The Aida Maria yacht is a classic Standard Gringo boat – sleek, smart and comfortable – and one of very few yachts completely made by hand at the Galapagos Islands of timber from local farms making it one of the most traditional Galapagos yachts. A very popular Galapagos cruise option with a good reputation the Aida Maria offers a varied itinerary – running the complete loop to Isabela and Fernandina islands twice per month and a regular north/south loop twice too

Note: please consult with our sales staff before booking to be sure which itinerary your galapagos cruise will operate.
Important note about Galapagos itineraries: On day1 there is only time for an afternoon visit to be included; and on the final day only a brief morning visit. The reason for this is to connect with the Galapagos flight arrivals and departures at the airport. All Galapagos yachts follow this schedule, not only the Aida Maria.

PAST CLIENTS AIDA MARIA FEEDBACK
“The Aida Maria Galapagos cruise was good value for money … we travelled as a family of 4 and it was perfect for us!” (Jo and Mike, UK)
“Great all round. Well organised, helpful, informative, clean. Everything aboard the Aida Maria was wonderful!” (Corey McIntyre, USA)
“The boat was great; crew very attentive and the guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. The actual trip had a lot more activities (particularly land-based) than we thought there would be too, which was a nice surprise. I can’t really find anything negative to say.” (Mark Miers)
“The experience on the Aida Maria was excellent. The logistics of pick-up and drop-off worked well with our pre-planned flights, and the itinerary was great. I was satisfied with the vegetarian food offerings, and the quality of the food was remarkable for being prepared on a boat.” (Max Raglin)
