G Adventures launches Galapagos ship
Adventure operator, G Adventures has welcomed the first custom-built catamaran to its fleet of vessels in the Galapagos islands.
The new Reina Silvia Voyager features 10 cabins split over two decks, including two dedicated solo cabins.
Yves Marceau, global vice president of product at G Adventures says the addition of the Reina Silvia Voyager will allow G Adventures to cater to the rise in travellers seeking bigger-ticket adventures.
“We’re seeing a very high demand for once-in-a-lifetime adventures such as the Galapagos as travellers commit to trips they’ve long dreamt about.”
The Galapagos has ranked consistently among our top three most popular destinations for British travellers over the past six months,” Marceau said.
Running across the central, east and west islands, the 103-foot Reina Silvia Voyager offers four itineraries, ranging from eight to ten days including Quito and will accommodate up to 16 passengers.
Eight cabins accommodate twin or doubles with two solo cabins catering to individual travellers.
Eight offer private balconies, while all rooms have panoramic windows for optimal ocean viewing, private bathrooms, and energy-saving LED lighting.
Common areas on board will include an expansive third deck with lounge chairs for sunbathing, a covered cocktail bar, grill station and an outdoor jacuzzi tub.
An indoor, air-conditioned salon with a large video screen will enable visual presentations from specially trained naturalists.
The Reina Silvia Voyager has eight on-board kayaks and two zodiacs for guests’ guided use.
Itineraries include the 10-day Galapagos – Central and East islands and 10-day Galapagos – West and Central islands.
