Brush up on your sea shanties and get ready to sail the not-very-high seas of the Galapagos in our brand spanking new boat, Daphne. She’s got room for 16 passengers across her double/twin berth suites and bunk cabins, all of which are air-conditioned and have private en suites.

Chill out on the top-level sundeck (you might want to grab a beer from on the on-board bar), escape the heat on the undercover outdoor terrace or make a cup of tea, put your feet up in the lounge and watch the Galapagos archipelago float by. Eat up a storm in the dining room ­– you’ll get three fresh, delicious meals prepared by your chef each day – chat to your friendly crew and expert naturalist guide, and channel your inner Charles Darwin as you experience the incredible Galapagos Islands.
