M/Y Evolution Cruise Description:
Set along the equator, some 600 miles off the South American coast of Ecuador is a crown jewel of the natural world. The Galapagos Islands live up to our dreams of a sheltered place far removed from the usual concerns. The skies are typically sunny, and the sea breezes create that perfect air temperature that instantly relaxes the body. The ocean is an ever inviting blue, matched by long sandy beaches of coral white, terracotta red, volcanic black and looking-glass green. There are crystal coves and quite mangrove lagoons.
Accommodation & Distribution:
The Galapagos Evolution has a capacity for 18 passengers, featuring 9 spacious cabins. All cabins have private bathroom, hot/cold water, air conditioning with independent controls, mini-bar, TV. It is also designed with twin beds or one faux queen bed and connected suites for families.
