The ideal way to enjoy a private experience of these islands aboard a 105-foot twin screw steel-hulled brigantine with teak decks and beautifully designed interiors.

105 ft Steel-hulled Brigantine

For families or groups of friends looking for a once in a life time experience, few things can compete with sailing from island to island in the Galapagos with your own private yacht.

Because of the long distances involved, the only practical way to explore the Galapagos is by live-aboard boats which travel between islands. The journey is mostly at night and the boat makes different stops each day; usually two landings with plenty of time for swimming and snorkelling.

The importance of size of boat can’t be overstated.  The smaller the boat the more able she is to access the shallow anchorages that the large boats cannot, thus meaning island visits are relatively untroubled by other visitors.  The 12 berth Beagle is a long term favourite of ours.  

A rather beautiful 105 foot steel hulled brigantine with teak decks and comfortable interiors, an excellent chef and super guides.  Cabins have a double lower and single upper bed and private shower, wash basin and loo.  The majority of her cruises are one week, either the northwest islands or the south and central – and scattered through the year are two week itineraries visiting both sets of islands. 

Diving can be organised and snorkel gear is always on board.  She is ideal for a private charter for a group of friends or a couple of families or booked as a shared charter.

"I do recommend them."

Charles & Jo Mercey RT

"They were incredibly helpful with choosing which camps we should go to and they took extra time to learn about us as a family so that they could be most able to advise us...I found them extremely willing to answer any questions and always responded in an extremely quick manner. Our itinerary went exactly as outlined and was very comforting to have someone every step of the way who was there to facilitate our moves between camps. We felt very lucky to have seen the parts of Kenya that we did and we would have never been able to research enough to affect the same things on our own."

Best holiday and a true "once in a lifetime" experience

"I've been on many lovely holidays, but have never before had the ultimate luxury of such a personalised itinerary. Natural High Safari's attention to detail and total consideration of our particular requirements was quite simply brilliant! Our guide Joseph taught us more than we could ever have hoped, and my sons are looking forward to taking him on an English Safari, though we'll be sorely challenged to make it remotely as exciting and wonderful as the trip we had with him."
