Ship Profile: Reconstructed in 2005, one of the most talked about additions to the expanding Galapagos fleet, the modern 5-star, expedition-style M/V Galapagos Legend sets sail with a maximum of 100 discriminating explorers per cruise. The Legend's 3, 4, and 7-night weekly year 'round voyages turn Darwin's "living laboratory" into a course in evolution and natural history. The legend is also available for charter.

With 2,746 GRTs, the Legend offers all the amenities of a larger cruise liner, yet she is small enough for that intimate experience with nature that brings you to the Galapagos. This ship has been designed for the most comfortable Galapagos adventure and it is a great choice for individual passengers or group incentive and corporate meeting travel.

The Galapagos Archipelago is located on the Equator and its climate is sub-tropical, allowing cruises to operate on a year round basis. Temperatures are determined almost entirely by the ocean currents that are influenced by the trade winds. Generally, December to May is warm and sunny; June to November is cool and breezy. Most birds nest year round, so you can see courtship, mating, chicks hatching and rearing almost any time of the year.

The viewing and interacting possibilities in the Galapagos waters are endless. Penguins frolic underneath and sea lions cavort and play, while rays elegantly glide under the boat. Glistening schools of fish disperse when sea turtles fly through the water!
