Fiddi, was born in the Galapagos islands from one of Galapagos’ first settlers. He built his first boat when he was a kid and has sailed in the ocean his all life, you could say that he is one with the sea. His philosophy is that every sailing should feel like a true family experience. For the Angermeyers, ships have always been a second home and everybody is welcome as a guest. You are invited to explore the islands and get a close look to the wonderful creatures that inhabit them. While on board the Passion, the real luxury is the opportunity to have a once-in-a-lifetime experience that you will cherish with your loved ones.

Whether you’d like to include additional services during your family yacht vacations such as a dedicated nanny so the adults can exercise in the morning or enjoy a private moment in the bar admiring the beautiful landscapes of Galapagos or enjoy a massage by your private masseuse, or request a dedicated photographer to capture every special moment of your cruise, a chef that can make every meal special for children and adults, everything about your vacation will be perfectly crafted to your family’s needs.
Why a luxury charter?
A luxury charter on a small boat charter will always offer a more bespoke experience than a mega yacht or land based excursions. The great advantage of a smaller cruise ship, is that you are not just a name on a manifest, you are a member of an extended Galapagos family.
As you move from island to island, the service and accommodations will not change. Everything will be taken care of at all times, you just need to enjoy the many activities during your cruise.
You will have a dedicated Galapagos National Park with you throughout your stay. Luxury cruises always work with the best staff available in the islands and of course, the better the cruise, the better the guide. A great guide can make this experience unforgettable and the all family will be able to learn more in every activity.
A luxury charter means you can enjoy quality time with loved ones, making indelible memories, and not have to worry about small details. Eating together, snorkelling together and watching the unique marine life of Galapagos, learning as a family about the incredible Galapagos natural history or just resting in the Jacuzzi surrounded by the breathtaking landscapes of the enchanted archipelago that once inspired Charles Darwin during his voyage.
A luxury yacht not only offers comfort but ample spaces that will allow every family member to enjoy a different activity during navigations.
