The Beagle is a magnificent, fully air conditioned, deluxe, 105 foot steel hulled schooner with teak deck and a luxurious interior. It was built in London, England in 1971.

This yacht offers an ample open and shaded deck space, delicious Ecuadorian cuisine served in the home-like salon or on deck, a multilingual guide, and legendarily superb service from captain and crew.

The crew offers a very high standard of personal service, with a multi-lingual naturalist guide licensed by The Galapagos National Park and the Charles Darwin Research Station.

Your naturalist guide will confer with the group every evening about the following day’s itinerary, to help you take full advantage of all that each unique visiting site has to offer.

Swimming and snorkeling can be an important part of your day, and Beagle carries a small stock of masks, snorkels, fins, and short wetsuits.
