The Galapagos M/V Legend is a 100 passenger luxury expedition ship, built in Germany, totally converted in December 2001 in Ecuador's shipyards.

The Legend provides an intimate cruising adventure that allows you to experience up-close the unrivaled beauty of the famous Galapagos Islands.

In the Galapagos Islands nature and wildlife give harmony to visitors who can approach animals that do not fear the presence of humans.

A land where evolution theories and scientific reality reign and conservation strives to keep a stronghold.

The Galapagos is where Charles Darwin gave birth to his theories, where Jacques Cousteau was marveled by the species present and baptized the archipelago as the last wildlife sanctuary, and where you will become a natural history explorer.

This Galapagos luxury cruise has open social areas that will allow you to enjoy nature from its observation decks. It is an ecologically sound vessel bound to be a Legend in a magical realm.

Every naturalist guide on board Galapagos Legend has gone through heavy training at Charles Darwin Station and has years of experience working with the nature and wildlife of the Galapagos Islands.

There are seven highly trained, multilingual naturalist guides that will point out the different species of plants and animals you'll find along the trails of the different Islands in Galapagos.

In addition, the Galapagos Legend has a special glass bottom boat that allows you to observe the Galapagos' marine life from an excellent vantage point, without even getting in the water.

Watch in awe as Galapagos penguins frolic and sea lions cavort, while rays elegantly glide under the boat and glistening schools of fish disperse when sea turtles fly through the water.

The Legend's bright and spacious cabins are comfortable and well-appointed. All cabins feature adjustable climate controls, closet, safety deposit box, and a private bathroom with shower and hairdryer.

This Galapagos boat houses multiple social areas including a coffee bar, various sun decks and observation platforms, and an on-board restaurant serving Ecuadorian and international specialties.

After a full afternoon of touring, cool down in the Galapagos cruise swimming pool, curl up with a good book in the lounge, or indulge in one of the Legend's specialty spa treatments.

Children will delight in the Legend's Kids Corner, outfitted with soft padding, stuffed animals, and a variety of video games and movies.

At nights, you can enjoy live music at the lounge or cocktails at the bar.
