“Every year the Cruise Ships and Yachts in the Galapagos get nicer and nicer”, says Michael Eiseman, Co-Founder of VIP Journeys, “we are fortunate to be a luxury specialist and have more options in the Galapagos that are exploration ships offering 5-star food and service, especially in our smaller 16-20 passenger yachts. Our clients expect a special semi-private experience an evolution from the old rustic schooners that were popular in the past.”
Infinity Galapagos Yacht
The first of 4 vessels, is the Infinity, which boosts outside dining and bar and a solarium which allows you to cruise the Galapagos in tremendous style and sumptuous luxury. All eight cabins and two suites have private balconies. We like Yachts with private balconies for optimum views or for when you need to have a little fresh air.

The 20-passenger vessel was custom built to maximize fuel efficiency and comfort. The 10 staterooms are roomy and inviting, with large windows, private bathrooms, and plenty of storage space, spacious sundeck, which is equipped with day beds, hammocks, a four-person Jacuzzi, outdoor shower and a wet bar. The experienced 14-member Ecuadorian crew includes a high-level captain, a full-time concierge, and two expert naturalist guides – one for every 10 guests, the lowest ratio in the Galapagos. All staterooms are located on the main (Beagle) deck. Two cabins have interconnecting doors, and two cabins can accommodate triples.
