M/V Isabela II Galapagos

For more sensitive and motion sickness travelers, it’s a good idea to consider larger vessels, since smaller ones tend to be less stable and may not contain a medical bay or medical staff. Still, travelers may worry that bigger means sacrificing personal space and comfort, that’s why Isabella II is a perfect choice. It offers space for 40 passengers for a total of 20 cabins, each with private bathroom.
Each excursion will allow for a maximum of 11 to 14 guests, always accompanied by a naturalist guide, bringing a more personalized experience.

Since being launched in 1979, Isabella has catered to many types of customers, striving to give only the highest standard of service, and that is why the staff has remained almost unchanged and constantly trained, including sustainability and a solid recycling routine and environmentally friendly practices, and the vessel itself has welcome many changes to reach all possible practices of responsibility, both in terms of safety and energy.

Isabella staff even includes trained chefs, that not only will serve lavish meals and buffets, but can also adapt to guest with food restrictions. Of course, let’s not forget the most important aspect. You will be able to explore the islands in reduced hiking groups, on its panga rides, glass-bottom boats and kayaks, and request snorkeling gear. Isabella has an activity leader watching for the best opportunities to explore and find the most relevant species depending on your desired route, plus a stargazing program and natural history lectures.

Finally, it’s hard to imagine such a dream like cruise without leisure time, and that is why you will be able to count on its social and lounge areas, and exquisite sundeck with jacuzzi and a bar area. You will too be able to access a fitness room, a library full of specialized books and field guides about the natural history of the Galapagos archipelago, a gift-shop and computer room, and of course, a fully equipped infirmary with attention at all times.
