Isabela II Yacht
'A special yacht to explore a special place', Yacht Isabela II promises a complete immersion in the unique world of the Galapagos Islands, a 'living laboratory of evolution'.
The yacht offers enriching wildlife encounters whether amid the islands' haunting volcanic landscapes or beneath the waves of its marine reserve, all in the company of passionate, dedicated and expert naturalist guides. The islands' marine life can be appreciated with a snorkel and mask, padddling a kayak or aboard the yacht's glass-bottom boat.
Special interest, such as photography and geology, trips are also offered. During the week-long itinerary (3- and 4-night itineraries are also available), all the highlights of the islands are covered in a balanced way. The crew has remained virtually unchanged for years, creating an excellent sense of teamwork and dedication, and a warm welcome for all. On board, guests find delicious cuisine, faultless service, and excellent facilities.
The classic Yacht ISABELA II offers the most in-depth week itinerary (Tuesday to Tuesday) allowing guests to enjoy all that Galapagos is famous for: from ancient giant tortoises to penguins, from sleek flamingos to bold sharks, from bizarre flightless cormorants to rugged marine iguanas, and from whales and dolphins to dramatic island volcanoes and breathtaking scenery, plus the exploration of the Galapagos Marine Reserve (the second largest in the world) on kayaks, the glass bottom boat, swimming or snorkeling.
The expert English-speaking Naturalist Guides transmit their enthusiasm to their guests when discussing geology or bird watching, snorkeling or stargazing, evolution or marine activities. Guests of ISABELA II have the opportunity to explore the Ecuador Galapagos islands in small groups with fellow enthusiasts who share their same passion for nature, curiosity and spirit of observation.
Her crew has remained virtually unchanged for years, their dedication, attention to detail and passion for service touching every one of her guests.
