Travelers are raving about this experience, and we are delighted to invite you to explore one of the the world's last wilderness frontiers on an exclusive charter onboard the MV Eclipse. The vessel accommodates 48 guests - half the number of passengers usually found on a ship of this size, which affords a variety of outdoor spaces to relax, observe wildlife and dine outdoors.
Only the most experienced guides will escort our guests in small group expeditions and on snorkeling excursions comprising no more than 12. It's an ideal way to explore among the 19 islands and 40 islets that comprise the Galapagos archipelago, and be fascinated by the array of species you will encounter. Expect extraordinary underwater observations and unmatched interaction with wild animals, who remain fearless due to the absence of predators.
Staterooms are comfortable and air-conditioned, with either picture windows or large portholes, providing a view of the surrounding waters. Other touches on board, like the Ceviche Lesson and Photo-Intensive workshop, inspire guests to celebrate and recreate memories even after returning.
Our physicians' group, traveling July 3-11, 2015, has space to accommodate a few guests who wish to take advantage of the great charter rates, saving $395 per person off the brochure rate for individual travelers!
