Since 1996, Unigalapagos has owned and operated high quality Galápagos Cruises and so being now known all over the world for their high standards in Service, great itineraries, and superb comfort. Unigalapagos is 100% owned and operated by a Galapagos family, based in the small city of Puerto Ayora in the Santa Cruz Islands in Galapagos. We participate in several social community projects with direct collaboration with the Galapagos Municipality and other authorities, and the payment of our taxes and monetary contributions goes directly to the local community.
Our first ship, the M/Y Darwin Explorer, presented guests with one of the best options for their cruise in the Islands. The gorgeous ship was suited for tourism, from a supply ship that was created for W.W.2 and that was never deployed into the pacific water. According to historic records, this was one of 15 ships that were inspected and christened by Franklin D. Roosevelt, that made its way to become a part of Galapagos History.
In 2007 Unigalapagos continued its Galapagos cruise operations with its own yacht, the M/C Catamaran Anahi a comfortable, spacious 16 passenger Catamaran. The Ecuadorian made ship has had the honor to receive famous and recognized guests form all around the world including the President of Finland. With one of the best itineraries in the islands, an amazing crew, delicious food aboard, and the most fun and experienced guides, the Anahi is certainly one of the most coveted ships in the Archipelago.
