Our shortest routes give an excellent impression of this unique 'laboratory of evolution' in case you have little time, or if you are on a limited budget. However, you must understand that it would be impossible to see all the highlights in just a few days, although you will probably only visit the Galapagos once in a lifetime. Each island is distinctive and well worth a visit, with different landscapes and an ever-changing spectrum of adapted species.

Highlights


• The archipelago’s largest concentration of American flamingo in bird-rich wetlands.

• Fur seal groats & a unique tidal channel with white-tip reef sharks & rays.

• Fernandina & the isolated west-coast of Isabela let you witness evolution.

• Flightless cormorants, large marine iguanas and penguins.

Arrival at Baltra Airport and transfer in. You will have to pay your Galapagos National Park entrance fee and your luggage will be inspected. The most memorable part of the Charles Darwin Research Station will probably be the successful breeding centre and its celebrity ‘Lonesome George’.
Sullivan bay is incomparable to any other visitor’s site; setting foot at the recently solidified lava flow is like landing on the moon! This tiny volcano islet is just recently born out of fire. Enter its wild romantic setting of spatter cones and craters, and see the most famous panorama of the Galapagos.
North Seymour is another highlight of your cruise. In the archipelago’s most extensive seabird breeding colony you can walk at very short distance past frigatebirds and blue-footed boobies. Mosquera stands out for having one of the largest concentrations of Galapagos sea lions in the entire archipelago.
Popular South Plaza is not to be missed! This bizarre ‘Jurassic islet’ is the best place to see the emblematic ‘Galapagos dragons’, which crawl across it. Enjoy a leisurely afternoon in the lovely setting of Witch Hill’s crescent-shaped natural beach of soft powder sand.
The interpretation centre just outside Puerto Baquerizo forms the engaging supplement of your cruise. Assisted by the naturalist guide and some crew members, the dinghy will bring you and your luggage to San Cristóbal, where we will take the airport shuttle. Your guide will accompany you to the check-in counters in the departure hall. You will return home with stunning pictures and unforgettable lifelong memories!

Treasure of Galapagos

Vessel Type: Motor Catamaran

Passenger Capacity: 16

Lenght: 31.6 m

Built: 2009

Welcome to the Galapagos aboard our stable motor catamaran 

Our stable seaworthy catamaran is considered one of most intimate cruise options at present for the Galapagos Islands. It is the perfect choice if you appreciate private comfort or if you dread seasickness; whether travelling on your own or for your romantic getaway! The inviting ambience of your comfortable cabin with inspiring sea views, and a maximum number of only 16 international guests, may turn your naturalist cruise into a personal experience.

Bringing nature even more to life

Without doubt your on-board naturalist guide is the crucial pivot for your experience in the Galapagos. Being a first-class yacht, Treasure of Galapagos contracts only the best National Park certified guides (Class III or II). Our experts use their extensive experience to lead the excursions, to search and identify species and point out interesting details; besides taking care of your safety and compliance of indispensable conservation rules.

Above all our guides share their knowledge, love and respect for the Galapagos’ stunning ecosystem. Their inspiring explanations (in English and Spanish) and fascinating stories about animal behaviour, intriguing ecosystems and survival strategies can bring nature even more to life; not only in the field, but also during lectures or daily briefings aboard. Of course you can consult your guide for personal questions or just to share your curiosity.

Enjoy a more intimate nature experience

Small groups definitely make your nature and cruise experience more intimate and profound. Thanks to a maximum number of only 16 passengers aboard M/C Treasure of Galapagos, your naturalist guide can easily respond to different individual interests. You can also hear him/her loud and clear in the field.

Both our smaller inflatable dinghies (‘Zodiacs’ for only 8 passengers each) make boarding and disembarking our catamaran much faster, and increases your chances to spot wildlife during dinghy-rides. On larger expedition vessels different groups have to keep a certain distance, and lose flexibility and valuable excursion time on the islands.

Specially designed for First Class Galapagos cruising

This modern First Class yacht was built in 2009 and is well maintained (dry dock every second year).

It is equipped with two powerful engines that give a cruising speed of 9 knots (over 22 km/h; 13.5 mp/h). The crew’s quarters, kitchen and engines are hidden inside both hulls (Lower Deck).

 All this makes Treasure of Galapagos not too large to become impersonal, and not too small to feel trapped without comfort.

Leisure time in an inviting private ambience

Your impressive cabin resembles a floating hotel room with an ample bathroom, private balcony, sitting area, ample storing space, soft carpeting and regular beds.

This inviting private ambiance with inspiring sea views is an ideal place to withdraw for a while, after another impressive excursion (in contrary to common cramped and dark cabins with just a porthole and berths/bunk beds). You may easily forget the cosy living room and deck terraces with comfortable deck chairs and our hot tub!

Delicious food: to make your mouth water

Our professional cook and kitchen staff will treat you to a substantial breakfast, and mouth-watering warm lunches and dinners, all served in abundant buffet style.

The galley (kitchen) will keep surprising you with a varied menu of local and international dishes with at least two choices (usually fish, chicken or meat), rice/potatoes/pasta and various vegetables and salads.

Our food is healthy and delicious; special meals (vegetarian or other dietary requirements) are available upon previous request at no extra cost. Snacks and juices are served in-between meals.

Meanwhile our captain navigates safely to the next destination

Whilst carelessly enjoying the leisure ambience on-board, you can be rest assured that the captain and his competent crew continuously look after your safety on-board. They are always there to help you in and out safely when boarding and disembarking, or driving the inflatable dinghies (‘Zodiacs’) carefully.

Many zones of the Galapagos are near the end of the world and request self-sufficiency. As a matter of course all crew-members have first-aid knowledge.

Your naturalist guide and captain are trained to deal with eventual medical or other emergencies aboard. The bridge always maintains radio contact with the outside world.
