INFORMATION
Galapagos sea lion

The Isabela II is one of the most luxurious yachts cruising the Galapagos and offers an elegant, yet relaxed atmosphere in which to experience the Enchanted Islands.

The yacht is fully air conditioned; all cabins are spacious and have private bathrooms. Its three public decks offer the amenities of a larger vessel, including bar-salon, dining room and sun deck. The library contains a variety of books on Galapagos and Ecuador, as well as excellent nature and conservation videos.

From dining room to stateroom, one senses the superior quality at all levels of service. Isabela's trained chefs prepare a superb a-la-carte selection of meals. The helpful, warm staff attends to your every need.
The sun deck is comprised of a bar with ample outdoor seating, an observation area for whale and dolphin watching, a Jacuzzi and solarium. As an alternative to snorkeling, the glass-bottom boat offers another opportunity to observe the marine life.

The yacht Isabela was designed and built specifically for the longer 7-night Galapagos cruise expeditions and she will help you make the most of your Galapagos vacation. During the 7-night cruise itinerary no islands are visited twice.
