Galapagos luxury cruise review: one week on board the yacht Passion

“Lift your head up higher Stefan, your upward-facing dog is sloppy again!” Shakira the Sea Lion pulled no punches with her yoga pupils. She’s one of the 50,000 Galapagos sea lions endemic to these volcanic islands and also part of the welcoming committee when you first set foot on her home land. The sea lions were our favourite memory from our luxury cruise in the Galapagos. Their curious and playful nature will completely charm you. They love to pose, are totally unafraid, noisy and highly entertaining. “Lift your head up higher Stefan!” Shakira the Galápagos sea lion pulled no punches...

Galapagos East islands itinerary on the Passion luxury yacht

The Galapagos itineraries are tightly controlled by the Ecuadorian government and the Galapagos National Park because of their sensitive environment. We did a luxury cruise aboard the Passion yacht, which alternates between 2 Galapagos itineraries each week. The first itinerary covers the Eastern islands and the second one covers the West islands.
