Responsible luxury Eco Galaxy II is one of the latest generation of super-stable, purpose-built luxury cruise catamarans. However, what sets her apart from many in her class is her absolute commitment to sustainability and environmental protection. Launched in 2015, Eco Galaxy II was designed from the ground-up to set new standards in ecotourism. Boasting the lowest fuel consumption of any equivalent boat cruising the Islands today, Eco Galaxy II’s sustainability goes far beyond fuel efficiency as she also contributes directly to local schools, foundations and projects.

First Class accommodation Strictly limited to 16 passengers on board, her 8 staterooms are nothing short of magnificent. Crisp white walls and high-gloss ceiling finishes are tastefully softened by fabrics and furnishings in neutral shades, inspired by the habitats you will see through the magnificent panoramic windows. Beautiful furniture and wildlife-inspired artworks are brought to life by the light that spills into the spaces. All rooms feature 110V and 220V outlets for your convenience.

Charming en suite bathrooms feature powerful hot water showers, and are stocked with luxury biodegradable shampoos, body washes and soaps. All faucets on board are of water-saving design. Hair dryers are provided for your convenience.

Stunning ambiance Communal spaces throughout the boat are just as stunning as the staterooms. Outside, the ample sundeck offers elegant sofas in the shade, or modern recliners for worshipping the sun. Inside, effortlessly stylish modern finishes reflect light everywhere, whilst sumptuous fabrics and furnishings soften the crisp lines with pastel shades reflecting colors of land, sea and sky. The overall effect is one of cool, calm, luxurious comfort.

Amenities include a wonderfully stocked bar, TV and DVD system, guest library, and more of those wonderful panoramic windows. The dining room next door is no less delightful, and with only 16 guests dinners take on a welcoming and relaxed “family” feel - a chance to share wonderful food and remarkable experiences with new friends.

High cuisine with high ethics A particular feature of Eco Galaxy II’s sustainable ethos is her kitchen’s insistence on only using the finest locally sourced ingredients, ensuring a direct support for the Island population. This wonderful produce is turned into a mouthwatering array of Ecuadorian and international fine dining experiences, with the freshest seafood and organic fruits and vegetables a speciality

Finally, the owners and crew of Eco Galaxy II don’t stop their environmental efforts where you can’t see them - this is a truly ecologically sound operation. The boat reuses almost all of its water: once it has been treated it’s used to wash the decks and hull. All light fittings are energy saving LED throughout. All housekeeping products are biodegradable, and there are no toxic refrigerants used on board. Finally, every 3 months all crew and staff receive refresher training on customer service, conservation of the islands and habitats and awareness of the risks of exotic species invasion.

Our Comments Eco Galaxy II is the proof that luxury tourism can be sustainable and ecologically sound. We love the fact that the eco-credentials of Eco Galaxy II are much more than skin deep - and whilst enjoying the fact that we are supporting these endeavours we can’t help but be wowed by the stunning interiors of Eco Galaxy II. Of course style is a matter of personal taste, but we think this might be the most stunning decor in the whole Galápagos…

Sustainability on board the Eco Galaxy II

At Galapatours we love and respect the pristine ecosystems and fascinating wildlife of the Galápagos Islands, and we insist that our cruise partners do too. To protect the archipelago all our cruise vessels must have sophisticated water filtration systems, modern efficient engines, and strict maintenance schedules to minimize pollution.

The Galápagos National Park authority also defines exact cruising routes that dictate which ships can visit highlights at specific times, as well as limiting passenger numbers. These measures ensure that animals and habitats are not disturbed by too many visitors.

But at Galapatours we like to go even further. We voluntarily offset all the CO2 emissions of every cruise we sell - at no cost to you. And you can also play your part by traveling responsibly and following our Eco Guidelines during your stay. Click here to find out more about these guidelines, our commitment to sustainable tourism, and the Galápagos National Park rules.

Food & Drinks on board the Eco Galaxy II

The food on our Galapágos Cruises is among the very best you will find in South America. Most of the on-board chefs are internationally trained and have prior experience working in the best hotels and restaurants in Ecuador and indeed around the world.

You can expect a first-class selection of food, including a good variety of fresh fruits and vegetables, locally sourced poultry and fish/seafood, rice and pasta dishes. Most boats will always include some typical Ecuadorian dishes on the menu during your cruise. If you have specific dietary requirements then these can usually be accommodated by the chef providing you have given advance notice. Please make sure you tell us about any allergies or dietary requirements you have at the time you book with us. If you leave it until you arrive at the dockside, then it may well be impossible to accommodate your needs.

Most boats serve a range of options at meal times in a relaxed buffet-style. At the first class and luxury end of the market, some boats have more formal dining where you will be served at your seat. However the atmosphere is always relaxed on board our cruises, and never stuffy or formal.

Reviews of Eco Galaxy II

5/5

We had a fabulous time and the catamaran exceeded our expections Our family of 16, ages 10-77, has just returned from a week aboard the Galaxy II. We had a fabulous time and the catamaran exceeded our expections. All of us were sad when the visit was over. The entire crew worked very hard to care for us, their guests. The food was abundant and delicious. Our rooms were refreshed and clean. Our naturalist guide, Carlos Palma, was superb. He was relaxed, fun, kept us moving without rushing us and took every opportunity to make sure we saw the animals and geography of the western islands. Any person or group would be fortunate to have him as a guide.

There were many special moments on the cruise. Two whales, a sperm and a fin. A visit from Neptune, compliments of the crew when we crossed the equator. Delicious juices and treats after each snorkel or land visit. A game of charades with some of the crew participating. Swimming with turtles, penguins, rays. Having the frigate birds catch the draft of Galaxy II. Watching pelicans and boobies dive for dinner. Beautiful beaches and stark lava fields. And, when not watching all of this there were wonderful moments to read or watch spectacular sunsets.

The crew of the Galaxy II was excellent. I wish I could name and compliment them each. They deserve it.

We would love to return, aboard the Galaxy II with the same crew and the same naturalist to tour the rest of the islands in the future. May it be !
