The Convenient and Flexible M/V Isabela II

The first-class Isabela II Galapagos cruise vessel offers the conveniences and amenities of a much larger ship, though its three public decks possess only 20 ocean-facing cabins* plus an owner's suite.

 

Definitely, a fun choice for cruising the Galapagos Islands, on the sundeck you’ll find a bar-lounge with ample outdoor seating, a sunbathing area, an observation area for whale and dolphin watching, a Jacuzzi and a solarium. All of this complements the Isabela II’s fitness room, dining room, stateroom, and a library with a large selection of books.

 

Enjoy all of this with an environmentally clean conscience. Being so passionate about the natural environment, the Isabela II features green technologies such as a desalination and water treatment plant, special lights that reduce the attraction of insects and animals, and a low-fuel-consuming engine.

For its guests to experience the very best of the Galapagos,  the Isabela II offers enriching wildlife encounters – whether when hiking across the islands’ haunting volcanic landscapes, beachcombing along postcard-worthy settings, snorkeling beneath the waves, or peering through a glass-bottom hull at miraculous Galapagos marine life.

 

And if you are worried about overly large groups when on land excursions, put your mind at rest. Since the Isabela has three class-III naturalist guides, the daily expeditions average only 11 each. These guides fascinate guests with intriguing explanations of the archipelago’s natural history, superb on-deck talks, and eye-catching presentations. At night, under almost pitch-black skies, the guides lead the ship’s amazing stargazing program, pointing out the highlights of the southern sky’s exuberant and beautifully arranged constellations.

 

Similarly, the rest of the crew evidences dedication, attention to detail and a passion for service; particularly the ship’s culinary staff, who are capable of satisfying any special dietary request despite having to cater to dozens of passengers. And though the menus are seasonally designed by a Cordon-Bleu-trained chef, the kitchen always gives a “down home” touch to their cuisine through unexpected yet pleasant details that continually surprise.

 

Clearly, though this ship is a great option for any type of traveler, we suggest it for large groups who are looking for a Galapagos chartered cruise. Inquire now, and our Groups and Incentives Specialists will get in touch so that we can start designing the journey you seek. Whether a corporate incentive activity, family events, alumni reunions, anniversaries… your private charter will go well beyond the ordinary to provide a truly exceptional experience.

“The trip was excellent from beginning to end. The Isabella II was a fine ship and the crew and guides were all of the highest quality. I would recommend them to others. For us, the ship was the perfect size – not too small and not too large.”Walter Squire
