Majestic is a pleasurable way to get to know the Galapagos

This first-class, motorized yacht is 35 meters (115 feet) long and is especially designed to sail through these islands. Its common areas and suites have large picture windows to assure you grand vistas of the seascapes as you cruise from destination to destination.

Throughout the expedition, you will dine on fine cuisine. At the end of a day of hiking and snorkeling, you can relax chat with your shipmates about your explorations in one of the spacious social areas. Up on the sundeck, you will have the opportunity to relax with a drink from the bar or soak in the Jacuzzi. As the yacht cruises to the next day’s destination, you’ll rest peacefully in one of the nine double cabins equipped with air conditioning and private bathroom with hot water.

Majestic offers excellent four-, five- and eight-day itineraries. On hand are certified naturalist guides to answer your questions and nine crewmembers to attend to your needs.

San Cristóbal Airport

In the morning, you will arrive at San Cristobal Island. After passing through immigration and baggage claim, you will be met by the Majestic staff and transferred to the yacht. You will be shown to your cabin where you will have some time to settle in before lunch and a welcome briefing.

El Junco (San Cristóbal Island)

In the afternoon, your first visit takes you to El Junco Lagoon. Located in the highlands 19 kilometers from Puerto  Baquerizo  Moreno,  El  Junco  is  located  in  the  caldera  of  an  extinct  volcano. Rainwater feeds the lagoon. There are many farms and ranches in this area of San Cristobal Island, and sometime cows can be found near the lagoon.

Post Office Bay (Floreana Island)

In the morning, you will visit the famous Post Office Bay. You will land on a beach and head to a spot where 18th century whalers placed a wooden barrel used as an unofficial mail box. The custom continues to this day with Galapagos visitors. So, don’t forget your postcards, and don’t be surprised if the post card arrives to its destination before you even get home!

Cormorant Point & Devil´s Crown (Floreana Island)

Your afternoon visit is to Cormorant Point. Here you will enjoy a hike to a salt-water lagoon which is home to flamingos.  You will also have a chance to snorkel around Devil’s Crown which is the rocky remains of an offshore volcano sticking out of the water. This is a great location to see a wide range of marine creatures.

Suarez Point (Española Island)

In the morning, you will visit Suarez Point. On the trail you will have the chance to see blue-footed boobies, albatrosses, and Nazca boobies. This island is the breeding site of nearly all of the world’s 12,000 pairs of waved albatrosses.  You will also visit a beautiful site on the ocean front where there is a cliff that the large albatrosses use as a launching pad! You will have the chance to see the famous blowhole that spurts water into the air. The landscape is great for photography.

Gardner Bay (Española Island)

In the afternoon, excursion takes you to the spectacular Gardner Bay. After landing, you can walk across a lovely white-sand beach amongst a busy sea lion colony or dive into the water to swim with sea lion pups. You may also see curious mockingbirds on the beach.

Twin Craters (Santa Cruz Island) / Baltra airport

In the morning, you will visit Twin Craters located opposite to each other on both sides of the road leading from Puerto Ayora to Baltra. The name is only figurative; not real craters, these formations were created by the collapse of surface material in underground fissures and chambers. The view is breathtaking.

After visiting the Twin Craters, you will be transferred to the Baltra airport to catch your flight to Guayaquil or Quito on mainland Ecuador.
