• Two great itineraries in the Galapagos islands, taking you to remote islands in the archipelago.

  • Aida Maria is one of the very few yachts entirely hand made in the Galapagos, using local farm timber.

  • Upper and lower births, all with private bathroom, hot/cold shower, air conditioning and same size.

  • Owners have been running tours in Galapagos since the 1960s, and the family has its roots in Galapagos since the late 1930s.

  • Three meals served daily, after-excursion snacks and non-alcoholic beverages.

  • One of the best value superior tourist yachts in the Galapagos.

I had a fantastic time - the whole trip ran like clockwork.

Our guide and crew of the Aida Maria were more than helpful and very friendly. The Aida Maria is an excellent boat and it was a constant source of amazement that the cook could produce such good quality food for 16 people in such a small space.

I would gladly recommend Andean Trails and Aida Maria to anyone looking to go to the Galapagos.
