This elegant expeditionary vessel is the perfect choice for an inspirational and educational experience in the legendary Galapagos Islands. She is a generously proportioned ship with a small yacht atmosphere providing the perfect base for just 48 guests to enjoy an unforgettable adventure in this extraordinary location. Every day on board provides new excitements and discovery as you cruise gently around the many islands and islets which make up the archipelago. Naturalist guides conduct all shore excursions.

Highlights

  • Small Groups: The Eclipse offers 1 guide per 12 passengers.
  • Flexibility: Four Zodiacs operating excursions allows greater flexibility for activities.
  • Outdoor Dining: Al fresco dining with an average of 15 meals served outside while navigating past breathtaking Galapagos landscapes
  • Space: MV Eclipse offers spacious indoor social areas and large outdoor spaces including a separate sun deck plus Jacuzzi
  • Solo Travellers: MV Eclipse has two single cabins available free of single supplements.

Accommodation
All cabins are air-conditioned, outward facing and some of the largest of any vessel in the Galapagos. There are four cabin types, all with sea views: Deluxe and Superior Staterooms on the Boat Deck have picture windows and Staterooms and Single Staterooms on the Main Deck have portholes. Cabins have double or twin beds, bedside tables, a writing desk, chair, ample closet space, private safety deposit box and an internal communications system. All twin beds can be converted to queen-size beds. Cabins are serviced three times a day. The well-appointed bathrooms consist of a shower, toilet, sink, cabinet, hairdryer and a basket of toiletries.

Facilities
Other features include 'alfresco' dining, a library/video room, a naturalist guide for every 12 passengers, a hot tub on the outdoor sun deck, observation deck and complimentary use of snorkelling equipment. Meals are served buffet style with all soft drinks included. The atmosphere on board is relaxed and informal, perfect for exploration in one of the world's most exciting wildlife environments.

Family friendly
There are a number of family cruises scheduled with specialist guides assigned to educate and entertain children throughout the day, encouraging their own discoveries about the history of evolution and the wonders of the islands. Guides organise separate activities for children such as educational walks, beach games, on-board activities, special briefings, special menus and mealtimes.

Itineraries
There are two Galapagos itineraries of 5 and 7-night duration. All are well balanced allowing visitors, regardless of which itinerary is chosen, to see the archipelago's unique flora and fauna.


The Española 5 and 7 night cruises cover parts of central, south and south-western Galapagos.










Excursions ashore by motorised dingy (locally called pangas) are planned with English-speaking naturalist guides with wet and dry landings featured. There is opportunity for hiking, swimming, snorkelling, kayaking (at designated sites with limited numbers), bird watching and close-up photography of the flora and fauna which make these islands so famous.
