Isolated 900 km (559 mi) west of Ecuador, the Galapagos Islands is a showcase of biodiversity and unique wildlife species that inspired Darwin’s theory of evolution. Setting course June 2024, our all-new 38 m (124 ft) expedition yacht seeks to exclusively explore the Galapagos’ diverse islands uncovering all its wild creatures. With only 12 guests on board, our elevated guest-to-staff ratio makes the Galapagos Explorer the most exclusive yacht operating in the islands. From tailored dining experiences to curated water and land experiences, our dedicated team continuously goes beyond the expected, offering a level of personalised service and attention to detail like no other.
With expert interpretation from specially trained and dedicated guides, there are two 7-night set departure itineraries available exploring either the east or west islands of the archipelago. From up-close encounters with iconic species such as the giant Galapagos tortoise and blue-footed boobies to snorkelling in pristine waters teeming with endemic marine life, every voyage is a thrilling adventure of exploration and discovery.
On board the Galapagos Explorer, natural materials and rich textures celebrating local culture harmonise to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere, with wooden accents and neutral colours seen throughout. Panoramic floor-to-ceiling windows fill the spacious guest areas with natural light, providing breathtaking views of the ever-changing landscapes and wildlife wonders of the Galapagos. Indoor and outdoor dining and lounge areas ensure guests are spoilt for choice. While the yacht’s al fresco sundeck located on the uppermost deck boasts a decadent hot tub and comfortable lounge area ideal for whiling away the afternoon. Meticulously appointed air conditioned accommodation includes four beautiful cabins and two exquisite suites, featuring either portholes or windows. Ensuite bathrooms with luxurious showers and vanities complete the space.
