Celebrate the holidays in one of the world’s most beautiful and unique environments, the Galapagos Islands! Begin with the evocative colonial city of Quito, South America's oldest capital city and designated UN World Heritage Site. Embark upon your luxury yacht on Christmas Eve, and sail away into the iconic Galapagos Islands. Discover plants and animals unique to particular islands as you travel throughout the archipelago. Our expert naturalist guides explain how these species have evolved and adapted over time. During an 8 day cruise you will visit the major wildlife sites, including some of the more remote outer islands. Meet exotic and bizarre wildlife as you venture among cinder cones, lava flows, white and black sand beaches, and rocky cliffs and cool off snorkeling in clear equatorial waters. Greet New Years Eve as you wing your way back to Quito – truly a spectacular way to bid farewell to 2017!
The M/Y Eric and Letty are twin 83-ft Galapagos yachts that accommodate up to 20 passengers with 2 top-of-their-field naturalist guides. These vessels are certified "Smart Voyager" for minimizing impact on the fragile island habitat and carry complimentary wetsuits, snorkeling gear and sea kayaks so guests can explore the islands in several ways!
