About Our Ship

One of the highlights of this trip is the ship itself and the ability to actually sail in the archipelago on a magnificent sailing yacht—no other photo tour offers this. A magnificent 105-foot twin screw steel-hulled brigantine with teak decks and beautifully designed interiors, The Beagle is a classic among sailing yachts in the Galápagos and is one of the most spacious with the friendliest staff.

This was my first photography workshop, so I was not sure what to expect. In all, it was an outstanding experience. The group was congenial, the leader outgoing and a good teacher, and we were fortunate to have a great nature guide as well.
