Infinity Yacht

EXCLUSIVE CHARTER OF THE INFINITY EXPEDITION YACHT

The Infinity Expedition Yacht was built in 2018 and represents the state-of-the-art when it comes to purpose-built yachts. She has been designed from the drawing board up simply to be the most modern, luxurious, and environmentally friendly motor yacht in the Galápagos.

She has been built to exceed all international maritime safety standards and to provide stunning accommodation to complement the wonderful views you will enjoy from her private balconies.

One of Infinity’s unique aspects is that she is designed to take only 20 passengers. Many Galápagos vessels hold 16, because this is the maximum number of guests that may accompany a Galápagos naturalist guide inside the National Park. Infinity has re-written the rule book by providing 2 guides on board, meaning you will enjoy a much more intimate experience with a group of 10. You will get closer to the remarkable Galápagos creatures and have more time to learn all about these fascinating islands from your informative guide.

Other facilities on board to enhance your enjoyment include kayaks, snorkeling gear, and pangas (zodiac boats).

Your time on board will be special. With 13 crew, nothing is too much for your hosts, and the yacht has been designed with ample space for socializing, fine dining and relaxing with a cocktail. Infinity boasts inside and al fresco dining, an al fresco bar, and a sun deck with stunning views and a jacuzzi pool.

Fine dining in relaxed luxury, Infinity is provisioned with some of the best South American and Old-World wines and a wide range of premium drinks. Complimentary filtered water, soft drinks, teas, and coffees are always available at any time you desire. Food on board will be fine dining restaurant quality, and you will enjoy sumptuous meals in the company of your fellow Divine Destination Collection travellers in the spacious dining area or enjoy a relaxed lunch or barbeque on the al fresco dining porch.

Infinity offers the very latest technology and safety combined with levels of comfort and luxury not yet seen in the Galápagos to let you experience these remarkable islands in the style that befits a once-in-a-lifetime trip.

This ship is remarkable allowing for the perfect cruise for those who want an intimate exploration of the wonders of Galápagos.

A few of the unique traits that the Infinity yacht has in store are her well-appointed accommodations, with large staterooms and private balconies. When you need time to relax in your cabin, Infinity delivers a true luxury experience. Every cabin features panoramic windows leading to private balconies, air conditioning, a locker, closet, and safety deposit boxes. Private ensuite bathrooms are beautifully finished with a shower and all rooms feature flat screen TVs and DVD players.

There are 3 types of Staterooms:

MAIN DECK STATEROOMS (5)
