This traditional, single-hull motor yacht has been beautifully designed to offer the most relaxing cruise experience in first class surroundings. Built in 2007, Galaxy has modern features and fittings with a sumptuous hand-crafted decor with a traditional flavour. Although capable of carrying 19 passengers, we choose to limit numbers to 16 - keeping your journey aboard Galaxy more intimate and personal than a larger vessel can provide.

Stellar comfort Galaxy’s 7 staterooms and 2 single cabins provide light and airy accommodation, all with ocean views and private en suite bathrooms. Tasteful neutral decor creates a soothing ambiance in which to relax and sleep before waking refreshed for the new day’s excursions.

Spread across all 3 decks, every stateroom is air conditioned and includes thoughtful extras like hair dryer, internal telephone, and personal safe. Luxurious towels and quality bed linens add the finishing touches to these delightful bedrooms.

Wonderful views, wonderful ambiance The outside communal areas take Galaxy above others in her class. The large and beautiful wooden decks provide ample room to find a cosy corner. Sofas and loungers mean comfort is never far away. The upper sun deck has both welcoming shade and open skies - perfect for soaking in the sun or gazing at the stars.

Inside, the lounge with flatscreen tv, sound system and a library has amazing panoramic windows providing a constantly changing view of the Galápagos. Rich, sumptuous sofas let you relax totally whilst you simply enjoy being on board.

Dining on Galaxy is an experience in itself, and the buffet service in the elegant dining room allows you to sample the best of local and international cuisine in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. With 10 staff to 16 passengers including a bilingual naturalist guide, you can be assured of excellent levels of service and attention. Our bartender has a particular way with cocktails, so be sure to take advantage of his skills.

Luxury with responsibility
Galaxy is one of the few boats in her class to be awarded the Smart Voyager Certification. This prestigious accreditation is awarded in recognition of operating practices that reduce negative environmental impact of tourism in the Galápagos Islands. Galaxy has demonstrated her excellence in conservation of ecosystems, decreased risk of introduction of non-native species, continuing staff training programs, exemplary Quality Management systems and the best practices in waste management and security.

Our Comments We love the relaxed yet first-class atmosphere on board Galaxy - don’t forget to try a signature cocktail. She has some of the airiest staterooms in her class and we like that fact that she offers single accommodation. We’re always impressed with the friendly and attentive welcome we receive from her crew. We wholeheartedly support Galaxy’s drive for sustainability and we congratulate her on the award of Smart Voyager Certification.

Sustainability on board the Galaxy I

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.

Food & Drinks on board the Galaxy I

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.
