When Do You Want To Go?

An expedition around the Galápagos Islands on a schooner style sailboat is the adventure of a lifetime. The Beagle - named after Charles Darwin’s ship, allows you to experience the majesty of these remote islands in a comfortable, relaxed atmosphere with like-minded travellers. The Galápagos Islands lie 600 miles off the coast of Ecuador straddling the equator, offering a unique habitat for rare species of wildlife, marine and birdlife. Daily flights from Quito will transport you in 1.5 hours to Baltra Island, where you will join the Beagle for your chosen itinerary. Choose a northwestern islands cruise route which takes in Isla Genovesa, Isla Isabela - home to the famous Tortoise Breeding Centre and Isla Fernandina. Alternatively, select an itinerary which covers the central and south islands of Galápagos. This trip gives you time to explore the Charles Darwin Research Station - a breeding centre for giant tortoises, marine iguanas and rare plants, while also stopping off at Isla Floreana, Española, San Cristobal, Santa Fe and Bartolomé islands. An onboard naturalist can answer all your questions pertaining to the history of the archipelago, its wildlife and terrain, and as an added bonus you can borrow snorkels and kayaks from the Beagle to explore even further!

Onboard the Beagle, meals are served in the outside dining area.  The schooner caters to all your meals and snacks and to specific dietary requirements. A well-stocked bar serves a selection of coffee, tea and soft drinks, plus beer, wine and cocktails which can be purchased at an additional charge. After lunch or dinner, head to the observation or sun deck for dolphin or bird spotting, read a book in the library or play fun board games with family and friends.

The Beagle can house 14 passengers in 7 air-conditioned cabins. Six of the cabins feature a double lower bunk and single upper, en-suite hot water shower and flushing toilet. The seventh cabin has single bunk beds, en-suite facilities and can sleep one or two people.
