Galapagos Cruise Ship

Galapagos Legend - Luxury Cruise Ship

The Galapagos Legend, with capacity for 100 guests, was extensively refitted in 2017 to better enhance your Galapagos experience. As well as being the fastest cruise ship operating in the islands, she remains the only vessel with an onboard pool. Fast, sleek and beautifully appointed, she retains a cozy, homely and intimate atmosphere. Her classic, yet contemporary interiors perfectly balance the huge open deck space.

Go Galapagos hiking

Enjoy in total we offer a wide selection of itineraries that cover the Archipelago, from 3, 4, 7, 10 and up to 14 nights cruising in complete comfort and style. Each island in the archipelago is unique in its own way, thus offering a different experience at all times.  Every day wake up to a good morning and sail through paradisiacal waters that will stun you with their landscape.  The islands are the result of the volcanic activity that teamed up with the wildlife leading to the birth of the natural heaven that it is today.

The islands and the M/V Galapagos Legend experience offer activities to a public of all ages, and it is a destination that calls younger generations that are interested in water and land activities.  Such activities involve a close encounter with the spectacular and unique nature composed of fearless animals.   Families are delighted with a memorable cruise trip; little ones have a great time while enjoying the magic of the Enchanted Islands.  Top notch experiences and itineraries are offered.

Go Galapagos Dinghy Rides

Be embraced by the islands that were the inspiration of Darwin on his trip in the H.M.S Beagle.  What he saw gave birth to his theories which led him to develop his evolutionary theory by means of natural selection.  These strange and exotic species that are fearless to humans allow for visitors to walk alongside prehistoric giant reptiles, and look alike small dinosaurs with big claws and sharp crowns that lay along the shore to absorb the warmth given by the sun. Also, Jacques Cousteau was amazed by the Galapagos Dragons and baptized the archipelago as “the last wildlife sanctuary”.  The Enchanted Islands will make any adventurer a natural history explorer.

M/V Galapagos Legend awaits you with open arms to create moments that you will cherish for a lifetime.
