Treasure of Galapagos

GENERAL DESCRIPTION

Our stable seaworthy catamaran is considered one of most intimate cruise options at present for the Galapagos Islands. It is the perfect choice if you appreciate private comfort or if you dread seasickness; whether travelling on your own or for your romantic getaway! The inviting ambience of your comfortable cabin with inspiring sea views, and a maximum number of only 16 international guests, may turn your naturalist cruise into a personal experience.

Optimal use of your short time in the Galapagos

Our active naturalist cruise programmes are the most efficient way to make optimal use of your scarce time on the Galapagos Islands; combining evening or nocturnal displacements with at least two excursions per full day; and usually even an extra activity such as a dinghy-ride or snorkelling. These activities are conducted by the best English-speaking naturalist guides.

 Alternative island-based day tours (‘island hopping programmes’) lose a lot of time in moving back and forth, often by uncomfortable speedboat, and can generally only visit one closer site a day (at noon). Meanwhile the Treasure of Galapagos heads for more exclusive destination and shows its passengers twice as much in the same time. Also, large expedition vessels can’t enter the shallow paradisiacal bays where we drop the anchor.

It is true that the most exceptional islands are somewhat further away, but these are also more exclusive, beyond the reach of day tours. These distances are no problem for both powerful engines of Treasure of Galapagos, reaching the next site before sunrise (Routes A and B often even before midnight!). You will wake up feeling refreshed and full of energy to start a brand new day full of unforgettable experiences.

Bringing nature even more to life

Without doubt your on-board naturalist guide is the crucial pivot for your experience in the Galapagos. Being a first-class yacht, Treasure of Galapagos contracts only the best National Park certified guides (Class III or II). Our experts use their extensive experience to lead the excursions, to search and identify species and point out interesting details; besides taking care of your safety and compliance of indispensable conservation rules.

Above all our guides share their knowledge, love and respect for the Galapagos’ stunning ecosystem. Their inspiring explanations (in English and Spanish) and fascinating stories about animal behaviour, intriguing ecosystems and survival strategies can bring nature even more to life; not only in the field, but also during lectures or daily briefings aboard. Of course you can consult your guide for personal questions or just to share your curiosity.

Enjoy a more intimate nature experience

Small groups definitely make your nature and cruise experience more intimate and profound. Thanks to a maximum number of only 16 passengers aboard M/C Treasure of Galapagos, your naturalist guide can easily respond to different individual interests. You can also hear him/her loud and clear in the field.

Both our smaller inflatable dinghies (‘Zodiacs’ for only 8 passengers each) make boarding and disembarking our catamaran much faster, and increases your chances to spot wildlife during dinghy-rides. On larger expedition vessels different groups have to keep a certain distance, and lose flexibility and valuable excursion time on the islands.

Route & season determine what you will get to see

Unique to the Galapagos Islands is that every island harbours distinctive wildlife, and offers varying landscapes and climate zones.

So which wildlife and what animal behaviour you get to see depends largely on the season and which islands you visit. Each of our three fascinating itineraries gives a different, but excellent impression of the Galapagos.

Needless to say that our catamaran also explores the fringes of the archipelago. Exclusive islands such as Española, Isabela and Fernandina are pristine and let you witness evolution. Thanks to their isolated location its natural residents have evolved completely independently into new, sometimes bizarre creations.
