G Adventures premieres bespoke new vessel

G Adventures has welcomed its first custom-built catamaran to its fleet of vessels in the Galapagos this northern hemisphere summer.

With demand for upgraded vessel options on the rise, the new Reina Silvia Voyager from G Adventures is designed to provide new accommodation options with 10 cabins split over two decks – including two dedicated solo cabins.

Yves Marceau, global vice president of product at G Adventures, said 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 on their travels.

“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,” Marceau said.

“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.

“We’re also seeing a rise in travellers seeking solo cabin options, driven by more people travelling on their own, as well as those wanting their own space following the pandemic.

“The Reina Silvia Voyager is our first vessel to feature dedicated solo cabins, offering a much more affordable option for those wanting to room solo.”

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 travellers.

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, bright, contemporary furnishings, artwork by local naturalist photographers and energy-saving LED lighting.

Common areas on board include an expansive third deck with lounge chairs for sunbathing, a covered cocktail bar, a grill station and an outdoor jacuzzi for relaxing under the sun or stars.

An indoor, air-conditioned salon with a large 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 wild, rocky coasts will also be accessible to guests, thanks to the 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, will serve guests daily.

Itineraries include:

  • 10-day Galapagos – Central and East Islands aboard the Reina Silvia Voyager – priced from AUD$9,649 per person.

  • 10-day Galapagos – West and Central islands aboard the Reina Silvia Voyager – priced from AUD$9,649 per person.
