Mary Anne Galapagos Cruises

The 16-passenger S/S Mary Anne is a spacious and truly romantic sailing ship that cruises the Galapagos Islands majestically. If you are seeking an exquisite sailing experience in the Galapagos, the Mary Anne is the ship for you. 

The Mary Anne operates two unique 8-day Galapagos cruise itineraries, which can be combined for an all-encompassing 15-day cruise. Contact AdventureSmith Explorations’ Galapagos small ship cruise experts for information on which of the Mary Anne Galapagos cruises is best for you. Our award-winning crew has personal experience sailing in the Galapagos Islands and can recommend the best options to suit your travel interests and timeline. 

A Galapagos cruise aboard Mary Anne combines enjoyable sailing, simple comforts and delicious meals with amazing up-close wildlife experiences. Ample deck space encourages guests to relax and take in the sights as the Mary Anne cruises gracefully through the Galapagos archipelago. Talented naturalist guides bring you into intimate contact with the unique creatures and ecosystems of the Galapagos. Spend time ashore hiking among albatross, kayaking with marine iguanas, snorkeling with sea lions, Zodiac cruising to remote ecosystems or perhaps just relaxing on a crescent beach. The Mary Anne is a great choice for travelers interested in a Galapagos cruise by comfortable sailboat. 

Because the winds and currents in the Galapagos Islands are unpredictable, the S/S Mary Anne will raise her sails as much as possible but may also travel under motor power to reach the next destination on her Galapagos cruise. 

On the Western Galapagos Islands itinerary, help the crew hoist the sails (if the winds permit) to explore where astute dolphins, whales and deep-sea creatures head to the wild seaward shores and spend a full afternoon searching for awe-inspiring mammals, an unusual itinerary addition, but a beloved activity. Discover some of the most fascinating and best kept destinations in the world: lands that evoke in their geology the beginning of time. Head to backwater lagoons to enjoy the flamingo’s courtship performances, watch flightless cormorants feeding their young at their nests and swim with sea turtles, penguins, sea lions and hundreds of tropical fish all while exploring on a classy, nautical sailing ship. 

On the Eastern Galapagos Islands itinerary, sail through the charismatic islands of Baltra, Santa Cruz, Genovesa, Bartolome, Chinese Hat, South Plaza, Santa Fe and Espanola to encounter dramatic cliff edge landscapes teeming with seabirds and booby nesting sites that showcase in real life the everyday trials of the survival of the fittest. Subtle differences in wildlife and geology make each of the islands in the Galapagos archipelago unique, from those with green sand to islands fringed in powdery white, from colonies of sooty-toned iguanas to those fire-red, from finches that in one site crush their food with heavy beaks to those that, only a brief sail’s distance away, delicately tap their narrow bill on wood to grab a bite.

Both of Mary Anne’s Galapagos itineraries are certain to impress lifelong memories. However, you can set your own agenda by booking this special motorsailor as one of our private Galapagos yacht charters for your group of 16 or fewer.

Itinerary

Mary Anne Eastern Islands Galapagos Cruise Itinerary

The Mary Anne’s Eastern 8-day small ship cruise itinerary feels like an authentic exploration aboard the unique 16-passenger 3-masted sailing ship. Hoist the sails with the crew to reach unspoiled white sand beaches where Galapagos sea lions bask in the sun and marine iguanas crawl out of the sea to dry off on the sun-baked lava rocks.

SAT - Embark Baltra to Black Turtle Cove (Santa Cruz)

Upon arrival at Baltra airport, meet your local representative then board a private van that will take you to the Mary Anne and navigate a short distance to Black Turtle Cove, a large mangrove lagoon on the north coast of Santa Cruz Island. Pelicans and herons roost on the branches, while marine dwellers such as green sea turtle or golden ray may cruise right next to the dinghy that takes you through the mangroves.

SUN - Darwin Bay & El Barranco (Genovesa)

Travel to Genovesa Island and reach Darwin Bay (wet landing), a unique site lined with red mangroves and soft-haired prickly pear cacti, where red-footed boobies and great frigatebirds perch tamely. In the afternoon, at El Barranco (dry landing), climb the edge of a cliff where frigatebirds, masked boobies and red‐footed boobies nest. Seek out the impressive red‐billed tropicbird amidst Galapagos storm petrels.

Day 3
MON - Bartolome & Chinese Hat

Begin today with a dry landing at Bartolome Island. Climb wooden steps to reach the summit of this spatter cone for a most breathtaking panorama of the islands, well-photographed Pinnacle Rock, views of neighboring Santiago Island and many other central islands in the distance. In the afternoon, visit Chinese Hat, an island that’s less than 820 feet in size and gets its name from its shape, best appreciated from the north side. Lava formations can be seen on the western side of the island, formed under the sea and raised upward, making coral heads on the lava possible to observe. Be amazed by the landscapes covered with sea lion colonies, marine iguanas and Galapagos penguins.

Day 4
TUE - Rabida & Cerro Dragon (Santa Cruz)

This morning, make a wet landing onto Rabida’s deep-red beaches to explore the island’s fascinating interior and saltwater lagoon. Darwin’s finches, Galapagos mockingbirds and yellow warblers feed off the vegetation. Given the right time of year, you may observe brown pelicans nesting on salt bushes that fringe the beach. This afternoon, head across to Cerro Dragon on Santa Cruz’s northwest shore (dry landing) to visit a saltwater lagoon, home to greater flamingos, black-necked stilts and white-cheeked pintails. Further inland explore a fantastic land iguana nesting site.

Day 5
WED - Puerto Ayora & Tortoise Breeding Center (Santa Cruz)

Spend today visiting Santa Cruz Island´s most famous highlights. Make a dry landing at the dock of Puerto Ayora then head to the island’s highlands. This area, in contrast to the coastal region, has lush vegetation and forest due to the humidity in the higher regions. Visit one of the ranches of the area where it is possible to see giant tortoises in their natural habitat. As these animals migrate from the coastal area to the highlands and back, the visited ranch will depend on the presence of the tortoises since they roam free and change locations. This is also a good place to see the Galapagos hawk, barn owl and other birds such as the vermilion flycatcher or the yellow warbler that fill the surrounding forests. Enjoy lunch back on the ship, then head back to Puerto Ayora for your second visit of the day: the Fausto Llerena Tortoise Breeding Center, where you will see tortoises from different islands. The animals are found in large semi‐natural pens for their protection but also to ensure an easy view for visitors. The pens are divided according to four different stages: eggs, neonates, juveniles (held here until they are mature enough to be repatriated) and adults. After this visit, take time to browse the shops in the town of Puerto Ayora before boarding the ship, as this is the only opportunity for souvenir shopping during the itinerary.

Day 6
THU - South Plaza & Santa Fe

Begin today with a dry landing on one of the oldest docks of the archipelago. Colorful South Plaza is home to vibrant green prickly pears, deep red sesuvium and coppery-orange land iguanas. Impressive seaward cliffs are excellent for observing a variety of coastal birds. In the afternoon, arrive at Santa Fe (wet landing) to look for the endemic species of land iguana, which are larger and more yellow than land iguanas on other islands. The largest prickly pear cacti in the Galapagos are also found here.

Day 7
FRI - Punta Suarez & Gardner Bay (Espanola)

Spend the day on fantastic Espanola Island, starting with Punta Suarez on a trail that is about 2 miles long for a walk that takes about 2 hours. A geyser near the trail sprays water some 75 feet into the air, making it one of the most popular landing sites in Galapagos. The highlights include sea lions sometimes seen body‐surfing in the large breaks, large marine iguanas with red‐colored males in the breeding season, oystercatchers, blue‐footed and Nazca boobies, Galapagos hawks, Galapagos doves, swallow‐tailed gulls, red-billed tropicbirds in flight, waved albatross who are present only from April to December, Espanola mockingbirds and lava lizards. The last three species are endemic to Espanola Island.

In the afternoon, head to Gardner Bay (wet landing), an outstanding beach with sea lions, marine iguanas and the intrepid Espanola mockingbird. Nearby there is a good spot for snorkeling in Gardner Islet, where playful sea lions might join you. Enjoy more snorkeling at Osborn Islet, a great place to observe great quantities of marine life.

Day 8
SAT - Twin Craters (Santa Cruz) & Disembark Baltra

After breakfast, disembark in Puerto Ayora to take your transport to the Baltra airport, making a short stop to visit the Twin Craters. Los Gemelos (twins) are two deep craters located to the side of the road that leads to Puerto Ayora from the other side of the island. These huge holes were probably created in a volcanic explosion or by magma chambers underneath the island’s surface. This is also a good place to see the Galapagos hawk and barn owl of this island and the surrounding forests filled with birds such as the vermilion flycatcher or the yellow warbler. The contrast of the highlands vegetation with the arid coastal zones is notable. After this visit head to the Baltra airport for your flight back to the mainland.

Day 1
SAT - Embark Baltra to Tortoise Breeding Center (Santa Cruz)

Upon arrival at Baltra airport, meet your local representative then board a bus that will take you to Puerto Ayora for the first visit on the islands: the Highlands of Santa Cruz. The Highlands are lush and green in contrast to the arid coastal vegetation. The highland forests are dominated by the endemic Scalesia tree and are home to many bird species, including the short-ear owl. Here, have lunch at a local ranch while looking for the famous giant tortoises, which are in constant migration from the highlands to the coast.

After lunch, head to Puerto Ayora for the second visit of the day, to the Fausto Llerena Tortoise Breeding Center, where you will see tortoises from different islands. The animals are found in large semi-natural pens for their protection, but also to ensure easy viewing. The pens are divided according to four different stages: eggs, neonates, juveniles (held here until they are mature enough to be repatriated) and adults.

Floreana was the first island in the archipelago to be inhabited, since it has one of the very few fresh water sources. Visit this fresh water source known as Asilo de La Paz, as well as the caves that served as hideouts for pirates and where the first Galapegueño was born, which according to the stories of Floreana, the infamous Baroness Eloise Wagner von Bousquet had lovers who mysteriously began to disappear after settling on the island. After this visit, enjoy the best opportunity for a not‐so‐common yet beloved activity in the archipelago: a full afternoon navigation to look for whales and dolphins.

"Magical"

I was thoroughly pleased with my trip and AdventureSmith. The two weeks in the Galapagos were amazing. They were as magical as when I visited in 1989.

"Who Doesn't Want to Go to the Galapagos?"

The Galapagos was obviously incredible and reminded me that kindness towards all could create an environment free to develop naturally. Who doesn't want to go the the Galapagos or Machu Picchu?
