All cabins are air-conditioned, spacious and beautiful. Six state cabins are all equipped with private bathrooms and a luxurious bathtub while the VIP and Master suites feature two en-suite bathrooms.

NEVER USED FOR TOURISM BEFORE

Originally built as a private luxury yacht, the Passion has been completely refurbished with an emphasis on retaining many of its original, elegant features. Rose colored marble bathrooms and teak wood decks make the vessel a one of a kind classic, which can only offer a one of a kind experience. Never before used for tourism, the M/Y Passion has a gorgeously private and upscale feel, and effortlessly carries the legacy of her original name, Bellisima, which translates to “beautiful” in Italian. She makes a statement of grace, elegance and style, offering a classy and personal way to experience the exoticism the Galapagos.

CRUISING FOR A CAUSE

The M/Y Passion was purchased and refurbished by WildAid, “a nonprofit organization with the mission to end the illegal wildlife trade in our lifetimes. It focuses on reducing the demand for endangered species products by targeting consumers with engaging public service announcements and education initiatives.” There is simply no better way to become educated about the environment by visiting Galapagos Islands aboard the M/Y Passion, a journey that gives you an impression of what Earth was like 2 million years ago. We are proud to support WildAid by encouraging our travelers to explore Galapagos the eco-friendly way.

PERSONALIZED AND SPACIOUS

A ratio of one staff member per guest ensures first class service aboard the Passion. Measuring 159 feet (48.5 meters), she boasts four decks and an exceptional amount of space for only 12 passengers. Your experience will be customized by specialists in distinguished fields rather than traditional tour guides. Special interests such as photography or bird watching can be arranged with a local expert in each field to guide you through the region’s magical natural wonders.
