OVERVIEW

The Galapagos Yacht Aqua is the ideal boat for divers and adventure seekers of all ages! It offers a unique combination of both. One-week liveaboards are offered every 14 days to the best dive sites in the archipelago. The liveaboards alternate with the naturalist cruises, which are also one week long or shorter. The yacht is thus one of the few ships that combine diving cruises with naturalist cruises. Experience the incomparable diversity of the Galapagos Islands above and under the water at the truly best price!

The Yacht Aqua offers room for up to 16 passengers in 9 comfortable cabins. Relax during the night in full-size double beds and during the day at the cozy solarium with loungers and stunning view when you are not on an adventurous excursion.
