Travelling on the Integrity is like being on an intimate, nine-room, sea-going boutique hotel. The panoramic views from the picture windows in the salon and from the privacy of your state room are unobstructed and ever-changing as the Integrity quietly cruises along. With its huge state-of-the-art stabilizers and engine vibration control system, the Integrity is smoother and quieter than any other yacht in the islands offering peerless comfort. The yacht is locally owned by one of the oldest Galapagos families who have an unrivalled reputation for excellence. They have high environmental standards and treat the staff very well. Built in the USA and launched in Galapagos in 2005, the engines, transmissions, stabilizers, electronics, water filtration and sterilization are all new.

The Integrity has two excellent 8 day itineraries. In terms of which itinerary of the A & B 8-day options detailed below we think is the best - 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. The integrity yacht operator also offers a special 11 day package including at stay on Santa Cruz Island which is excellent value and we usually recommend guests take this option.

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 endeavour to have the best itinerary for you within these constraints.
