Galapagos charters

View over the Galapagos islands

Plan your charter in the Galapagos

One of the most biologically diverse and scientifically important places on the planet, a yacht charter in the Galapagos offers a truly unique experience amongst beautiful wildlife and untouched landscapes.

Meet the Galapagos giant tortoises and visit the Charles Darwin research station to learn about wildlife conservation programmes. Snorkel with playful sealions and visit Flamingo lagoon, famous for its exotic birdlife. Walk out on the lava flows of volcanic islands and observe small, dark marine iguanas and brightly coloured crabs. Penguins, pelicans, sea turtles, sea lions and blue-footed boobies are all in abundance throughout this breath-taking archipelago.

YPI has a number of yachts available to charter in the Galapagos over the summer and winter seasons.


Modern 31m catamaran TIP TOP II offers a unique Galapagos experience with comfort and stability. The yacht features 10 air-conditioned ensuite cabins for 16 guests, all on the main and upper decks to maximise natural light, views over the islands and wildlife spotting. A sundeck with space for sunbathing and relaxing, a forward observation lounge and an upper deck bar offer various spaces for socialising. Guests are looked after by an experienced, highly recommended crew of eight; including a bilingual naturalist guide and skilled international chef.
