Measuring 166 feet in length, this deluxe yacht carries a maximum of 40 passengers on four- and six-night excursions to the Galápagos Islands. The boat has a formal dining room, two bars, and a reading room stocked with natural history books, as well as a staff of trained naturalists who give onboard lectures. Covering a different island almost every day, the itinerary typically includes kayaking, swimming, snorkeling, and glass-bottom boat tours of the Galápagos Marine Reserve (the second-largest in the world). In addition to the ancient Galápagos tortoises, guided hikes often provide glimpses of penguins, flightless cormorants, and marine iguanas.

Insider Tip:

Be aware that you’ll have to pay a Galápagos National Park admission fee of approximately $100 per person, which is not included in the cost of the cruise.
