Why Chartering in the Galapagos is Not Only for the Rich and Famous

By ~ Eric-Sheets 

At Latin Excursions, we take pride in making your journey a meaningful time with family and friends never to be forgotten. Visiting Galapagos Islands is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience Earth as it once was entirely before human civilization. Allow us to create an itinerary that is exactly catered to your interest. What better way than chartering a private yacht?

Charter a Yacht in the Galapagos Islands

Most people don’t know that there are small ship cruising options via small yachts and sailboats in the Galapagos that essentially cost the same amount for a family of 10 paying for small cabins on the boat.

The advantage of chartering a yacht is having absolute access to the right guide for your family, and not being shared with others or strangers, allowing us to customize an itinerary around your interest level in the Galapagos. The private time with family and friends is truly what makes this option unbeatable. Not to mention you are located on some of the most pristine and protected waters on the entire planet, completely away from any major noisy city.

Combine with a Land Tour or Machu Picchu Extension

Are you planning a journey to Machu Picchu, but also want to get a glimpse of the Galapagos? Considering the proximity and convenient flights from Lima to Guayaquil or Quito, chartering a private yacht is the perfect way to capture an all-encompassing glimpse of Darwin’s archipelago. Our expert Trip Designers are masters of crafting unique experiences catered to your interests, so allow them to help you select the perfect yacht and itinerary for your journey.

One way to keep costs down is to shorten the itinerary to 4 or 5 days, if you want to extend some land time in order to do more active adventures you can combine your yacht stay with a private villa, unique hotel, or even glamping stay! We recommend adding a few days before or after at the Galapagos Safari Camp or private Villa Amarilla.

Scuba Dive the Galapagos in Private

Another big advantage of chartering a yacht in the Galapagos is the option to have a professional diving team meet you and your group for the day (or multiple days at various locations)! The way it works is that we coordinate with our diving team and have them greet your yacht in the morning with a small dive boat, then they will take you to certain dive locations privately. Talk about exclusivity!

You can expect to see plenty of playful sea lions, if you’re lucky they might come do a dance for you and your crew!
