The MY Passion Yacht is perfect if you are looking for a luxury small ship for your Galapagos expedition. At 48.5m/159ft in length and only taking 14 passengers, the M/Y Passion Galapagos emanates luxury from every corner. MY Passion Yacht has never before been used for tourism and recently underwent a full refurbishment to turn her into the stunning small luxury Galapagos expedition yacht she is. Still retaining many of her original elegant features, such as teak wood decks and rose-colored marble bathrooms, M/Y Passion is one of a kind in the Galapagos.

There are 6 cabins aboard the MY Passion Galapagos: 5 staterooms and 2 VIP/Master staterooms. Each spacious cabin is fully air-conditioned with TVs and private marble bathrooms, while the VIP and Master cabins also have an additional bathroom and separate lounge area. All cabins are on the lower deck to provide added stability and comfort. However, with ample space spread over 4 decks, guests can enjoy privacy without returning to their cabins. The large indoor lounge has a flat-screen entertainment system, comfortable sofas, and a beautiful dining area. Outside offers an immense sun deck with comfortable loungers and a hot tub, an observation deck perfect for whale watching, an al fresco dining area to enjoy the beautiful surroundings, and a Sky Bar and lounge with panoramic views. With a ratio of one staff per guest, you can rest assured that service standards will be high. MY Passion Galapagos is available for individual bookings and a full charter.

Amazing and unforgettable, I felt like I was living a National Geographic Special!

Activities of Snorkeling, birdwatching and hiking the islands we visited.

Recommended for
A packed agenda of activities that immersed you in the history, flora and fauna of the Galápagos Islands. An experienced naturalist with long term history in the islands that made all of our excursions rich with information, as well as PowerPoints about the geology and early European inhabitants of the islands

The most amazing 4 days. We were blown away with everything!

We loved absolutely everything about our trip aboard Passion. It is expensive but we thought totally worth it. We were so well looked after by the crew. Nothing was ever too much trouble and all was done with a big smile. Our guide was unbelievable and so knowledgeable. The food onboard was delicious and we were never hungry! The boat is incredibly spacious and so comfortable. Hot showers in our big bathroom cabins were wonderful after snorkelling each day. The wildlife and the close proximity to birds and animals was so special and something we will never forgot. What an amazing experience.
