G Adventures has welcomed its first custom-built catamaran to its fleet of vessels in the Galapagos this summer. Citing a rise in demand for upgraded vessel options, G Adventures says the new Reina Silvia Voyager is designed to provide “enhanced” accommodation options with 10 cabins split over two decks, including two dedicated solo cabins.

Yves Marceau, global vice president of product at G Adventures, says the addition of the Reina Silvia Voyager to the fleet enables G Adventures to cater to the rise in travellers seeking both “bigger adventures and more activity” during their holiday time.

“The pandemic has made travellers rethink how we holiday and we’re seeing high demand for once-in-a-lifetime adventures as travellers commit to booking trips they’ve long dreamt about. The Galapagos has ranked consistently among our top destinations as people continue to be drawn to the diverse wildlife, biodiversity and remote landscapes of the Islands,” said Marceau.

He also added that the tour operator is seeing a rise in travellers seeking solo cabin options as well as those wanting their own personal space following the pandemic. The Reina Silvia Voyager is G Adventures’ first vessel to feature dedicated solo cabins

Running across the central, east and west islands, the 103-foot Reina Silvia Voyager offers four itineraries, ranging from eight to 10 days, including Quito, and will accommodate up to 16 passengers. Eight cabins accommodate twin or double stays, with two solo cabins catering to individual travellers. Eight rooms offer private balconies, while all rooms have panoramic windows for ocean viewing, private bathrooms, contemporary furnishings, artwork by local naturalist photographers and energy-saving LED lighting.

Common areas on board include a third deck with lounge chairs for sunbathing, a covered cocktail bar, grill station and outdoor jacuzzi. An indoor, air-conditioned salon with a video screen enables visual presentations from the trained naturalists who will guide each group’s tour, and help guests learn about the iconic wildlife and culture of the Galápagos Islands’ inhabitants.

Landings and exploration of the region’s remote ports and rocky coasts will also be accessible to guests, with Reina Silvia Voyager’s eight on-board kayaks and two zodiacs for guests’ guided use. A crew of 10, including a dedicated chef and G Adventures Chief Experience Officer (CEO), will serve guests daily.
