A Sailor’s Dream come true in the Galapagos!
The M/S Mary Anne is the perfect ship for those who love to sail. She has 1,000 m2 of canvas sails with which she majestically takes to the waves.
This precious 3-masted barquentine, (the only one of its kind in the islands), can accommodate up to 16 guests in her 12 cabins.
A true Nautical Experience…
“Navigating under full sail on a large ship is probably the best of nautical experiences.” Being an imposing 3-masted schooner, you can bet the Mary Anne’s sails are not only for show. The S/S Mary Anne hoist its sails on every itinerary and because of its size and structure is the only ship in the Galapagos Archipelago that can navigate by wind power alone. Be part of this unique nautical experience on any of our itineraries. Our crew will gladly welcome your help when the moment arrives and the captain yells, “Hoist the sails!”
The Mary Anne features two 8-day itineraries, visiting the Western and Eastern Islands. The fact that they offer week-long itineraries only means a more intimate and hassle-free experience in the Galapagos. You will not have to wait for groups to embark or disembark during your fantastic week in the Galapagos.
Regarding which itinerary is a better option, it’s really a hard decision here. Both itineraries visit the highlights of the Galapagos. Both are well-rounded and will provide a fantastic experience in the Enchanted Islands.
