When Do You Want To Go?

First-Class Motor Yacht with Land & Sea Excursions

Enjoy a magical Galápagos cruise on the Tip Top IV, a first-class motor yacht offering both land and sea excursions. The remote Galápagos archipelago is home to some of the rarest wildlife, marine and birdlife in the world, and you can see most of it on a Tip Top IV cruise itinerary. Choose from 4, 5 or 8-day cruises taking in either the central and southern islands of Galápagos or the northern and central islands. All itineraries depart from Baltra and depending on which one you take, you could be visiting the Charles Darwin Research Station on Santa Cruz, hiking to lava tubes and geological formations of Isla Santiago or snorkelling with friendly penguins at Tagus Cove on Isla Fernandina! On-board the ship you can also utilise the expertise of a bilingual naturalist guide who can ensure you don’t miss any hidden gems of the Galápagos Islands.

On-board the Tip Top IV, dining is served in a spacious, yet relaxed dining area where you can mingle with like-minded travellers and exchange stories of your Galápagos adventure. Delicious meals are freshly prepared by an accomplished chef, featuring a range of local and international cuisine. Afterwards, enjoy a drink in the outdoor lounge seating area, indulge in a spot of bird or dolphin watching or discover how ancient mariners used to navigate these islands via the constellations.

Accommodations on Tip Top IV consist of 6 cabins on the lower deck and 4 cabins on the upper deck. Cabins are comfortably furnished yet equipped with everything you need for an enjoyable cruise. They each feature a private bathroom with hot and cold water, safety deposit box and storage space for luggage and souvenirs.
