About the Samba

The Samba is a Dutch-built, charming private yacht with teakwookd decks, which was perfectly transformed to cruise the Galapagos Islands.

Our dedicated crew and guides are devoted to go the mile to make your journey the trip of a life time.

The Upper deck features an outside dining area and a shaded area ideal for bird and marine life observation.

On the main deck, you have plenty of space to sunbath and relax. You can also read in our library, which doubles as the briefing room to talk about the next day activities.

The ample and comfortable space on deck makes this boat ideal for nature and photography cruises.

Smart Voyager certificate:
Because of a deep concern for the conservation of these Enchanted Isles with their increasing population of close to 25,000 people (2006), The Beagle’s management endeavours to use locally produced goods and services, maintaining its main offices in Puerto Ayora on Santa Cruz Island. The Beagle has been awarded the Smart Voyager certificate, which is granted to tourist operations after careful inspection of their adherence to sound conservation practices.
