The Queen of the Fleet Cruising the Galapagos


The Reina Silva, otherwise known as the “Queen” of yachts in the Galapagos, has recently been remodeled and is now better than ever.  The vessel, a favorite for years, is well known for having fantastic service, being environmentally conscious, and being dedicated to providing an incomparable Galapagos cruise with excellent knowledgeable guides.

Ideal for families and small groups, the vessel is an excellent option to explore the wide diversity of the Galapagos islands in comfort and style. November 18, 2010  marked her first post-transformation voyage and we were very excited to be a part of it.  As the sister to the luxury Integrity, the First Class Deluxe yacht provides equally knowledgeable guides, superb itinerary and excellent standards of service.

Although the Galapagos islands are officially off  of the list of World Heritage Sites in danger, measures are still strictly observed to make sure that the islands are protected and cared for. The operators and crew of the Reina Silvia are a keen supporter of this and also encourage these measures  so the islands will able to be enjoyed by future generations. The vessel is noted by many as one of the “greenest” yachts in the Galapagos. It was been designed with a waste water treatment plant that ensures water has been treated before into the being released back into the ocean. Being environmentally aware is an essential mindset, that the Reina Silvia is proud to  share.


In addition being eco-friendly,  the vessel carries just 12-16 passengers at most, so  you can be sure your experience on board will be a very intimate one.  Appreciating the beauty and wonders of the island with others of the the same mindset will help to make your cruise an experience that you will remember for a lifetime.

Your stateroom will enjoy stunning views of the ocean.  Each spacious and comfortable cabin is very private.  You’ll find a sundeck, salon, and bar on board, to help you make the most of the journey when your not exploring the water and marine life with the ship’s excellent  snorkeling and kayaking equipment. Overall,  the amenities provided will allow  for a wonderful cruising experience.

Join us for an unforgettable cruise on the newly renovated Reina Silva in comfort  and style in one of the most unique locations in the world.
