M/Y Beluga

Luxury, comfort and exceptional itineraries await

Embark upon the spacious and comfortable “Superior First Class” motor yacht… The M/Y Beluga!

With panoramic windows in the salon and great deck space, the Beluga is a fantastic way to cruise the islands in speed and style.

The Beluga is outfitted exclusively for the Galapagos Islands and has been awarded the Smart Voyager certification for adhering to conservation standards. Beluga also complies with all international maritime regulations and is SOLAS certified.

Beluga offers the options of a 4 day, 6 day and 8-day itineraries that visit unique visitor sites in the National Park; each of these is hand-picked, rich and varied and offers the opportunity to experience the Galapagos up close and personal with a small group led by a highly experienced naturalist guide.

The itineraries can be combined to form a 15-day itinerary that we highly recommend for those travelers that would like to have a complete, in-depth experience of the Galapagos Islands.

Connoisseur Tip: 

The 8-day Itinerary – Fernandina, is truly exceptional and always in high demand. It visits the wonderful Western Islands of Isabela and Fernandina in style, but not without a previous stop at one of my favorite islands – Floreana. On the way back you get to visit Bartholomew Island where you can take in some of the best sights in the Galapagos a perfect selfie with Pinnacle Rock in the background!

Just like the caviar, the M/Y Beluga is truly exquisite…
