14 passengers, 1 guide, 1 cruise director, 11 crew
The Wild Aid’s Passion gives new meaning to the concept of “luxury yacht” in the Galápagos archipelago. The yacht was originally privately owned by a family on the Italian Riviera. It has been beautifully renovated by the current owners to the high standards of the Galápagos while maintaining the original elegant details.
However, the Passion is not only special because of its luxurious interior, comfortable lounges, spacious cabins and marble bathrooms with bathtub. It is one of the largest yachts on the islands and has the best ratio between the number of crew members and passengers. You have the opportunity to roam around and meet other passengers in the common areas. However, you also have the option of finding a quiet spot on one of the four decks for some privacy without having to go back to your cabin.
The Passion sails with 12 crew members, including a chef and a cruise director, plus a bilingual guide. This knowledgeable crew will offer you a very attentive and personal service. The chef can meet all dietary requirements – from kosher to vegan, and everything in between – with notice before departure.
Moreover, the Passion is one of the safest, most stable ships on the islands. The Passion is a mono-ship yacht with a draft of 10 feet. This means that a large part of the ship is always below the waterline. This provides more stability when navigating in open water or when it is anchored at one of the beautiful visitor locations.
On the ship you will find, divided over 4 decks, everything your heart desires: inside is a large indoor lounge with comfortable sofas, a beautiful bar and a nice restaurant area. Through the large windows of these spaces you are always in contact with the beautiful surroundings outside. Outside is a very large sun deck where you can have breakfast in the open air, a sky bar to have a drink and a sheltered sun deck with jacuzzi and seating areas to lounge in privacy.
The full name of the Passion is WildAid’s Passion. The owners of the Passion have entered into a partnership with “WildAid”; an NGO based in California that is committed to reducing illegal fishing, trade in wildlife and protecting nature. The Passion donates $100 to WildAid for every booking.
With a wide choice of cruises ranging from 4, 5, 8 to 15 days, there is always a nice trip that suits your needs.Back to overview
