New for 2019, the MY Solaris yacht was perfectly designed for first-class cruises in the Galapagos Islands. With state-of-the-art amenities and modern comforts, the Solaris Galapagos can cater to up to 16 guests in 11 en-suite cabins. On the upper deck are 3 cabins with a queen bed plus a single bed and 2 cabins with a queen bed plus a double sofa bed. On the main deck is one double and 5 single cabins, making the Solaris one of the few yachts in the Galapagos which caters to solo travelers with no single supplement. All cabins feature wardrobes, a writing desk, charging ports, reading lights, and panoramic ocean views.
Bright social areas throughout the yacht make for great spaces to relax in between dives. The indoor lounge is bright and inviting, with comfortable sofas, dining room LCD TV, fully stocked bar, library, and games area. On the main deck is an open-air terrace, perfect for enjoying a cocktail whilst admiring the stunning Galapagos landscapes. On the upper deck is the sun deck with comfortable loungers and an al-fresco dining area where mouthwatering cuisine, freshly prepared by the professional chef is served.
The M/Y Solaris yacht offers distinctive itineraries throughout the Galapagos which make optimal use of your time in the islands, with visits to 2 sites per day. The onboard expert Naturalist Guide brings nature to life as you enjoy unexpected encounters with unique Galapagos wildlife. Two small inflatable dinghies make boarding and disembarking the yacht easier and faster, and increase chances of spotting wildlife along the way. Cruises are from 4-days long and can be extended to combine itineraries to make the most of your time in the Galapagos.
Personal attention from the welcoming crew will make all guests feel right at home. Call us or book online today to reserve your Galapagos small-ship cruise.

- 1) The itinerary of activities was excellent. The guide was from Galapagos and very knowledgeable about the islands and wildlife. Every activity was well timed and each day we experienced something new. 2) The other passengers and crew were very friendly and made for a nice group experience as a single traveler. 3) The boat itself was in excellent condition. Very clean and updated.
The Trip of a Lifetime
The 8 days I spent on Solaris exceeded my (already high) expectations. The ship is gorgeous and the crew and guides are exceptional. As a solo traveler, Galapagos always seemed out of reach because ships with a single berth option are limited. So when I discovered Solaris I felt like I found the needle in the proverbial haystack. Everything about this adventure, from the booking, to the pickup at the airport, to the onboard experience was seamless and stress free. In addition to the normal safety measures for a ship, the Covid precautions were also exceptional. The entire staff and crew were vaccinated, as were all my fellow shipmates. I had 8 days in this little Solaris bubble where we could almost pretend the pandemic wasn't happening. There were so many moments of just pure, unadulterated joy on this trip. The Galapagos were always going to be amazing, but Solaris and her crew (and my wonderful shipmates!) made it unforgettable.

- I had a wonderful stay on the Solaris. The Galapagos are definitely worth it! The islands are secluded and I feel we did a lot of great activities while being on the Solaris. The only downside that's not really clear from the itinerary, if you do the full week of the B itinerary there is 1 day where you don't do very much because some people leave the boat and others come in board they only do the 4 day trip. So that feels like a lost day. The rest of the itinerary was great. And the boat itself is super luxurious with a great crew!
