Eclipse Galapagos luxury yacht

EclipseThe Eclipse has surpassed most options available in the enchanted Galapagos Islands; she offers small excursion groups, extremely high levels of personalized service and the amenities of a larger boat while still preserving the relaxed exclusivity of a smaller vessel.

This expedition Vessel was converted specifically for cruising in the Galapagos Islands, and was designed to meet the exacting demands of upscale travelers. The Eclipse luxury yacht is the perfect base for any Galapagos travel experience; a generously proportioned ship with a small yacht atmosphere.

The Eclipse's features include a library, a boutique, a lounge and an infirmary, with a doctor on board at all times. One of the most popular areas on board is the observation/sun deck, ideal for stargazing, whale watching, or simply lazing in the Jacuzzi.In addition to the elegant indoor dining room, there is an al fresco dining area, where you can enjoy the islands' spectacular scenery. All meals are served as a buffet style with all soft drinks included.

Family departures:

The Galapagos Islands are truly a magical place. It is a destination where fun and education coexist seamlessly and it is therefore a wonderful, once in a lifetime experience for children. Because of this, we offer unrivalled fixed Family Departures.

Our Child Coordinator will prepare activities for kids throughout the week including special briefings, meal times and menus, educational activities, and much more. We prepare colorful, kid-friendly cabins and also give children special gifts throughout the week. When we have at least 10 children on board, they can even have their own guide during excursions.

On the Eclipse, children will get a Galapagos experience like no other in the archipelago.
