  • Traditional first class motor yacht;
  • Stunning panoramic views from all cabins;
  • Superb social areas, including Jacuzzi on the sundeck for decadent relaxation;
  • Packed itinerary, at least two site visits per day, includes kayaking.

The Motor Yacht Galápagos Odyssey combines the traditions and service of a classic first class yacht with a modern and stylish design that's a wonderful place to stay while exploring the islands. Completely refurbished in 2014, Odyssey boasts spacious cabins that feature individual air-conditioning, a small desk, sofa, mini-bar, and closet, as well as spacious bathrooms with shower cabins. Picture windows in each cabin give you stunning views of the Galápagos.

Odyssey's social areas are inviting and luxurious, with plenty of space to enjoy some downtime or to gather and listen to your experienced naturalist guide brief you on the wide range of excursions you will enjoy. Outside space is plentiful, and you can soak up the Galápagos sun on one of the sundeck's comfortable loungers, or even in the outdoor Jacuzzi while enjoying a cocktail.

With indoor and outdoor dining areas, you'll enjoy wonderful meals cooked with fresh local ingredients with your fellow guests. A range of wines, beers and cocktails is available from the well-stocked bar. The highly experienced crew of 9 will attend to your every need and make your stay on board a memorable one.

There are a range of naturalist itineraries to choose from, and each offers at least 2 excursions per day. Odyssey also carries 8 tandem kayaks providing additional opportunities to enjoy the Galápagos up close.

Our comments We really enjoy the "classic" motor yacht ambience of Odyssey, and her recent refit has turned her into one of the most spacious and comfortable boats in her class. Her extra size means you get "big ship" amenities like kayaks for all passenger, Jacuzzi, and really spacious cabins, and yet the intimacy of a maximum of only 16 guests at a time. Odyssey really is a first class way to see exactly what the Galápagos has to offer.

Sustainability on board the Odyssey

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 Odyssey

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 Odyssey

5/5

Die Odyssey war eine ausgezeichnete Wahl Galapagos: die Odysee war eine ausgezeichnete Wahl. Wir waren schon auf unterschiedlichsten Booten auf Flüssen und Hochsee, daher haben wir gute Vergleiche. Das Interieur ist modern, angenehme Atmosphäre in allen Bereichen. Geräumige Kabinen, ungewöhnlich großes Bad (insbesondere die Dusche!). Besatzung gut, Küche (Büffetform), eher Hausmannkost, aber sehr gut zubereitet. Sehr vielfältiges Ausflugsprogramm, sehr aktiver Guide, auch viele Schnorchelmöglichkeiten. Die Route ist abwechslungsreich und ebenfalls zu empfehlen. ACHTUNG: Am Ausschiffungstag hatten wir einen Nachmittagsflug gewählt um sicher den Ausflug zu den Riesenschildkröten ins Hochland machen zu können (war lt offiziellem Programm nur bei späterem Abflug möglich). Tatsächlich hatten die meisten Passagiere einen Vormittagsflug, die Ausschiffung wurde sehr zeitig durchgeführt und somit allen der Ausflug ermöglicht. Wir hatten dann natürlich eine lange Wartezeit am Airport und kamen erst spät in Lima an.

Es war eine tolle Woche! Es hat alles gepasst und war erwartungsgemäß und viel besser. Alles verlief nach Plan, die Crew und das Schiff sehr gepflegt und aufmerksam, das Essen lecker und immer frisch. Unser Guide hat sich gut um alles gekümmert und war sehr aufmerksam. Alle anderen Gäste an Bord waren genauso entspannt wie wir und somit war es eine ausgeglichene und nette Runde. Es war eine tolle Woche mit vielen Erlebnissen und Erfahrungen und hat uns viel Spass gemacht. Vielen Dank für die gute Planung und Organisation und wir empfehlen Sie gerne weiter. Mit herzlichen Grüßen Silke M.
