The Yolita II
Launched from Guayaquil in 2009, the Yolita II offers all the comforts you'd expect from a modern motor yacht and is very competitively-priced for the standard and features on offer.
A maximum of 16 passengers guarantees that the ample spaces of the public areas will never feel full, and the well-appointed cabins are also larger than average. They all are fully air-conditioned, with private bathrooms and well-sized windows.
You're likely to spend much of your free time on the large sun-deck, but the lounge is very comfortable and well-equipped and in the evenings, you'll find the bar to be very well-stocked as well!
Another reason behind the Yolita II's undoubted popularity is the fact that it also offers four single cabins, meaning that if you are a solo traveller, you can avoid the steep single supplements that apply to most Galapagos cruises without compromising on either the itinerary or the quality of the vessel.
The following cruise options are available for the Yolita II:
The prices above are just for the cruise itself, so remember that you will also need the return flights to/from the Galapagos, transfers, and almost certainly two nights' accommodation on the mainland to fit in with your international flights as well.
We can include all this for a set price of £600pp - the only reason we don't include these as part of the price above is that we know many other companies only give the price for the cruise, and we don't want to look more expensive when we're not!
The prices do include all meals in the Galapagos, unlimited purified water and use of snorkelling equipment. They do not include alcoholic drinks, your US$10 Galapagos Transit Card or the US$100 Galapagos National Park fee as unfortunately we are unable to pre-pay these and they must be paid on arrival in the Galapagos islands.
