    Rasori Expeditions Galapagos Fernandina Itinerary


    Welcome to Galapagos - Note from Phil

    This will be the sixth trip that I have led to the Galapagos and I cannot wait to return. After the Serengeti Migration, this is my number one wildlife trip on our planet. Our private yacht will carry only our group of 16 which will allow you to have an intimate experience of the islands in a way that non of the other large cruise ships can match. Our ship’s itinerary will take us to nine different islands, each one unique. January is an excellent time to visit the Galapagos as the average temperature is 77 degrees and the seas are calm with very little rain. It is an excellent time for snorkeling as the water is clear and at its warmest. Above you will find a complete detailed itinerary of where we go, what we do each day and what we see. 

    I look forward to having you join this trip.

    About our Private Yacht

    Traveling by yacht is the most authentic way to explore the Galapagos Islands. Our yacht is the perfect size of ship in which to cruise the Galapagos. It is one of the fastest yachts in the Galapagos, reducing the time spent in inter island cruising. It is equipped with kayaks, snorkeling gear, and has an upper sun deck and importantly a covered sun deck which allows protection from the equatorial sun. After enjoying our days out on the islands, we will arrive back to our private yacht as a group and enjoy happy hour and a lovely dinner prepared by the incredible chef.
