Experience the Magic of the Galápagos Islands—in WT style!

Small Yacht Travel: the Best Way to Experience The Islands — Wake each morning to a new island to explore, and while you enjoy lunch al fresco on deck, we move to a second fascinating site. Traveling by yacht gives you the greatest variety of wildlife, scenery, and certainly the best snorkeling sites.

Active Adventures, with Hiking, Snorkeling, Zodiac Explorations, and Optional Sea Kayaking — We capture the wonder of Darwin’s legendary archipelago on daily island hikes, on snorkeling excursions that reveal sea turtles, Galápagos penguins, marine iguanas, and a kaleidoscopic array of tropical fish, and on optional explorations by sea kayak.

Our Small Groups Ensure Your Experience Is Personalized — With just 16 guests on the Mary Anne and 14 guests aboard the Passion, you’ll enjoy wonderful camaraderie—it’s an experience not possible on the larger cruise ships.

Explore and Learn with World-Class Trip Leaders — Our Trip Leaders are the best and most experienced in the Galápagos. They are phenomenal teachers and delightful traveling companions with a gift for creating unforgettable experiences.

Our Commitment to Conservation — Wilderness Travel is a proud founding member of the International Galápagos Tour Operators Association (IGTOA), dedicated to the preservation of these extraordinary islands, and we support the Galápagos Conservancy and the Charles Darwin Foundation.

The Galapagos Islands are amazing, and it was a wonderful lifetime experience to go there. Doing it in great style on the Mary Anne made it even better! The ship experience was fantastic, like being on a beautifully maintained private yacht.
