Trip Highlights

•   As you fly from Quito to the Galapagos Islands, located in the equatorial water of the Pacific Ocean, you will suddenly find yourself in a very different world.

•   As you board your vessel, M.Y. Grand Queen Beatriz, and follow in the footsteps of Charles Darwin, you will encounter nature at its finest.

•   Explore the islands from on deck, on foot and in the water, no doubt with your eyes open for your next unique sight.

•   You'll encounter giant Galapagos tortoises, blue-footed and masked boobies, pelicans and frigate birds, as well as land and marine iguanas, sea lions, fur seals and perhaps dolphins, whales and sea turtles.

•   Because of the extreme isolation of the islands, nearly a quarter of all species are endemic and much of the wildlife has no instinctive fear of man, allowing you to observe nature in its full glory.

•   This 17-day program is the ultimate Galapagos exploration and our most comprehensive voyage.

•   It includes the volcanic wonders of Isabela Island and offers the best opportunities to encounter the magnificent flora and fauna that make the Galapagos unique.

Where you'll be staying

Grand Queen Beatriz

Our new boutique expedition boat came into service on the 30th June 2018. Custom built, with a stylish modern design, ensuite bathrooms, outward-facing windows in all cabins (and private balconies in some), and a jacuzzi on the sundeck, the ‘Grand Queen Bea’ will be one of the newest boats operating in the Galapagos.

Itinerary & Notes
Welcome to Quito, one of South America’s most beautiful cities. On arrival at Quito's Mariscal Sucre International Airport (AKA Quito Airport), an Intrepid representative will greet you and assist with transfer to your hotel. A welcome meeting will be held in the evening at either 5 pm or 6 pm in the hotel, where you can meet your fellow travellers. The remainder of the day will be at your leisure. If you arrive with time to spare, why not visit the city's oldest street – Calle La Ronda – a cobblestone beauty that is vibrant both day and night.
