  • Inter-connected cabins are available, ideal for family groups travelling together.
  • The Main deck lounge offers board games, videos, books and music to keep you busy during the cruise.

About Galapagos itineraries

On day 1 there is only time for an afternoon visit to be included; similarly, on the final day, there is only a brief morning visit. The reason for this is to connect with the Galapagos flight arrivals and departures at the airport.

Christmas, New Years Eve and Easter departures will have an extra cost increase of 20% of the rate shown above

Contact us for information about which itineraries will run on different dates through the year, and to check tour availabilities. We often have special Galapagos offers too!

All yacht information is correct at time of publishing but may be subject to change by the yacht operator or Galapagos National Park authority. Published prices may be subject to change without prior notice
