Evolution

GENERAL DESCRIPTION

Experience the Galapagos in spacious comfort and privacy aboard a yacht that retraces the footsteps of Darwin. The Evolution yacht cruises the archipelago with the lines and style of the roaring of 20’s, while offering the finest amenities and service of modern times. 

The Evolution yacht was carefully crafted for guests to experience the islands through Darwin’s lense. Exclusively designed for 32, guests are immersed in wildlife encounters away from the crowds, guided by Naturalist Guides with 15+ years of local experience. Enjoy a sense of relaxed freedom on board with 360-degree exterior walkarounds, recently renovated spacious suites, and unparalleled familial hospitality.

The yacht features four categories of accomodation including a Master Suite. There are a total of six staterooms with two twin beds that can be configured as one king-size bed, six staterooms with queen beds, two staterooms with king beds and one stateroom with two twins.  All staterooms feature a wardrobe, individually controlled air conditioning systems, safety boxes and a private bathroom with shower.

The Evolution yacht features an inside lounge/presentation room, a stylish inside & al-fresco dining area, a well-stocked bar, a library, a coffee station, an al-fresco lounge, a hot tub and a solarium.  The yacht has 8 double kayaks (the maximum allowed by the Galapagos National Park), wetsuits and snorkeling equipment which all can be used free of cost and three dinghies (zodiacs) that are well suited for snorkeling, disembarking and wildlife watching.
