ABOUT - 

Galapagos cruises

To navigate the Galapagos Islands by yacht is one of the most pleasurable experiences you can have. The first sensation is freedom, when looking at the open sea and feel the encounter with nature. Then, there is the visit to each of the islands, where the flora and fauna are unique. Both aspects take you into a spectacular world: storm petrels at Genovesa, giant tortoises at Santa Cruz, flamingos at Floreana or albatross at Española Island.

Distant and unique points in Galapagos can be comfortably reached only by traveling from island to island on a yacht. This pleasant transportation offers the opportunity to let time pass while listening to the craziest legends like the Wagner Baroness from Floreana, the King of the Galapagos, Manuel J. Cobos from San Cristobal, pirates’ stories, among others. Under the crystalline waters it is possible to see schools of stingrays, schools of sharks, dolphin herds or sea turtles following the yacht, while opportunistic frigates appear from the sky.

 

The Galapagos Islands are one of the most exotic destinations, not only because of the wildlife that is only found in this part of the world and their incredible landscapes and pristine waters, but also for the possibilities that travelers have at their disposal for direct contact with wildlife.


Among the diversity of offers, an example is the yacht "Anahi" (Guarani word meaning "beautiful as the flower of Ceibo"). A Catamaran, or double-hull boat with all conveniences, which is very common in the islands for tourists’ transportation to remote sites such as Genovesa Island or Fernandina Island. This type of boat is very stable, with less resistance to advance in water, which guarantees its passengers a calm and relaxed cruise. It has spacious cabins, luxury finishes, and bathrooms, showers with hot water, all the latest technologies and safety equipment.
