Galapagos Private Sailing and Motor Yacht Holidays

There are few experiences which can compete with a private sailing holiday. The lure of the ocean, constantly changing, pristine, thunderous, alive or calm and azure, transfixing us with its infinite horizon. In practical terms, it offers one of the finest family holidays where quality time can be spent together, from snorkelling, scuba diving, fishing and sea kayaking to swimming with dolphins and whale sharks. Lazy lunches on private islands, swimming in the sea, dining on freshly caught fish, learning to sail – the possibilities are endless.

We offer the most wonderful private sailing holidays and one of our favourites is chartering a boat in the Galapagos Islands – these can be motor cruisers or catamaran yachts. Spend the days exploring pristine islands, replete with the most astonishing and beguiling wildlife. Snorkel or dive amongst seals during the day, and walk on the different islands, each showcasing its own speciality. Take a private professional wildlife photographer with you, who can both enhance your own photographic skills as well as capturing yours for posterity. With your very own water playground devoid of others on your doorstep, this is one of the most exhilarating and wonderful ways to go on holiday, as a stand-alone or perhaps after a safari.
