About Yacht Isabela II

Yacht Isabela II is the perfect base for exploring Darwin’s remote islands in luxury. The warm, professional and hospitable crew make a great team, having remained almost unchanged for many years.

With just 20 guest cabins, the yacht’s convivial atmosphere allows clients, guides and crew members to get acquainted, as do the group excursions. Scout for the Galápagos Big 15 wildlife among the islands’ many habitats. Led by a naturalist guide, you can take hidden trails through the heart of this sun-scarred landscape. Explore the beaches and rocky coves by panga, kayak or glass-bottom boat. Swimming and snorkelling are also great ways to achieve marine sightings. 

After active days and exciting expeditions, come back to enjoy deliciously prepared cuisine. You can choose from traditional dishes, international favourites and Ecuadorian specialities. The excellent facilities include a hot tub, fitness room, bar and natural history library. Take part in engaging lectures which cover the wildlife and history you’re here to encounter, and spend leisurely evenings on the sun deck. This is the perfect setting for sunbathing, wildlife watching and atmospheric alfresco meals.
