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.

THE PERFECT TREK!

"Vanessa from Natural High Safaris provided a very responsive,personal and bespoke service which in turn led to a perfect trip, that was without fault! From our pack mules all the way up to our guide, Oulaid, it was outstanding. We were guided through the most beautiful and remote countryside to camp sites with the most awesome views. Oulaid had really thought about our route and request to be off the beaten track. It was a delight that we did not see any tourist for the whole trek. Our team were professional,hospitable and friendly, delivery a very well prepared and comfortable camp each evening.The camp chef did an amazing job bearing in mind the remoteness of our location, conjuring up very tasty and varied meals each day. If I could book another trip tomorrow I would.Next year beckons!Well done all!!"

I will definitely plan an expedition with this company again.

"They promptly provided an itinerary in response to our desires. Feedback on the plan was well received. Closer to the time we were connected with our guides to further hone our trip. A group of 5 women, arriving from various destinations, camping and lodges in the desert with extraordinary guides. Yes, the cliche works here...a trip of a lifetime."
