Completed in 2016, the Natural Paradise is one of the youngest vessels cruising in Galápagos. Designed and built specifically for the purpose, Natural Paradise will delight you with her wonderful open communal areas, gorgeous sun deck, and light-filled rooms. Featuring every facility you can imagine, the Natural Paradise has also been fitted with stabilizers – this brings you one of the most comfortable cruising experiences in the Galápagos with even more stability than catamarans for your sailing comfort.

The decor throughout Natural Paradise is modern and crisp and yet warm and welcoming. Beautiful artwork throughout the boat reflects some of the natural wonders you’ll see on your adventure, and furnishings and fittings are of the highest quality and are immaculately presented.

A range of staterooms and suites are available, giving you maximum choice. All feature en suite bathrooms with incredible showers and luxury L’Occitane cosmetics, hair dryers, and stunning sea views. For those who are looking for a little more luxury, two junior suites are available with California King beds and private balconies as well as splendid full suites with King beds, private terraces and over 3552 ft of private space.

With a maximum of 16 passengers on board and yet a crew of 10, Natural Paradise offers unrivalled levels of service. As well as being chosen for their eye for detail and immaculate presentation, crew members are warm and welcoming and provide a real home-from-home feel – there are smiles everywhere on Natural Paradise!

Food is freshly prepared on board and features a great range of dishes, including local specialities and fantastic seafood. The sun deck barbecue and dining table provides some memorable informal dining experiences. Coffee, teas, ice, and water are available 24 hours whenever you require and the crew always provide you with welcome snacks on returns from excursions.

A wonderful, brand-new, purpose-built vessel that makes for a breathtaking Galápagos cruising experience. A range of accommodation means there’s something for everyone, and the luxurious yet informal feel makes for remarkable, intimate communal experiences as well as decadent private time relaxing in your suite. Natural Paradise has raised the bar for new vessels in the area.

Sustainability on board the Natural Paradise

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 Natural Paradise

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.

Finally got to complete our trip to the Galapagos Islands which was canceled days before we were to set off in March of 2020 due to the Covid pandemic. Finally, two years later we were ready to set off again and Galapatours were very helpful in working with us and our needs to rescheduling our cruise itinerary. All in all it was well worth the wait as we got to experience nature and the unique wildlife that you will never see anywhere else in the world. What a trip

Wir sind mehr als zufrieden Hallo Babett, wir sind nun in Bolivien und geniessen die Ferien. Die Kreuzfahrt war ein super Erlebnis. Die Natural Paradise ist ein sehr schönes Boot und die Besatzung ist sehr entgegenkommend und hilfsbereit. Das Essen, der Service die Unterkunft übertraf unsere Erwartungen. Der Guide war ein Lexikon. Unglaublich was er wusste. Mit ihm war jeder Ausflug ein Erlebnis. Wir fühlten uns zu jedem Zeitpunkt super betreut und gut aufgehoben. Auch die anderen Teilnehmer waren sehr angenehm, es war eine harmonierende Gruppe, was den Aufenthalt und die Unternehmungen noch angenehmer machten. Wir sind rundum zufrieden. Unsere Erwartungen wurden übertroffen. Natürlich hat das herrliche Wetter, die Natur und vor allem die Vielfalt und die Nähe zu den Tieren an Land und im Wasser sein Übriges zu der guten Stimmung beigetragen. Man kann diese Reise besten Gewissens weiterempfehlen. Wir bedanken uns recht herzlich bei Dir für Deine gute Beratung und Unterstützung und wünschen Dir eine schöne Zeit Liebe Grüsse Gabi und Karlheinz

Diese Tour war extraordinär! Mein Mann und ich waren auf der Natural Paradise für die 8-Tages Kreuzfahrt. Das Schiff ist in einem tollen Zustand. Die Besatzung ist professionell und weiß genau was sie tut, sie hatten alle stets ein Lächeln auf dem Gesicht und waren immer und überall präsent. Diese Tour war wirklich extraordinär. Für Passagiere, deren Magen etwas empfindlich ist, empfehle ich die Tabletten aus der Apotheke für die Nacht. Quelle: https://goo.gl/fXKm7k

This trip was out of this world extraordinary! My husband and I went on an 8 day cruise on Natural Paradise. We were the 3rd cruise. Yacht is shiny and new. Staff r all professional, smiley, accommodating and present everywhere. This trip was out of this world extraordinary! No regrets just bring Dramamine. I took a 1/2 a pill every night. Since it's not a ship, u will feel rocking a bit more on this boat. Feedback from: https://goo.gl/fXKm7k
