Passengers: 20
Ship Type: Motor Yacht

Aboard this 88 ft. expedition vessel, you will enjoy comfort and class. While bigger than many of the yachts in the Galapagos, with occupancy for up to 20 passengers, the Galaven I still manages to provide that intimate atmosphere so important to a Galapagos experience. Between the three ample decks, there is plenty of space to relax and enjoy the quiet island ambience as you navigate through this gorgeous archipelago. The upper deck features a dining room, bar, and lounge/library, and the sun deck is a great place to soak in the sun on the big deck chairs. 

On your daily excursions, your bilingual guide will accompany you as you snorkel, hike, and explore the pristine natural environment of the Islands. Then, at the end of the day you can look forward to great food and comfortable accommodations, each cabin complete with a private bathroom with hot water and air conditioning.

Beyond expectations! Then again we weren't sure what to expect. Lovely stay at the lodge, met other like-minded travelers (many had their trips planned by Adventure Life) and the owner was a gracious hostess. It felt like you were one happy family, visiting with a favorite aunt.
