Galapagos - Cruises


An intimate luxury vessel

Exceptional wildlife activities from a luxury yacht

Petrel is one of the Galapagos’ ultimate catamarans offering a luxury, spacious and stylish exploration of the Archipelagos. Named after a sea bird commonly found in the Galapagos, the Petrel is its namesake; it is both elegant, swift and silent at sea, offering its guests a first class experience whilst sailing these magical islands.

With just nine very spacious cabins, this luxury vessel has capacity for only sixteen guests, promising your excursion to be both intimate & comfortable. All cabins have been stylishly designed with a sleek, modern interior and boast their own private balconies. The vessel has ample shared space, with a living and dining room as well as a large sun deck. During your stay, you will be able to take part in the set itinerary and explore many of the Galapagos’ most popular islands.

You also have the opportunity to kayak and snorkel to discover the islands’ spectacular marine life.

The Cloud Forests

Mashpi Lodge
Set into one of the planet’s most important bio-regions, the futuristic Mashpi Lodge powered with 100% hydroelectricity really is a ‘contemporary cocoon in the clouds’. Praised for its ecological and contemporary design by being nominated for the likes of Wallpaper’s Design Awards, Mashpi’s steel and glass creation sits amongst 3,200 acres of pristine rainforest on a bluff that commands stunning views over the lush valleys, cloud forests and hills of the Tumbez-Choco-Darien bio-region (otherwise known as the Chocó) in Ecuador. The 20 rooms and three suites are spacious and simply modern in decoration, with floor to ceiling windows that keep your attention on what’s outside rather than what’s in. The restaurant has been thoughtfully constructed with two-storey high ceilings and windows for walls so again you feel constantly in touch with the forest, whilst dining on local produce from exotic fruits blended with more savoury dishes and organic ingredients to home made chocolate. There is also a terrace with pergola roof for incredible views over the jungle canopy, perhaps spotting one or two of its creatures. Daily wildlife expeditions and nature excursions are led by the lodge’s team of Ecuadorian biologists and things like wellington boots and rain ponchos are provided. The aerial tram from the lodge allow for deeper daily explorations into the forest, and comes with an observation tower and Life Centre which has butterfly farms and terrariums for a really close up look to these species. Hikes, bathing in waterfalls and rivers are very much part of the Mashpi experience too.
