Welcome to your home in the Galapagos Islands! The Experience is a luxe vessel that offers incomparable service and comfort. The vessel is able to accommodate up to 48 passengers in its 24 spacious staterooms. The best thing about the Experience is the fact that it is big enough to travel the Pacific and small enough to dock at remote docks and negotiate inter-island landings quick and gracefully. Passengers are able to enjoy the generous accommodation of a larger vessel while having the atmosphere and exclusivity of a smaller yacht. Therefore, the Experience is perfect for travellers that prefer intimate and comfortable atmosphere and a vigilant service of a smaller boutique vessel to a larger cruise ship. You can enjoy the open-air spaces, comfortable cabins and spectacular al fresco dining. Step onboard The Experience and follow Charles Darwin’s footsteps with us!

ITINERARIES

When visiting the Galapagos Islands for one week there are tradeoffs regarding the landing sites you can and can’t see, in a place where one can encounter as great a variation crossing from one side of a bay or island to another, as traversing the entire archipelago. This has always been the case. Recently the Galapagos National Park decided to reduce the environmental impact on its 40 + visitor landing sites by requiring that yachts wait 14 days before returning to a given National Park visitor site. As a result of this ruling each of our yachts will operate different itineraries. 

If you only have a week to spend in the Galapagos you will be happy to know that there is no better or worse itinerary, just different.
