Galaxy is a beautiful motor yacht, launched in 2007, excellent crew, good food and very spacious and comfortable interiors. Run by a local company with a very good reputation and has first rate naturalists on board. It has been one of our favourite yachts in recent years - the itineraries are great and it offers very good value we think for the quality of yacht and experience. The yacht is relatively fast, which means less time navigating than on slower yachts. The cabins are all very spacious with comfortable lower beds and outside views, very good value for the quality of service and comfort afforded.

The Galaxy has one of the most flexible selections of itineraries of any of the yachts we work with 4,5,6,8,10,11 and 15 day cruises available. As the yacht offers good levels of comfort for a competitive price this is one of our favourite options for 10 and 11 day cruises which allow you to see a great selection of wildlife – though the shorter itineraries are also very good. Here are PDF’s of the 4,5,6 and 8 day itinerary options which can be combined to make longer trips, and below is the full 15 day itinerary...
