Yacht Isabela II offers the perfect, intimate space for exploring Darwin’s islands in comfort. Traditionalists will enjoy feeling at home with a crew that has remained almost unchanged for years, leading to seamless attention to detail that will make your stay extra special.
With just 20 guest cabins, the yacht’s convivial atmosphere leads to a close-up experience of this unique world. On board, guests find delicious cuisine, faultless service and excellent facilities, including a Hut Tub, fitness room, bar and outside deck for al fresco meals, drinks, and sunbathing.
Your groups can expect top facilities and equipment, delicious meals, and safe and stimulating expert-planned expeditions on the islands. Scout the island sites for Big 15 wildlife in groups that average no more than 11-14 guests per naturalist guide which surpass the National Park standard, which permits up to 16 guests per guide. Explore the coast with your guides on our pangas, glass-bottom boat or kayaks, or get wet and snorkel.
In 2018 Isabella II has undergone a 360-degree renovation. Our social areas have had some major changes. In our guest hallways, windows have been replaced and an aesthetic makeover will have our guests making their way about in a warm and modern atmosphere. Our library, which has also been beautified, has been enriched with new literature on natural history. Cabins have received an extreme makeover to provide greater comfort for our guests. In addition, we have listened to our explorers and acquired new expedition gadgets to make their trip a more enriching adventure.
