The Eclipse yacht is unique in offering generous and spacious cabins of a larger vessel while maintaining the atmosphere and exclusivity of a smaller yacht. The superb on-board facilities include: library, boutique, infirmary (a doctor is available 24 hours, no extra costs for medication), spacious lounge, observation sun deck and Jacuzzi. It is also one of the few Galapagos yachts to have been awarded the environmental Smart Voyager certification for the use of biodegradable materials and having an ecological waste system among other things.
Apart from the obvious comforts and exclusive service a real plus for the Eclipse yacht is the extra stability of being on a large yacht, the close personal attention (1 guide per 12 passengers!) and an excellent itinerary which takes passengers to a comprehensive combination of southern, northern and western island highlights. Adjoining rooms are available for families (if requested in advance).
Eight double kayaks are also available for use on board.
A recommended Galapagos cruise option!

PAST CLIENT ECLIPSE YACHT FEEDBACK
“A wonderful cruise, thanks so much for persuading us to choose the Eclipse – it was just perfect for our family.” (Max Delaney, Wales)
“The crew could not have done anything more to make us happy and comfortable aboard – they even surprised me with a birthday cake during the week to make my day extra-special.” (Mary Derbyshire, UK)
"The Eclipse was great – being on a bigger boat was not an issue because we always went out in small groups. The naturalists were all excellent and the food on board was fantastic. The average age of the group was over 50s. I’m glad we upgraded to a deluxe cabin as it was a good size." (Daniel Heal)
or other Galapagos agencies sell their charter spaces to us at higher prices.
