An Exclusive Experience

Privact Yacht Charters

Private charters allow you to make your Galapagos experience uniquely your own.

The way to make your trip of a lifetime even more amazing is to share it with family, friends and close associates while having the entire yacht to yourself.

Both our yachts are available for private charters.

M/Y Grace

M/Y Grace is available for up to 18 passengers in 9 cabins.

M/V Evolution

M/V Evolution can be chartered for as few as 24 passengers in 16 cabins, and you can incrementally add up to 8 more passengers for a total of 32.

advantages of your
galapagos private charter
your own

On a private charter your party will be the only passengers aboard the yacht making for a more exclusive experience when you visit landings and snorkeling sites. You can relax and share memories in the familiarity of those you know and care about most.


When you charter the entire yacht you will enjoy significant savings over booking individual cabins at retail. This is one way we reward our chartering passengers.

Group Size

You can charter the Grace for 18 passengers. Aboard the Evolution you can charter the yacht for as few as 24 passengers and add up to 8 more incrementally, giving you flexibility in the size of your group and pricing.

Landmark Occassions

In the past, at our passenger's request, we have staged large birthday, anniversary and other landmark celebrations for our chartering guests.

Together, you and your loved ones will get
lost in the sights and sounds of the Galapagos.

Intimacy it's fullest
Friends and Group Charters

Our friends and group charters are ideal for those looking to see the Galapagos in a more intimate-shared adventure. These charters include wine-tasting nights, special lectures, special menus and more.
