and some had reutters and others did not - this should be fixed." (Stephanie Rudolph)

* 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.
