Isabela II

The exquisite yacht Isabela II offers the perfect, intimate space for exploring the Galapagos Islands in comfort, elegance and an atmosphere directed towards a more traditional travel style. Traditionalists will enjoy feeling at home with a crew that has remained almost unchanged for years, leading to seamless attention to detail that will make your stay extra special. With just 20 guest cabins, the yacht’s convivial atmosphere leads to a close-up experience of this unique world. Onboard, guests are treated to delicious cuisine, faultless service and excellent facilities, including a hot tub, fitness room, bar and outside deck for al fresco meals, drinks and sunbathing.

CORDON BLEU GASTRONOMY DIRECTOR

Gourmet meals, BBQ and al-fresco dining are all orchestrated by a Cordon-Bleu gastronomy director. Five star cuisine can make all the difference while out at sea and the staff of the Isabella II are carefully selected to create a culinary experience of a lifetime.

INTIMATE AND EDUCATIONAL EXPERIENCE

With small groups averaging just 13 guests or less per guide, you will be guided by an experienced, tightly-honed crew with an excellent sense of teamwork and dedication. State-of-the-art technology for multimedia presentations and natural history lectures coupled with an onboard library, two naturalist guides and one expedition leader create an experience of the Galapagos that is both educational and personal. The library contains a large selection of books on Galapagos and Ecuador, as well as excellent nature and conservation videos, making this reference library the most complete of all Galapagos vessels. Sea kayaks, pangas (dinghies) and a glass bottomed boat are available for coastal exploration of a world unlike any other.

IDEAL FOR travelers wanting a mid-size expedition vessel known for its consistently good guiding and engaging short and long itineraries
