When Do You Want To Go?


  • Great value cruise to the Galapagos Islands
  • A range of itineraries to choose from across the Islands
  • Large Sun Deck to enjoy the beautiful surroundings

The Xavier III ideally combines good value and great service together for exploring the Galapagos Islands. Comfort is key aboard the Xavier III and you will have plenty of room to relax whether you are enjoying a drink in the lounge and bar area, having a meal in the interior dining room after a day filled with excursions or taking a nap in one of the sun chairs on the deck whilst enjoying the beautiful surroundings. The restaurant onboard offers tasty local cuisine as well as a variety of international dishes made fresh every day.

With a capacity of just 16 passengers, you will be well looked after during your time in the Galapagos as the yacht carries a team of 7 crew members and one certified Naturalist guide well-versed in the local wildlife and geography of the islands.  The ship has 8 cabins in total with 4 on the upper deck featuring a picture window and 4 on the lower deck with a porthole. The ship also provides snorkelling equipment, wetsuits and beach towels at no extra charge. 

In our opinion:

“Great value ship with plenty of space and a friendly staff”
