Galapagos Aboard the Eclipse
Galapagos Aboard the Eclipse

The Eclipse is a perfect base for any Galapagos experience: a generously proportioned ship with a small yacht atmosphere. Ever since her arrival in 1999, the Eclipse has been considered the finest boutique cruise ship in the Galapagos Islands, offering unparalleled levels of comfort and service. She was converted specifically for upscale cruising in the islands, and was designed to meet the exacting demands of luxury travel. Whether you are snorkeling with sea-lions, watching a blue-footed booby feed its young, or following a giant tortoise through the forest, the Galapagos Islands will surpass all expectations, and there is no better way to enjoy the wonders of the islands than on board the Eclipse. From your comfortable base aboard the Eclipse, you will be able to explore the islands’ best visitor sites. There are many opportunities to hike, swim, snorkel, bird-watch, and take great close-up photographs of the flora and fauna. For land visits, guests are divided into groups of a maximum of 12 people, each with its own naturalist guide. The Eclipse anchors off shore at two visitor sites per day, and passengers are ferried to landing points in small boats, locally called “pangas.” On the islands you follow marked trails, walking at a leisurely pace, with your guides explaining the unusual sights you see. Afterwards, there is often an opportunity to swim and snorkel before returning to the ship. Taking children to the Galapagos Islands is an immensely rewarding experience. For this reason, we offer selected family departures during the months of July, August, and December. Specialist guides educate and entertain the children throughout the day, while adults enjoy the cruise at your own pace, knowing that the children are in safe hands and making their own discoveries about the history of evolution and the wonders of the islands.

Galapagos Aboard the Alta & Parranda
Galapagos Aboard the Alta & Parranda

The Alta and Parranda are ideal for modern-day Galapagos explorers seeking the uniqueness and exclusivity of a small yacht, offering a full range of services with open air spaces to better enjoy the welcoming atmosphere of the islands. Alta is one of the most beautiful yachts in the Galapagos, a Three Masted Staysail Schooner, with that special charm of a sailing ship. Fitted with 8 tastefully decorated cabins that accommodate up to 16 passengers, each cabin has ample storage space and private bathroom facilities. The yacht offers many spots for relaxing or sunning on the spacious sundecks. When the conditions are appropriate, the sails will be hoisted and Alta will become the most enchanting yacht in the Galapagos. Please Note: Even with all the amenities, individual cabin space aboard a sailing vessel can feel limited. If you require something more spacious we recommend taking a look at the larger cabins on our other yachts so we can find the best fit for your needs. Parranda is an elegant, spacious motor yacht. She is great for travelers who want to experience the Galapagos in comfort and refinement. Fitted with stabilizers to make cruising more comfortable, she is fast, allowing for less time traveling between the islands and more time on exploration. The salon is ample and elegantly decorated, with large windows that allow a scenic view. Aft of the salon is the dining area, which is very pleasant because it is open towards the stern of the yacht. It also has a roof and windows on its sides, so that guests receive fresh air but are protected from the sun. The outside deck is extraordinary. Long and spacious, it has comfortable lounge chairs to read, sleep, or relax, and is entirely covered by a canopy to offer protection from the sun.

A few words from your guide: “I have worked with Journeys for many years and I am very pleased to be leading this trip. We observe animals to understand them, never on a rushed program. We work with conservationists, and we enjoy spending evenings with you discussing issues that affect conservation in Kenya, past, present and future. I know that leadership is the key for visitors to really know and earn a great appreciation of a destination. It is always my pleasure to share what Kenya has to offer. As a guide, I know I am Kenya's ambassador to the outside world and I promise to do my job with great care and sincerity.”
