The Eclipse is considered the most exclusive expedition vessel sailing in the Galapagos. With the atmosphere of a small yacht, the Eclipse allows the more discerning traveler to experience one of the world's greatest natural treasures in the comfort of an elegant and unique expedition vessel
While large enough to travel in the Pacific in comfort and safety, the Eclipse is small enough to dock at remote ports. The Eclipse is the ideal size for an expedition-style adventure, allowing guests to receive special attention and service.
Its oversized cabins are well appointed and larger than other ships of comparable size. (Most Galapagos ships the size of the Eclipse carry 80 to 100 passengers. The Eclipse hosts a maximum of 48.)
