Gay luxury cruise in the Galapagos Islands – October 2017

UPDATE JUNE 2017: only 3 cabins (6 spaces) left!

Fancy visiting the Galapagos Islands aboard the Passion: one of the most exclusive luxury yachts in the world with an awesome group of gay guys?

You’re in the right place!

Our first gay cruise to the Galapagos took place in October 2016 and was  such a resounding success, we’re doing it again in October 2017. We’ve teamed up with the highly rated and gay owned Ishpingo Tours in Ecuador to host our second luxury gay cruise to the Galapagos Islands on: 12-21 October 2017.

Spaces aboard the highly rated Passion are limited to 12 people and we expect another sell out in 2017.

And because we love you so much, we’re offering our readers an exclusive 5% discount for this one in a lifetime experience with the promo code NOMADIC5.


The Galapagos Islands are an archipelago of volcanic islands in the Pacific Ocean, around 1,000km (600 miles) from Ecuador’s coast. The variety of unique wildlife here not only inspired Darwin back in 1835, it completely captivated our group when we visited in October 2016.

This is one of the few places in the world where you get so close to the wildlife because they are blazé to humans. You’ll be so spoilt, no other safari will be the same again.

It’s not just above ground you get close with wildlife. There are many opportunities to go snorkelling and discover the rich underwater world surrounding the Galapagos Islands where reef sharks, manta rays, tropical fish and of course the many playful sea lions await you.

The Passion is a 48.5 metres (159 feet) long yacht with 4 decks, originally a private family vessel, which was recently refurbished and adapted to cruise in the Galapagos.

It is simply everything you dreamed of, with an exceptional amount of space for only 12 passengers. There’s no wonder why CNN rated it as one of the top 6 best exclusive charter yachts in the world.

The exclusive vessel has ample social areas, a panoramic sky lounge and bar, a separate dining room, wonderfully spacious sun decks for al fresco dining and a secluded sun deck with Jacuzzi for relaxation and privacy.

Yes that’s right, there’s a Jacuzzi on board. After a day trekking, snorkelling and kayaking, you’ve no idea how amazing it is to relax in this Jacuzzi with a glass bottle of champagne to hand.

There are 6 cabins available on the yacht:

  • 4 staterooms: each fully air-conditioned with private bathroom and bathtub
  • The VIP Suite: larger than the staterooms with 2 ensuite bathrooms
  • The Master Suite: the largest room on the yacht, also with 2 ensuite bathrooms, located at the front of the yacht, offering the best views.

For more information, take a virtual tour of the Passion yacht and read more about it here.

#1 Exclusivity

The Passion is exclusive. It’s the largest charter yacht in the Galapagos, yet it’s designed for only 12 guests. With a passenger crew ratio of 1:1, you’re ensured a first class and personalised service.

Having a smaller group compared to other charters also means that excursions and activities are more involved, allowing closer interaction with your guide and the wildlife. Everyone is guaranteed to have an amazing time with lots of smiles and jazz hands!!

#2 Gay friendly staff

The staff on board the Passion are all male and extremely gay friendly. They made us feel completely at home and at no stage did we ever feel out of place or uncomfortable.

Within the first few days most crew will remember your name, how you like your eggs cooked, how you take your coffee and your choice of drink.

#3 High level of service

Exploring the Galapagos is an experience which will stay with you for the rest of your life. But what makes is even more special is the high level of service on board.

Pampering starts from the moment you step on board. After every excursion, you are warmly welcomed with a fresh hand towel, refreshing drink and snacks. Each time we entered and left our rooms, even for a second, the staff would somehow magically go in after you and make it spotless without you realising.

They truly will do everything possible to ensure you have a memorable and unforgettable experience with your partner. In our case, they arranged our own al fresco romantic dinner underneath the star light…the ideal moment to make a certain proposal (!)

#4 Gourmet food and fabulous cocktails

Without doubt the gourmet food is worth the cruise in itself. Every meal was thoughtfully prepared and expertly served. The chef will cater his menu to the tastes and needs of the group, serving a mix of international and Ecuadorian food.

The bar is stocked up with every alcoholic beverage you can imagine. Fancy a Margarita? Pisco Sour? Old Fashioned? Carlos the barman’s got you covered and will also blow you away with his own unique cocktail recipes.

#5 Help protect the Galapagos Islands

The Passion Yacht is not only one of the most exclusive highly rated yachts in the world, the owners, Angermeyer Cruises have teamed up with WildAid to create the Galapagos Conservation Fund. The aim of this fund is to stop what has become the greatest threat to the Galapagos Islands: illegal fishing and invasive species.

As part of this arrangement, they guarantee that $100 from each booking is donated to this fund. Therefore, by booking our cruise, you will not only be enjoying a one in a lifetime experience, you’ll also be helping to preserve this incredible but sensitive environment.

        • No Jeff we didn’t manage to.

    • Johan … as in Johan Paulik? If so, we’ve met in Bratislava. If not, Johan, please know that I’m interested in this cruise but that $4000+ for the ship’s crew to section off 2 cabins is off-putting.

    • Thanks Rafa! Totally agree with you- we are waiting for the Olympics excitement to die down a bit before factoring in Brazil to our travels in the continent. I went 10 years ago and fell in love with it but so many places (like Floripa) which I really want to explore.

      • Fair… wait for you after the Olympics then hehehe
        Floripa is a great city indeed.

  5. What an awesome opportunity! I’m excited to hear more about that part of the world, which we hope to eventually get to if we can pull ourselves away from Asia!

    • You’re back there? What happened to Spain?!!

      • We will be going back in September after exploring some of Eastern Europe – Spain just wasn’t as good as Asia in terms of pay vs living costs so we’re going back!

    • Can’t WAIT!!! 🙂

  10. ‘Love this post you guys.

    I so wish that I could come with you as it looks like so much fun, but as Amy said, dragging me away from my beloved Berlin and exotic Asia (when I travel long haul), is pretty tough!

    The travel video is great and look at those awesome seals doing their dance routine, and that giant turtle. Wow!

    ‘Nice one guys! Will we see you at the ITB in Berlin?

    • Thanks Victoria! Sadly no ITB for us this year BT definitely next year 🙂
