Experience the ‘Enchanted Islands’ in our new custom-built yacht, the Grand Queen Beatriz.

Experience the ‘Enchanted Islands’ in our new custom-built yacht, the Grand Queen Beatriz. Our new boutique expedition boat came into service on the 30th June 2018. With a stylish modern design, ensuite bathrooms, outward-facing windows in all cabins (and private balconies in some), and a jacuzzi on the sundeck, the ‘Grand Queen Bea’ will be one of the newest boats operating in the Galapagos. If you don't find the itinerary your after our beloved M/Y Daphne offers a fantastic choice of itineraries including visits to Genovesa and Fernandina (click here to learn more about M/Y Daphne).
