If you are a true lover of nature, the Galapagos Islands is the right destination for your next holidays. To reach this heavenly archipelago, you have to travel by taking a flight from the mainland Ecuador and alight at either San Cristobal or Baltra. You can find delight by visiting the various attractions of this place that includes its unique wildlife and the ocean surrounding the islands. This place is also considered as the world’s second largest marine reserve and the renowned archipelago is known as a whale sanctuary.
The Merak is recently back from a complete overhaul and is a very welcome addition to the Basic Gringo class fleet! It is an attractive, small 8-person sailing yacht – and in fact the only available budget Galapagos yacht that can genuinely operate with sails (although it does not necessarily always do so). It is smaller than any other yacht and has fairly basic facilities but before the renovation this was always a popular boat with our clients, and although the price has since risen it is still a very nice yacht option that often has available spaces.
