AIDA MARIA - GALLERY

Aida Maria

GENERAL DESCRIPTION

The Aida Maria is a small yet comfortable yacht, accommodating 16 passengers in 8 double rooms, each with their own private bathroom. Although smaller than First Class yachts, the Aida Maria makes up for this in its more economical price, whilst retaining the comfort and quality you would expect of a cruise in the Galapagos. You're bound to enjoy your stay on this diminutive yacht, owned and operated by a family associated with the Galapagos since the 1930s and running tours there since the 1960s.
