Isabela II

Isabela II Galapagos Islands Luxury Cruise

Isabela-IIThe atmosphere aboard the deluxe Isabela II is that of a large elegant yacht. It is one of the most luxurious means of touring the Galapagos Islands. This well-appointed yacht is fully carpeted and air-conditioned. Its convivial bar / lounge is a popular gathering place: drinks are set out there for passengers as they return from natural history excursions in the islands.

The 1083-ton yacht has accommodations for 40 passengers in 20 comfortable outside twin cabins, all with private shower and toilet. Spacious cabins have plenty of room for storing belongings. Four cabins have double beds for either single or double occupancy. Its three public decks include a large salon / bar area, ample sun deck, spacious dining room, and a separate reading and game room. The highly trained crew of 27 includes three multilingual naturalist guides, who lead smaller groups for Galapagos island visits.

“The Isabella II was more than we expected. It was clean, the food was great, the crew could not have been nicer. The Captain, waiters, boat handlers, cabin personnel were all wonderful. If anyone is interested in seeing wildlife in its natural habitat Galapagos is the place to go. We really do want to go back for a longer stay in the Galapagos. Being wildlife lovers it was an experience we will never forget.” – Daisy Rodriguez, USA

As one of Ecuador’s leading conservation organizations, Conservacion y Desarrollo developed the Smart Voyager sustainable tourism certification program, which awards its seal of approval to tour boat operators and hotels in Ecuador who meet a set of strict conservation standards for protecting the environment, wildlife and the well-being of workers and local communities.
