G Adventures welcomes new catamaran to Galapagos fleet

TORONTO — G Adventures has welcomed a new member to its fleet of vessels in the Galapagos this summer: a custom-built catamaran, a first for the small-group adventure company.

Named the Reina Silvia Voyager, the catamaran is designed to provide enhanced accommodation options onboard, with 10 spacious cabins split over two decks, including two dedicated solo cabins.

According to Yves Marceau, global vice president of product at G Adventures, the new addition will help the company cater to rising demand for upgraded vessel options.

“The pandemic has made travellers rethink how we holiday and we’re seeing high demand for once-in-a-lifetime adventures as travellers commit to booking trips they’ve long dreamt about,” says Marceau. “The Galapagos has ranked consistently among our top destinations as people continue to be drawn to the diverse wildlife, biodiversity and remote landscapes of the Islands.”

Marceau also notes that G Adventures is seeing a rise in travellers seeking solo cabin options, a trend that’s being driven by more people travelling on their own and wanting their own personal space.

“The Reina Silvia Voyager is our first vessel to feature dedicated solo cabins, offering a much more affordable option for those wanting to room solo,” he adds.

Itineraries for Reina Silvia Voyager include the 10-day Galapagos – Central and East islands aboard the Reina Silvia Voyager, and the 10-day Galapagos – West and Central islands aboard the Reina Silvia Voyager, both priced from $9,049 per person. Price excludes international flights.

ACCOMMODATIONS

Running across the central, east and west islands, the 103-foot, 16-passenger Reina Silvia Voyager offers four itineraries ranging from 8-10 days, including Quito. Eight cabins accommodate twin or double stays, with two solo cabins catering to individual travellers. Eight rooms offer private balconies, while all rooms have panoramic windows for optimal ocean viewing, private bathrooms, bright, contemporary furnishings, artwork by local naturalist photographers and energy-saving LED lighting.

COMMON AREAS & ACTIVITIES

Common areas onboard include an expansive third deck with lounge chairs for sunbathing, a covered cocktail bar, grill station and outdoor Jacuzzi. An indoor, air-conditioned salon with a large video screen enables visual presentations from trained naturalists who will guide each group’s tour.

Landings and exploration of the region’s remote ports and rocky coasts will also be accessible to guests. Reina Silvia Voyager has eight onboard kayaks and two zodiacs for guests’ guided use. A crew of 10, including a dedicated chef and G Adventures Chief Experience Officer (CEO), will serve guests daily.
