Mid-Sized First Class Galapagos Boats

With fewer than 50 guests

Mid-sized, first class boats offer an excellent option with many of the facilities found on larger ships on-board a small boat.  Galapagos National Park regulations mean that you’ll have one expert guide for every 16 guests when going ashore.
