About The Yacht

“I saw a lot of boats at anchor when I first arrived in the Galapagos, but the M/Y Grace stands out because she is so beautiful. The best looking boat in the Galapagos for sure. I fell in love with her classic lines and sea kindliness. Montserrat was our host and she did a fantastic job. Nothing was too much trouble and she made certain that everyone's needs were satisfied and she did all of her work in great style. I wish she worked for me!”
Paul Rose (BBC Nature Show Host)

“The Galapagos trip on the Grace was nothing short of fabulous. The crew was wonderful and Caroline, the cruise director, was thoughtful and meticulous. Everyone seemed to do more than one job. Rafael, our guide was articulate, extremely knowledgeable and went out of his way to make certain everyone was happy and satisfied. He is an amazing asset for Quasar Expeditions.”
Susan R. Ketterlinus

"I thought the Grace was a wonderful yacht. My husband and I probably had one of the smallest cabins and we found it very comfortable and well designed. The A class doubles looked wonderful! Our children were down below in C5 and loved their cabin!”
Sarah Westad

About The Naturalist Guides Onboard

“Rafa, the naturalist was very knowledgeable about all things Galapagos and he imparted his knowledge in away that everyone could understand. He was a joy to be around. In a particular, he knew when other ships were going to be in the area and would work around their schedule so it was as if we were the only ones around.”
Ruth Bronston

“Rafael was the best! We can't imagine there being any better guide. What we believe made him special was the enthusiasm he brought to our journey. He really loved showing us his islands and we learned so much from him. In fact, he even got my husband (he's not a great swimmer) to go snorkeling. He stayed right by his side in the water so he'd feel comfortable. He told him that he didn't want him to miss the magic below the water as was above the water and this was what convinced my husband to try it.”
Lili Mehlab

“Our guide (Rafa) was fantastic. With a scientific background, he offered insight into the natural history of the islands well beyond what I would have expected from an ordinary guide. He was very professional and cared about each passenger from pickup to drop-off.”
Benson Yang

About The Food

“The food was also fantastic onboard ‐ no one would ever go hungry on the Grace.”
Owen Jones

“I was never left hungry. Food quality was great and variety was above our expectations.”
Patricia Phelan

“The food onboard was delicious. We especially liked the snacks after each of our outings on the islands. We all applauded our chef on our farewell cocktail.”
Michael Phillips

About The Small Boat Experience

“Smaller yacht with fewer passengers meant I could get to know people well during the week. It was very personal. It also meant there was a closer interaction with the guide. This is the way Galapagos Travel has to be done.”
Owen Jones

“Seeing Bartolome Island during the sunrise was magical. The snorkeling right after was also superb. What we particularly liked was the ability for our guide to alter the itinerary as need be because we were a small group.”
Lili Mehlab

“We were very lucky to have all our passengers to be incredibly entertaining, interesting, respectful, and enjoyable. Our Guide, Rafa, should be a university professor. His knowledge was quite impressive.”
Kent & Karin Lehman

About The Crew

“We would like to specifically mention Caroline, our cruise director, who has this rare talent to know what you might want before you even get a chance to ask for it, which kinds of makes you feel like royalty...”
Derk Stockmans

“The crew on the yacht was terrific and worked very hard to please everyone. I just thought I would let you know how much I appreciated the entire program that is offered.”
Salli Snyder

“Amazing staff, after 4 weeks of cycling in Chile, this was definitely the place to recharge. Thank you.”
