For those who want a dose of ocean-going luxury and fine dining with their Galapagos exploration, the Grace is the boat to choose. Drenched in history and elegance, you'll feel like nothing short of a royal aboard this supremely slick yacht.
With a maximum of 16 people on board, guests can expect immaculate cabins, a spacious sun-deck and a Jacuzzi for wiling away the evenings with a refreshing cocktail in hand.
More energetic guests can set out on sea-kayaks or borrow a mask and snorkel, accompanied by a knowledgable naturalist, to admire the vividly coloured and extensive marine life.
There are nine spacious cabins ranging up to 200 square feet in size, and all with private bathrooms.
As far as foodies are concerned, breakfast and lunch are served buffet style either in the elegant dining room or in the al-fresco decking area. Dinner is a sit-down affair in the dining room. All meals are artfully prepared with fresh produce and local flavours. The little ones can enjoy choosing from the children's menus.
The Grace has had a pretty glitzy existence. She was once owned by gazillionaire Aristotle Onassis, and hosted the likes of Winston Churchill and Princess Grace of Monaco on her honeymoon - hence the more recent name.
