Get to know the highlights of Galápagos with this Naturalist cruise on board the beautiful Bonita! 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. On Genovesa, breathtaking dinghy rides, stunning views and close encounters with the most iconic birds of the Archipelago await you. Blue-footed Boobies, Red-footed Boobies, Nazca Boobies and many more species can be seen here. 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. A walk across South Plaza is one of the best visitor experiences in the Galápagos thanks to the large number of species living in such a small area.

Your ship: Bonita

  • Purpose-built Galápagos yacht
  • Refurbished annually
  • Traditional hand-crafted teak cabins
  • Totally refurbished in September 2019

Bonita is one of our favorite yachts in the Galápagos fleet, because it was among the first to be custom-designed for cruising the amazing Galápagos Islands. Because Bonita features accommodation for a maximum of 20 guests she carries 2 qualified naturalist guides each. This means you will get a much smaller guest to guide ratio than most other ships in the fleet.

The operator of Bonita refurbishes the yacht every year. This is exceptional, and it means … Read more about Bonita

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.

Bonita Galapagos Cruise

An overall wonderful experience I would recommend everyone My wife and I decided after a long hesitation that we'd go to the Galapagos Islands. We booked the Bonita Galapagos Cruise, a new ship with not much reviews so we were quite cautious. Well... fast forward to the day we stepped foot on board, we immediately were blown away by how beautiful the ship was. It was obvious that this ship was brand new. If it wasn't for the ship, I wouldn't be able to tell it was a new cruise. The crew was very friendly and experienced, it was clear that this wasn't their first cruise.. If you're in the same boat as us, doubting whether to go or not: definitely do it. You will not regret it! Source: TripAdvisor

Great Cruise I went on the Bonita cruise in the second week of February together with my brother and sister. The trip was very well organized and due to the very friendly and helpful staff we were able to experience the Galapagos in a perfect way. Highly recommend! Source: TripAdvisor

Wonderful experience in Galápagos! Beginning of February my boyfriend and I went on a cruise with the Bonita Yacht. We’re usually not big fans of cruises but this was truly the best thing ever! We went on one of the 5-days cruises taking the Southern Route to Floreana, Española and San Cristobal and all the stops along the way were so beautiful! The whole ship is pretty new, and everything was very clean. All staff was really friendly and helpful, and I enjoyed the food. I liked as well that they had vegan and vegetarian food options on the ship and a station with water and coffee available throughout the day. I would definitely take this trip again and can only recommend Bonita Yacht as well as the route to anyone who is interested in taking a cruise in Galapagos! Source: Tripadvisor
