First Class Motor Sailor

Overview

Magnificent and lovingly maintained yacht which provides an intimate experience with nature.

Category Length Guests Cabins
First Class 105 ft / 32 m 14 7

Named after the HMS Beagle in which Charles Darwin made his famous voyage to the Galapagos, this is a magnificent 105 foot steel-hulled schooner with teak decks and real charm. The yacht, which is often captained by its owner, has good sized en-suite cabins, a comfortable salon, delicious Ecuadorean cuisine and superb service. The wide teak decks and comfortable seating give a choice of shady nooks or open spaces for relaxing in the sun, bird-watching or observing dolphins off the bow. Given her size, which is for only 14 guests, the Beagle provides a very intimate experience with nature and makes her a great choice for private parties or family cruises. Built in Woolwich, England in the 1970’s the yacht was totally refitted in 2004 and has been awarded the SmartVoyager Certificate for adherence to sound conservation practices.

Itinerary

The Beagle has two superb 8 day itineraries. They were the first yacht to switch voluntarily to the 15-day itineraries before they became compulsory at the start of 2012, dividing it into two 8 day options and so had the pick of the bunch!   In terms of which of the two 8 day itineraries is best - the Central or Southern, or the Northern and Western option - we think they are both equally good! However if you have a particular interest in birds or reptiles and depending on the time of year of your visit, one could have the edge over the other – but we can help advise on this.

Below are PDF’s of the two different 8-day itinerary options, and below is the full 15 day itinerary.

Itinerary 8 days – Northern and Western IslandsItinerary 8 days – Northern and Western Islands

A great variety of islands and excellent selection of Galapagos wildlife,fascinating geological scenery and great snorkelling opportunities. Highlights include the pristine and untouched western coast of Isabella Island and Fernandina, with their great wildlife and the chance of spotting whales and dolphins and Genovesa a beautiful island and outpost for seabirds.

Near the only fresh water spring on Floreana, (which was used for centuries by pirates, whalers and travellers), there is a corral where a collection of giant tortoises are kept in near-natural conditions.  This is also the place where you can see the Medium Tree Finch and the chance to explore some caves that were dug out by pirates.

This island is one of the highlights of any visit to Galapagos. Espanola is the southernmost island in the Galapagos, and is also one of the oldest. Numerous Sea Lions are seen here, plus hundreds of Marine Iguanas basking on the rocks. Espanola’s Marine Iguanas are unlike other Galapagos Marine Iguanas thanks to their bright colouring.

Espanola is home to thousands of nesting seabirds all year, including Blue-footed Boobies, Nazca Boobies and Frigatebirds. Between late March and December the Waved Albatross, perhaps the most spectacular of Galapagos birds, returns to Espanola by the thousands to perform their amazing mating dance and produce the next generation. Almost the entire population breeds on this island during this time, and they spend the rest of the year at sea.

Punta Suárez  Regarding the amount of wildlife, this one of the best trails in the whole islands. Despite the difficult terrain, the walk is an absolute marvel, as from the beginning to the end you will see large quantities of Sea Lions, Marine Iguanas, Blue-footed and Nazca boobies, gulls, Galapagos Hawks and during most of the year, Waved Albatross.

A highlight of any visit to the Galapagos, a truly beautiful island thanks to the richness of its birdlife. Located in the northeast portion of Galapagos, the island is an outpost for many seabirds (as is Espanola in the South). Interestingly there are no land reptiles here and only very small Marine Iguanas, due to direction of ocean currents which apparently would not have carried terrestrial animals here. You will visit the following sites.

El Barranco or Prince Philip’s Steps ) The tour begins with a great dinghy (small dingy) ride along the base of the cliffs where you see Red-billed Tropicbirds trying to make a precise landing in their nest. Squadrons of Frigatebirds are seen flying back and forth, whilst Red-footed Boobies perch on branches of Palo Santo trees which seemingly grow out of the cliffs. Once you arrive on land and climb to the cliff-top, you enter an area where nesting Nazca Boobies and Great Frigatebirds are found. It is also a great place to see Galapagos Doves and Vampire Finches (Sharp-beaked Ground finches)…ask your guide for the full story on the name! You will also see a large colony of Storm Petrels which attracts Short-Eared Owls, often observed stalking at these small sea birds, even during the day.

This is an excellent area to look for some elusive endemics like the Woodpecker Finch (one of only a few bird species in the world to use tools), Small Tree Finch, Vegetarian Finch and Galapagos Rail.
