Luxury Cruises
Here are some of our most popular destinations


Our luxury cruises through the Galapagos archipelago offer tours in which you can enjoy the maximum in boutique-level comfort and high-end personalized service in complete safety while exploring these paradisiacal islands of Ecuador.

We offer ships in two distinct categories: larger cruise ships accommodating 48 to 100 passengers; and smaller high-end 16-18 passenger motor-sailors and motor-yachts.

While the larger cruise ships offer extra spaciousness as well as stability (meaning less rocking for those who lack their "sea legs"), the more romantic, swifter and more intimate modern sailboats and motor yachts make it easier for personal contact with your shipmates and your guide; plus these are more maneuverable vessels that can access certain sites that the larger ships are unable to navigate.

Despite the varying sizes, all of these luxury vessels provide deluxe accommodations, kitchens that serve the finest in international and Ecuadorian cuisine, the highest quality in personal attention and service, the very best naturalist guides, amazing itineraries and relaxed recreational areas with sun decks and/or pools.

Your only concern will be enjoying your journeys at sea and on the islands.
