Cruise the Galápagos Islands by private yacht for an unforgettable and awe-inspiring wildlife experience. From the giant land tortoises and endearing marine iguanas to blue-footed boobies and descendants of Darwin’s finches, witness nature’s infinite variety in one of the last pristine places on Earth.
A private yacht to call home, eight glorious days in some of the planet’s most unique wildlife on land and below the waters. By day, enjoy hiking and outstanding snorkeling adventures; toast to tangerine sunsets and marvel stars illuminating the pure darkness in the evenings.
Experience the Galápagos from a front row seat–in the cockpit of a kayak! This multisport trip allows for a very intimate discovery of the islands. Whether you are paddling or dog-paddling in the company of green sea turtles and playful sea lions, the sights above and below the water are unmatched.
In 1820, the 2-masted HMS Beagle 10-gun brig-sloop was launched on the River Thames near London. The 28-meter (90 foot) vessel’s second voyage (1831-36) was a circumnavigation of South America and then the globe–Charles Darwin was aboard as a naturalist. The ship was so crowded with crew that Darwin had to sleep in a hammock that was slung above the drafting table in the poop cabin!
Aboard the 3-masted Mary Anne, you will have a more pampered experience than Darwin! She has 1,000 square meters of canvas sails and is the only schooner in the Galápagos. A silent sail, powered by wind offers the distinct charms of the past but with all the comforts of present-day. Weather-permitting, Mary Anne’s sails will be hoisted once per trip so we can feel her power. She is the only ship in the Galápagos Archipelago that can navigate by wind power alone and our expert crew will gladly welcome your help in the hoisting!
Sailing the Pacific and navigating around the biodiverse Galápagos Islands is an unforgettable expedition for snorkellers, bird lovers, Darwin fans, sailors (greenhorns and sea dogs alike) and those who love extreme landscapes and experiences.
