Galapagos Evolution

Luxury

Galapagos Evolution

Both elegant and beautifully adorned, the 32-guest Galapagos Evolution Yacht fuses a nostalgic appearance similar to turn of the century steamboats with a modern, 21st century interior. From the outside, Galapagos Evolution is instantly recognizable with its tall sail masts, vintage-style wooden balconies and dramatic narrowing hull, while within, the cabin décor is decidedly contemporary, lounge areas are comfortable and an outdoor sundeck with Jacuzzi will surely keep you coming back for more. All of this, plus plenty of onboard excursion equipment, kayaks, dinghies and guides, help the Evolution stand out among the more unique luxury Galapagos cruise vessels.

EXCLUSIVE GALAPAGOS EXPERIENCE

With space for just 32 passengers, Evolution is certainly a boutique Galapagos yacht, a fact which enhances your experience of the archipelago no end. It means that there is a crew member for every two passengers, plus guides, so the service is always personal and excursions are intimate–there are no big group outings here! Then, between your Galapagos wildlife walks and snorkeling adventures, you also have plenty of space to unwind, either taking in the view from either of two sundecks, that irresistible Jacuzzi or the lounge bar; making for a gentler pace of life onboard the Galapagos Evolution Yacht.

FAMILY-FRIENDLY GALAPAGOS BOAT

With slightly larger than average cabins available, comfortably fitting up to three or four people, the Galapagos Evolution is a good family-friendly option if travelling with the kids. Little ones will also love the games console room and tailored menu, plus certain excursions can be geared up towards sharing them with children, such as the two-person kayaks, child-friendly guides, special stargazing lessons and Explorers Kids Club too. What’s more, if traveling as a large or extended group, the entire Galapagos Evolution can be chartered privately, for something extra special.

IDEAL FOR couples and families
