Get to know the highlights of Galápagos with this Naturalist cruise on board the beautiful Mary Anne! On this Expedition Cruise, you will discover the incredible wildlife of the Galápagos Islands: Fernandina, the youngest island, will blow your mind with its rugged lava landscapes. The youngest island in the archipelago, it is still being formed by volcanic eruptions and makes for a wonderful, otherworldly contrast to the other islands. During our visit to Floreana, you will have the opportunity for some great dinghy rides, extensive snorkeling, and learning more about the fascinating human history of the Galápagos. Isabela, the biggest of all islands in the Galápagos, offers you fantastic hikes, views and arguably some of the best snorkeling spots in the Archipelago. On North Seymour, an incredible hike and snorkeling session awaits you. This island is the archipelago condensed into very little space, and you'll be able to see almost all the iconic Galápagos species in just a few hours. During your time on Santa Cruz, you will have the chance to observe the famous Galápagos Giant Tortoises in the wild and learn more about the preservation and scientific study of these amazing animals. On Santiago, an island formerly inhabited by pirates, you will be able to enjoy hikes and dinghy rides.

Your ship: Mary Anne

There is simply no better way to follow in the footsteps of Charles Darwin than to navigate around the Galápagos Islands under sail as he did. Launched in 1997, and offering the best of modern design, stability, and safety married to the romance of cruising under sail, the Mary Anne is the perfect “trip of a lifetime” choice for your Galápagos adventure.

Mary Anne was originally designed to accommodate 24 passengers, but in Galápagos she only takes 16 guests. This means that you never feel crowded or shoehorned in. It also means that Mary Anne is one of the few Galápagos cruise ships to carry … Read more about Mary Anne

Food & Drinks

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.

Amazing Galapagos Cruise We just got back from an 8 day trip aboard the Mary Anne. The boat and crew were marvelous. They went above and beyond to accommodate the special needs of several passengers Great food! Our guide, Juan Carlos, was outstanding. Because of a medical emergency, our itinerary was changed. Everyone did their best to try and make the alterations worthwhile. Sorry we missed Fernandina, but give credit to all involved for making the best of an unfortunate situation. Would highly recommend this cruise to others. Also, the support of Galapatours in making everything come together for us. Source: TripAdvisor

Great from A to Z Everything was great from A to Z, fantastic crew, wonderful captain, awesome guide, amazing food! You can definitely recommend it, while not as luxury in the cabins than in probably other modern boats, we feel we are in a real boat, not a floating lounge. And the crew made cabins always clean and welcoming. And last but not least: Galapagos and all the birds, lézards, scenic...a new location each day, each one more amazing than another, after a comfortable sailing. Tx-:)!

Fabulous journey The Mary Anne was wonderful. All I could have hoped for. Excellent weather, food, company. I could not have improved on it. It was a memorable trip which I will recommend to everyone. I had always wanted to go on a cruise on a boat like that so the trip ticked several boxes and lived up to expectations completely. My room was a double with an en-suite bathroom. It was air conditioned and a welcome cool spot from the brilliant sun. Source: goo.gl/fQ3vbV

Great family cruise The Mary Anne is a special way to see the Galapagos aboard a wonderful vessel with a warm and dedicated crew and our guide Desiree brought the entire trip to life because of her knowledge and especially because of her ability to connect warmly to our family. Everything was well coordinated with an equally competent and warm guide and the crews great hospitality worked well for our family members. I can highly recommend the Mary Anne for a family memory that will last a lifetime. Thanks Detour, The McDonald Family Source: goo.gl/ZMzpRv

Top notch cruise The Mary Anne was everything we hoped she would be, and more so. What a beautiful boat! Whenever we came back from a land trip on the panga we could not believe our luck that we were staying on her, she looked so lovely rocking gently in the bay. And when they put all the sails up, that was just fabulous, we felt like Pirates of the Caribbean. I thought the crew were excellent, they all worked so hard, and the chef produced such yummy food, it was a highlight to eat out on deck so much - we were so lucky with the weather.
