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.
Please Note:Itineraries are unlikely to change significantly but are subject to change. Weather, wildlife breeding, instructions from the Galapagos National Park, specific abilities and interests of passengers as well as operational matters may cause your guide or captain to change the times or nature of your visits. Your guide will always endeavor to have the best itinerary for you within these constraints.
