The 60-guest Wilderness Adventurer, refurbished in early 2011, offers a main lounge evoking the ambiance of a National Park Lodge. The sun deck has a hot tub, sauna and fitness equipment; the observation deck allows for over-the-top viewing from the bow; and the EZ Dock launch platform on the main deck makes getting in the water a cinch. This ship features Kids in Nature Family Departures on July 26 and Aug. 9. Children 12 and under save 25 percent on published fares on select departures. The per person double rate is from $2,195.

This is an adventure that maximizes snorkeling and swimming along with land excursions (all included in the rate) that reveal the richly textured history of this complex cluster of islands. Towering waterfalls, visits to cultural museums, an evening pa’ina (feast), marine life including coral gardens that are home to sea turtles, the Humpback National Marine Sanctuary with dolphins and whales, the experience of night snorkeling with Pacific Manta rays in Honomalino Bay and the lore of Captain Cook provide plenty to talk about at the Captain’s Dinner.

“Unless one is a scientist developing a research paper, there are no sacrifices when choosing one itinerary over the other. Both are stunning, especially when seen through the eyes of the experienced naturalist guides who assist both on and off ship,” said Julia Nesbitt, Small Ship Safaris’ Director of Sales & Marketing.
The 48-guest M/V Eclipse has been awarded the Smart Voyager Green Seal of Approval by the Rainforest Alliance. Every cabin boasts either picture windows or large portholes, providing a view of the surrounding waters. The ship’s twin beds can be converted to king-size beds upon request. On board are a library, boutique, lounge and an infirmary with a doctor on board at all times.
From the first moment that children step on board the M/V Eclipse, they are warmly greeted as kids embarking on a new, exciting and educational adventure. A Child Coordinator organizes discovery and learning exercises throughout the cruise that allow children to learn about the unique species found only in these islands while mom and dad can also maximize their Galapagos experience. There are also child-friendly menu options. Children under 12, sharing with adults, receive a 25 percent discount on the departures listed above. The per person double rate starts at $5,150.
