Previously a private family luxury yacht which had never been used before for tourist, the Passion was brought to Galapagos in 2015 by Andando Tours, a local company with a great reputation for quality of service, friendly helpful crews, great food and first-class naturalist guides. The crew-to-guest ratio is more than 1:1 so providing an excellent level of service. The yacht, which is very spacious and spread over 4 decks (with 7 state cabins for 12 guests) also has kayaks on board which can be used in certain sites whilst other guests are snorkelling. Excellent itineraries. Its small guest capacity makes this a superb option for private charters, as well as for individual guests.

4 excellent itineraries which were created by Fiddi Angermeyer, a real pioneer of Galapagos cruising with lots of experience – they have been created with an understanding of the currents and winds to ensure the journeys are as smooth as possible as well as including a great range of wildlife and visitor sites.
