    Aboard Eric-Flamingo-Letty, Northern Circuit

    Cruise the best northern island sites, including Genovesa, on a 20-passenger yacht


    Two itineraries are offered to adhere to touring regulations established by the Galapagos National Park and Marine Reserve to limit tourist visits for the islands' health and recovery.  Take your pick between this and its companion tour of southern islands, based on your preferences and your dates, or if you want the complete Galapagos experience and have the time, take both!

    The fleet of three identical first-class motor-yachts, M/Y Eric, Flamingo I, and Letty, was custom-designed for Galapagos excursions, offering tremendous value for superior comfort. Two experienced English-speaking naturalist guides attend to the details of your Galapagos cruise. Each naturalist takes a group of no more than ten passengers on all shore excursions and shares extensive insights into the islands’ diverse wildlife. Stable rubber boats (Zodiacs), locally called pangas, ferry passengers to shore for island visits. These week-long, comprehensive itineraries visit the islands’ most spectacular sites to witness the unique plants and animals that have made these islands famous.

    Built in 1991 and refurbished every year, each 20-passenger yacht features ten double outside-facing cabins located on three decks with polished teak wood interiors and either windows or portholes. All of the yachts are fully air-conditioned, and all cabins have private bath facilities. Picture windows surround the upper two decks and offer spectacular panoramic views of ocean and islands. Enjoy sea breezes, sunny days, and starlit nights on lounge chairs and recliners located on the sun deck and observation points. Snorkeling equipment, custom wet suits, and sea kayaks are all available at no additional cost.

    During the months of June, July, August, and December, these ships offer special Galapagos departures for families with kids of elementary school age and older.

    The itinerary shown here is for the Flamingo and the Letty; the order of visits will vary slightly on the Eric.  Please contact us for details associated with your preferred travel dates.
