Adventure awaits aboard the M/Y Darwin!
The Darwin yacht was built in Puerto Ayora, in the Galapagos Islands in 1995. Boasting more than 20 years of experience cruising the Enchanted Islands, the Darwin is a great choice for those seeking adventure at a convenient price point. Guests can cruise the islands comfortably in eight ample double rooms, equipped with air-conditioning, private facilities, and hot/cold water.
Social areas include; a spacious living room, well-stocked bar, sundeck and inviting dining room where you will enjoy tasty local and international cuisine.
You will be happy to make the M/Y Darwin your home away from home while enjoying the Galapagos Islands with great service on board.
The Darwin offers two types of itineraries; Adventure and Discovery itineraries. The Adventure itinerary offers a choice of 8,5 and 4-day itineraries, visiting the Western and Central islands. The Discovery itinerary has a choice of 8,7,5 and 4-day itineraries, visiting the Southern and Central Islands.
Taking in consideration that the Darwin is one of the most budget-friendly yachts in the Galapagos, I would recommend what IMHO is the best and most budget-friendly option for visiting the Galapagos Islands; the 5-day Discovery itinerary which visits the Southern islands; Española and Floreana and makes a stop at Santa Fe. My favorite visit on this itinerary is when you get a chance to snorkel at the Devil’s Crown. Hands down the best snorkeling site in the Galapagos. Trust me I’ve been snorkeling there and its truly something special.
