Welcome aboard our Queen Bea!

Experience the ‘Enchanted Islands’ in our new custom-built yacht, the Grand Queen Beatriz. Our new boutique expedition boat will come into service on the 30th June 2018. Custom built, 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. For trips departing before 30 June 2018 [and after], we’ll continue to use our beloved M/Y Daphne which offers fantastic choice of itineraries including visits to Genovesa and Fernandina (click https://www.intrepidtravel.com/au/daphne).
