This luxury 141-foot yacht, built in the United States in 2005, has been spotlessly maintained with painstaking attention to detail. Indeed, the Integrity has earned the reputation as one of the finest ships sailing the Galapagos Islands. The Integrity Motor Vessel is customized to carry 16 adventurers in comfort, safety and style – something it has been doing in the waters of the Galapagos Islands since April, 2005.
Your stay aboard the Integrity cruising vessel will be one of sheer delight. The decor is tasteful and simple, featuring hardwood that its owner hand harvested, milled and cured for this special yacht. Each stateroom is a double accommodation with comfortable seating, lots of storage, and large picture windows (no tiny portholes!).
Cabin temperatures are individually controlled, and you’ll have mini-refrigerator stocked with water and snacks in your room. Bathroom facilities are en suite with a full-sized shower, lavatory, toilet and storage cabinet. The cozy lounge/salon is the perfect place for viewing your day’s Galapagos Islands photos on a wide-screen in the salon’s media center, as well as for reading or listening to the daily natural history briefing from the on-board naturalist.
In the large, well-equipped galley, the chef and his cooking team strive to satisfy. Menus are varied, carefully executed and very healthy. Breakfast is buffet style with cereals, juices, fresh fruit, toast, muffins, hot items and eggs cooked to order. Fresh brewed coffee, a selection of teas, milk and cocoa are also served. Lunch and dinner are served in several, elegantly plated courses and often start with a soup, followed by safe-to-eat-salads and a main course of fish, chicken, beef or seafood. And there’s always dessert, coffee and tea. Special diets are readily accommodated; and there are plenty of kid-friendly dishes.
Its state-of-the-art stability and anti-vibration systems guarantee “smooth sailing” all the way. The interior design of the Integrity motor vessel is impeccable, while the social areas spacious and services are some of the best to be found. Taking a cruise on this luxurious 16-passenger Galapagos Islands cruiser is a bit like staying in a fabulous boutique hotel, but with ever-changing spectacular scenery and mesmerizing animals appearing just off your deck.
The most famous, and diverse, collection of wildlife on the planet. This delicate ecosystem has very strictly controlled visitation programmes, but once you arrive, it’s like a natural wonderland. Turtles, sharks, manta rays, sea lions…there is nothing like this collection of islands anywhere else.
