Isabela II Galapagos Cruise | Motor Yacht




Yacht Class

De Luxe

Program Duration

5-15 Days


40 Guests


The Isabela II Galapagos Cruise motor yacht offers a more traditional style cruise experience, in terms of ship size and extra on-board facilities. This vessel offers space for up to 40 guests. With 3 naturalist guides on-board, expedition group sizes tend to be smaller than on the smaller yachts, with each guide typically leading 12-14 people rather than the standard 16. This is a larger ship, but is ecologically designed. Its per passenger carbon footprint remains low due to its sustainable technology, onboard water desalination, and wastewater treatment.

This ample vessel has multiple social areas, large cabins, multiple dining and cocktail areas, a library, cardio fitness center, and an amazing sundeck. If comfort is a priority then lets get you on-board, cruising in style, and enjoying all the great naturalist & wildlife spots.
