One of the best cruise ships in the Galapagos, the Eclipse is an upscale expedition vessel that offers unparalleled levels of comfort and service for its 48 guests. 8,6,5 & 4 day cruises.

Large enough to travel the Pacific in comfort and safety, small enough to dock at remote ports and negotiate inter-island landings with agility. The Eclipse features outstanding open-air spaces, comfortable cabins, and spectacular al fresco dining. One of the most popular areas on board is the Sun Deck, ideal for stargazing, soaking in the Jacuzzi, or relaxing in the comfortable sun loungers. In addition to shaded seating areas and exercise machines, the best seats in the house for wildlife viewing are found at the observation point - an excellent spot for whale and dolphin sightings.  

  • Passengers can enjoy the generous accommodation of a larger vessel, while preserving the atmosphere and exclusivity of a smaller vessel.
  • Small groups with a maximum of 12 guests per naturalist guide, compared to 16 guests per guide on other boats.
  • A well-equipped infirmary with an on-board M.D. that provides services free of charge. Our doctor accompanies passengers during some of the excursions, and is available whenever assistance may be required.
