When choosing your Global CommUnity Galapagos itinerary you can choose between the elegant 18 passenger M/Y Grace, an authentic classic adventure yacht for those seeking to explore the Galapagos in true style. Her history includes distinguished service in the British Navy during WWII and a pedigree that lays claim to ownership by tycoons, industrialists and royalty. Or sail on the M/V Evolution where the golden age lives on today and the destination is designed to be experienced as a voyage through one of the world’s most remarkable natural wonders, the Galapagos archipelago. From the rich wood paneling and brass appointments of the dinning saloon, to the rattan furnishings of the outdoor sky lounge under shade, the 32 passenger M/V Evolution is designed to evoke warmth and richness, while providing all the modern comforts and amenities, including a state of the art navigation system.
If you only have a week to spend in the Galapagos you will be happy to know that there is no better or worse itinerary, just different. We continue to receive rave reviews for both itineraries aboard both our yachts. Passengers continue to have amazing animal encounters while experiencing the depth and breadth of what the islands offer including top notch landing sites on all itineraries.
