    Private

    BOAT
    CHARTERS

    the ultimate way to unlock the charms of the Galapagos' 20+ islands

     Maximize Privacy + Together Time

    with a private yacht or catamaran

    Having your own yacht or catamaran lets you explore, relax and savour each day at your own pace. Aboard your private yacht or catamaran, multiple indoor and outdoor spaces let your group spread out, your own chef caters to your group's tastes and food allergies, and we arrange expert guides to lead each day's adventures. We recommend a range of outstanding boats to our travelers. Some in our collection offer the height of luxury. There's no need to break the bank though. For a group of 8+, a private charter can match the cost of booking cabins on a shared boat. Talk to us.

    A Day Like This

    When you wake, you'll find your yacht has travelled over night to a new island. Enjoy breakfast on deck with views of a dramatic volcano, coastal beaches and frigate birds floating on air currents above.

    Morning Adventure

    Hop in a dinghy to go explore a coastal ecosystem up-close and at its most pristine. Interact with see marine turtles, sea lions and marine iguanas (also called sea dragons).

    Explore The Water

    Later in the morning get picked up from your boat by a scuba / snorkel master. You'll be taken to one of the top 3 places on the planet to be in the water. Delight in the brightly coloured fish and coral habitat. Good chance you'll some rays passing through, perhaps even dolphins.

    Lunch Under Blue Skies

    Head back to your boat where you'll enjoy a long lunch outside on your deck with dishes prepared to your culinary tastes. 

    Cruise to a Great Spot to See Orcas and Whales

    In the afternoon, your yacht or catamaran cruises to a new location where a small boat meets you. You and your group hop in and you're taken to see pods of orcas and whales. You'll be mesmerized by the amazing amount of life that visits your scene.

    Relax with a Dip. Then It's Dinner.

    End the day with an early evening dip in a protected bay. Dry off, shower, throw some fresh clothes on, then enjoy an expertly mixed cocktail with loved ones ..... and take in the salty air and sunset colours. Dinner is about to be served.
