Evolution

M/V EVOLUTION will begin operations in early 2004. Our vision for this yacht is to give our clients the feeling of going on board a vessel that brings back memories of travels to far away and exotic lands. She looks as boats did in the 1920's but brings a level of comfort and safety of 2004. She is a 210 ft /64 m. L.O.A. Cruise Ship that accommodates up to 32 passengers in 12 cabins, twin or double and 4 suites.
M/V EVOLUTION looks as boats did in the 1920's but brings a level of comfort and safety of 2004. Our clients will live an experience of close contact with nature on land and in the water... the Quasar Nautica way. The most important issue for us is to show our clients the Islands at their best. Our Nature is Galapagos... She is a 210 ft /64 m. L.O.A. Cruise Ship that accommodates up to 32 passengers in 14 cabins, twin or double and 2 suites. Outfitted for individual passengers or charters, family departures and departures for the more active groups, she offers a mix of beautifully furnished salons, open decks and private areas for those looking for a close experience with the surrounding environment.

This vessel preserves the smaller boat atmosphere and attention to detail we pride ourselves in having on all our boats, with features such as an al-fresco dining area for all 32 passengers, a library/video room. Additionally, the yacht has such amenities as a small hot pool & bar, sunning deck, outside social/observation under a canopied roof deck & bar, air renewal system, boutique and infirmary with a MD on board at all times.

IMPORTANT NOTES:
  • All the itineraries are subject to change without notice due various factors: safety, weather, mechanical breakdown, unforeseen emergencies, and the discretion of the Captain, Guide, and the Galapagos National Park.
  • We will not be held responsible for any refunds whatsoever for changes to the printed or scheduled itinerary
  • Our cruises sailing dates are guaranteed to depart regardless of the number of passengers booked for a certain date.  In case any circumstances of major force would happen, then we would change you to a boat of similar characteristics, same dates, and same category or upgrade you to a better boat with no extra cost.
USEFUL TIPS:
  • The ideal tour length is the 7night/8days cruise.  Since at least part of the first and last day of the tour will be spent at the airport, the shorter tours also spend less time sailing around the islands.
  • We normally suggest our clients to book their international flight at least two nights before their Galapagos cruise, this way in case you loose a connection, your flight is delayed or the weather conditions are not appropriate for landing you don't jeopardize your trip to the islands.
  • Try to avoid making international connections the same day as the flight from the Galapagos Islands may be delayed or changed to an alternate flight
