Galapagos Expedition Cruise
The perfect family trip? We think this is a strong contender for that title. Where else will you see creatures as varied as ancient giant tortoises, penguins, sleek flamingos, bold sharks, bizarre flightless cormorants, rugged marine iguanas and dolphins and all of this against dramatic island volcanoes and breathtaking scenery. The Galapagos Islands are truly a place of wonder and excitement, bound to appeal to all ages. The motor yachts Eric and Letty are two identical yachts custom-designed for Galapagos cruising. These superior first-class 25-meter motor yachts depart every Sunday on comprehensive seven-night itineraries including the outer, most spectacular islands in the archipelago.
The small guide-to-passenger ratios (one expert guide for every ten passengers) ensure highly personalized service and up close visits on shore. We recommend these vessels for active travellers who enjoy a small ship ambiance and relish the highly personalized service that this intimate setting provides.
