Included in our adventure packages is our exclusive private yacht, which has a level of comfort never before achieved in the Galapagos islands.
Built with the highest standards of safety and comfort our guests can expect navigations to be stable with premium services.
Due to the yacht's size, weight and stabilizers, seasickness is reduced. Guests can have a relaxed cruise to nearby islands and experience the magic of Galapagos.
*Daily yachts explorations visit TWO different islands per day.
Guests get assigned a private cabin per family for their navigation. This additional perk allows guests added privacy as well as somewhere to put their belongings.
After swimming, hiking or snorkeling, guests can relax in their private cabins, take a fresh-water shower and enjoy a pleasant "siesta" between island visits.
After a day tour adventure aboard our private yacht, enjoy your evenings in our exclusive Lodge.
All excursions are accompanied by naturalistic guides that provide briefings on your adventure-full day ahead.
This excursion is designed to offer guided coastal fishing and snorkeling tour experiences around Santa Cruz island.
These boats will take a maximum of eight Pikaia Lodge guests on half-day tours, where Galapagos fishermen share their traditional fishing techniques.
Using the trolling method, they can catch-and-release, or choose one fish to take back to the Lodge to be freshly prepared by our chefs.
After fishing, guests can swim, snorkel and relax in lagoons and beaches. These spectacular and pristine sites are full of marine life, rarely visited by tourists.
This new fishing-snorkeling tourism model has been recently approved and promoted by the Galapagos National Park as a sustainable economic alternative for local fishermen.
Pikaia Lodge supports this sustainable initiative and has worked with local fishermen to incorporate them into its Santa Cruz Island exploration programs.
These boats are especially equipped for the comfort and safety of our guests.
The crew consists of local fishermen, whom we have trained for operating to our standards.
The Galapagos Islands' surrounding waters are one of the seven underwater wonders of the world. It is the second largest protected Marine Reserve in the world, a UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site and the greatest protected shark sanctuary in the world's oceans.
A 105 ft oceangoing Galapagos Aggressor III is considered today one of the finest dive yachts in the world.
It was custom designed and is constantly renovated and improved with the latest state-of-the-art equipment to deliver the most comfortable and safest liveaboard dive experience to its guests.
Galapagos offers some of the most challenging and spectacular dive experiences.
Divers encounter many large pelagic species including whale sharks, schools of hammerhead sharks, sea lions, tuna, dolphins, manta rays, marine iguanas, as well as dense schools of tropical fish and many endemic species found nowhere else in the world. It is the ultimate diver paradise and an underwater photographer's dream.
