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 Main Deck features a dining room, bar, and lounge/library, and the Upper 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.

The trip might have been the absolute best of our lifetime (thus far). We particularly want to commend our guide Peter in the Guilin area-he was so incredibly attentive, energetic, enthusiastic-and absolutely dedicated to ensuring that our meals were 100% vegetarian.
