Cruise Details
Passengers: 48
Ship Type: Expedition Cruise Ship

Discover the Galapagos Islands on board one of the finest expedition vessels available. Ever since her arrival in Ecuador, the Eclipse has surpassed the other options available in the Galapagos Islands, offering unparalleled levels of comfort and service. A 210 ft expedition vessel that accommodates up to 48 passengers in staterooms, each with a seaview, the Eclipse is the perfect base for any Galapagos experience; a generously proportioned ship with a small yacht atmosphere.

Whether you are snorkeling with sea lions, watching a blue-footed booby feed its young, or following a giant tortoise through the forest, the Galapagos Islands will surpass all expectations. And there is no better way to enjoy the wonders of the islands, than on board the Eclipse.

Amenities on board the Eclipse

All 48 passengers can be accommodated in one sitting in the spacious dining room. In addition to the elegant indoor dining room, there is an al fresco dining area located around the pool, where you can enjoy the islands' spectacular scenery over a delicious lunch. All soft drinks are complimentary on the Eclipse.

Activities on board the Eclipse
Star Gazing
Since Galapagos offers cloudless skies most of the year, stargazing should not be missed. There are nightly lectures on the top deck with visual aids to enhance the sightings (December to April).

Whale Watching
There is always the opportunity to whale-watch while traveling between the different islands, especially from June to September. However, the best chance of seeing whales is off the northwest coast of Isabela on Tuesday. An announcement will always be made if a whale is spotted.

Equator Crossing
On Wednesday afternoon, after the panga ride at Punta Vicente Roca, the Eclipse will cross the Equator. Passengers are welcome to go to the bridge and observe the GPS showing latitude 0º and join the crew afterwards for a delicious Sushi in the al fresco area.

Open Bridge Policy
Navigation lessons from the Captain and officers are available whenever the ship is anchored.

Entertainment
On Tuesday evening there will be musical entertainment after dinner.
