Highlights of the Aida Maria Yacht

Category: Standard

  • The Aida Maria yacht is a classic Standard Gringo boat, combining comfort, good service, and economical prices. The perfect Galapagos budget tour option!
  • One of very few yachts completely made by hand at the Galapagos Islands, constructed with timber from local farms.
  • The yacht owners have been running tours in Galapagos since the 1960’s, but the family has its roots in Galapagos since the late 1930’s, making the Aida Maria one of the most traditional Galapagos yachts.
  • The Aida Maria has been a very popular Galapagos cruise option with past Happy Gringo clients over the years.

About Galapagos itineraries

On day 1 there is only time for an afternoon visit to be included; similarly, on the final day, there is only a brief morning visit. The reason for this is to connect with the Galapagos flight arrivals and departures at the airport.

Contact us for information about which itineraries will run on different dates through the year, and to check tour availabilities. We often have special Galapagos offers too!

All yacht information is correct at time of publishing but may be subject to change by the yacht operator or Galapagos National Park authority. Published prices may be subject to change without prior notice
