Superyacht Charter Galapagos

Galapagos Islands Yacht Charter

Private Yachting Cruises in the Galapagos Islands

Get closer to local wildlife than you ever thought possible in the Galapagos Islands. One of the few locations in the world that does not have an indigenous population, these islands have been completely preserved from human development. Offering unique adventures in pristine conditions, Galapagos is best explored from a private superyacht Charter. Rent a crewed motor or sailing boat with YPI to have the best cruising possible in Galapagos. This is an example of an eight day yacht charter itinerary for the Galapagos Islands. Yacht charter itineraries are created individually for every client based around personal preferences and how you want to spend your time onboard your superyacht in South America.

Superyacht Charter Santa Cruz

Santa Cruz

Giant Tortoises

Transfer from Baltra airport to your private superyacht on Santa Cruz Island. Take a trip into the Highlands, home of the iconic Galapagos giant tortoise, stopping en route to explore Los Gemelos, hardened lava sink holes. Later, visit the Charles Darwin Research Station and Galapagos National Park HQ to learn of the conservation, research and repatriation programmes that are saving tortoises and iguanas from extinction. Enjoy dinner onboard as your private superyacht sets off for Punta Cormorant.

Superyacht Charter Punta Cormorant

Punta Cormorant

Flamingos and Sea Turtles

Mail your holiday postcards in the wooden barrel which has been the mariners' 'post office' since 1793. See the green beach, made so by the presence of olivine crystals, next to Flamingo Lagoon. Pintail ducks, large-billed flycatchers, and many other shorebirds can also be spotted here. Visit Flour Beach, where Green Sea Turtles nest, or snorkel with playful sea lions at Champion Island. You may also spot the nearly-extinct Floreana Mockingbird here. Stroll along Black Beach before dinner onboard your crewed motor or sailing boat. Overnight sail.

Punta Moreno Superyacht Charter

Punta Moreno

Cormorants, Penguins and Pelicans

Wake up at Moreno Point on Isla Isabela and walk through lava fields at the base of the Cero Azul volcano. This dramatic landscape is dotted with lagoons alive with flamingos, paint-billed crakes, white-cheeked pintails and common gallinules. After lunch onboard your crewed superyacht, float silently in a panga (a small, shallow skiff) through the narrow channels of Elizabeth Bay’s mangrove lagoon to see rays, cormorants, penguins, pelicans, lava herons, sea turtles, sea lions and blue-footed boobies.

Superyacht Charter Isabela Island

Urbina Bay, Isabela

Alcedo Tortoises and Igunas

In 1954, volcanic activity lifted a 6km stretch of Urbina Bay’s coastline, exposing coral heads and other marine fossils. Today, visitors can wander the remains of the seabed through a skeletal coral garden, now home to lizards and mockingbirds, and encounter iguanas and Alcedo tortoises. Later, move on to Tagus Cove. A short, steep hike passes Darwin Lake, where tree finches, Galapagos hawks and yellow warblers gather. Kayak along the cliffs to spot penguins and look out for Urbina Bay's colourful land iguanas. In the evening, enjoy a gourmet dinner prepared by the chef onboard your crewed motor or sailing boat.

Superyacht Charter Fernandina Island

Punta Espinosa, Fernandina

Sealife, Volcanoes and Sunsets

Fernandina, the most pristine island of the Galapagos, is highly volcanically active with frequent eruptions, the latest in September 2017. A young and uninhabited island of high ecological value, its ecosystems harbour unique species such as terrestrial and marine iguanas, snakes, flightless cormorants and penguins. Walk out onto the lava flow through an abundance of small, dark marine iguanas and brightly coloured Sally Lightfoot crabs and later, enjoy a stunning sunset from the decks of your superyacht.

Superyacht Charter Punta Vicente Roca

Punta Vicente Roca

Nesting birds, whales and dolphins

Back on Isla Isabela, Punta Vicente Roca can be seen only from the water. The geological formations provide a beautiful backdrop for numerous nesting birds, including blue-footed and Nazca boobies, gulls, storm petrels, and brown noddy terns. The water here is cold and it is common to observe “feeding frenzies”, with groups of whales, dolphins, sea lions, tunas, and marine birds feeding simultaneously. To the south of the cove, there is a small colony of fur seals. Overnight cruise from here with your crewed motor or sailing boat.

Superyacht Charter Santiago

Puerto Egas, Santiago

Fur Seals and Sharks

Wake up on Isla Santiago in Puerto Egas and follow a trail to see fur seal grottoes, American oystercatchers, marine iguanas and sea lions. Alternatively, take the route to the Salt Mine Volcano to watch the flamingos that gather here, and take in a panoramic view of the famous Pinnacle Rock on Bartolemé Island. Head to Espumilla, a red-sand beach and sea turtle nesting site, then snorkel Buccaneer Cove spotting sea lions, sea turtles, rays, sharks, pelagic fishes and rock formations. Enjoy the final sunset of your superyacht charter.

Superyacht Charter North Seymour Island

North Seymour Island

Blue-footed Boobies

Dock your motor or sailing boat on North Seymour, where trails lead to the largest colony of magnificent frigate birds in Galapagos, with blue-footed boobies and occasional land iguanas. Head along the coast to observe sea lions and marine iguanas before transferring to Baltra for your trip home.
