Galapagos Yachts M/Y Eric and M/Y Letty are identical twin shipsEcoventura’s signature fleet includes two identical expedition yachts custom-designed for Galapagos cruising: the M/Y Eric and M/Y Letty. Built in 1994 and refurbished annually, these identical superior first-class sister yachts accommodate no more than 20 guests and feature three decks of ample staterooms with polished teak interiors trimmed with shiny brass fittings.

Accommodations include ten double outside-facing cabins with a window or porthole view, one double bed or two twin lower beds, fully air-conditioned with private bathroom (hot and cold water showers), bio-degradable soap/shampoo dispensers, hair dryer, closet, drawers, intercom and separate climate controls for your comfort. There’s a dining room, well-stocked bar and conference area with a flat screen TV, library and panoramic picture windows. Or you can relax in a lounge chair on the sun deck, enjoying sea breezes and a sky full of stars.

Thanks to the small group size, your expedition to the Galapagos Islands can be at a much more leisurely pace. Snorkeling equipment, wetsuits and sea kayaks are provided at no additional charge.
