Ecuador & the Galapagos

Elite Luxury Yacht, Galapagos

Setting the standard for luxury in the Galapagos, Elite is a sleek and stylish catamaran which will take you into all the island’s best corners. Offering just 10 stylish suites, you’ll enjoy a hyper-personalised experience from the attentive, knowledgeable crew as you get to know the islands’ flora and fauna. Onboard, the suites’ azure hues and floor to ceiling windows bring the ocean to life whilst a sky deck with jacuzzi and lounge make for the perfect place to unwind after a day packed full of discovery.


After a short 1 hour 45 minute hop across from Guayaquil on the mainland, your Galapagos odyssey begins in earnest. Depending on the length of your itinerary, you’ll embark and disembark at either San Cristobal or Baltra islands. From here, you’ll sail into isolated islands and remote visitor points as you discover the most unique wildlife. Whether you’re snorkelling with sea lions around the Devil’s Crown or hiking the volcanic fields of Fernandina, expert guides will be at your side every step of the way.

Your Room

Offering just eight double cabins and two singles, Elite is an intimate and exclusive experience. Suites are spread between the main and upper decks and each offer vast panoramic windows and private balconies from which to marvel at the passing scenery. Inside, decor is intentionally neutral with a base of natural materials and tortoise motifs, topped up by splashes of vibrant blue that serve to connect you to your surroundings. With the possibility of interconnecting suites and king or twin bed setups, Elite will suit family adventures and couples’ escapes alike.

Why we like it

Elite does just as much to deliver an exceptional stay off-board as it does on-board. Itineraries here are carefully curated by the best guides and captains in the Galapagos to grant you access to unique experiences, all without another boat in sight. You’ll do it in a multitude of ways too as you kayak, paddleboard and snorkel through this pristine ecosystem. Have a particular passion? Let the team know and they’ll do their best to indulge it.
