M/Y DAPHNE, in 2004 this yacht was rebuilt and a suite and a spacious sundeck was added to it. On the sun deck you can work on your tan while watching the frigate birds glide on the upwind of the boat.

With our cruise you will be exploring many of the different islands of the archipelago, in a way that we believe is the best for experiencing the magnificent Galapagos nature, flora and fauna, and of course its famous endemic animals - all first-hand and up close.

Galapagos Daphne Yacht Accommodations

We are a local company located on the Galapagos Islands, owned and run by Galapagos Islanders. We have more than 30 years of experience organizing cruises around these spectacular islands. The owners are the descendants of early settlers who decided to work in tourism.

We know it’s a privilege to live on the Galapagos Islands, where 97% of the land is a National Park and its surrounding waters are a Marine Reserve. Therefore we are doing our best and continuously improve our operation to reduce environmental impacts. In recognition of our commitment we have been granted the Smart Voyager Certification and the Sello de Calidad Galapagos (Galapagos Quality Certification).
