Signature Galapagos


Private Journey


Travel to Quito, the highland capital of Ecuador, and after a couple of days in this exotic capital fly on to embark on a leisurely cruise around the Galápagos Islands, to see the greatest wildlife show on Earth. It was on a similar trip 200 years ago that Darwin returned to the archipelago to write the seminal book ‘On The Origin of Species’. Step into his shoes and explore the diversity of land and marine life which inhabit these enchanting islands.

You’ll sail in one of a pair of compact, identical craft: MVs Letty and Eric. They offer explorations of the Galápagos Islands for those who prefer to discover the islands from a small motor yacht rather than a large cruiser, but without sacrificing comfort or excellence. On board these well appointed yachts you'll have a proper nautical experience.
