A sleek new (2019) contemporary yacht welcomes couples, families and singles to enjoy a Galapágos experience in a sociable environment with just 16 guests max.

Purpose built in 2019 the Solaris is a wonderful addition to the cruise offerings sailing around the Galapagos archipelago. With 11 bright and airy cabins for a maximum of 16 passengers including dedicated single cabins which unlike some other boats are generously sized, so single guests will not find themselves staying in a poky cabin next to the engine. Other cabins offer sofa beds so can transform into triple cabins.

The contemporary décor has been designed to give guests the opportunity to embrace space and light with panoramic sea-view windows in each cabin to take in the amazing views offered as you sail past the islands. You can relax on the sundeck or stay on the lookout for passing whales whilst enjoying space for alfresco dining. Inside you have a dining room and a lovely lounge and bar area for presentations so you can learn more about the unique wildlife, environment and history of the islands.

With 8 members of crew you’ll be well looked after from the fantastic food on offer to the knowledgeable and entertaining naturalist guide giving you the chance to get discover the islands iconic wildlife with at least two excursions a day.

Our Expert's Opinion

Whether you’re travelling alone, as a family, or just want a little more space to relax on the sofa in your cabin, the Solaris is a great choice for cruising around the Galapagos. Because the yacht offers a handful of dedicated single-occupancy cabins there’s a real convivial atmosphere on board which made the experience all the more enjoyable for me.
