Mary Anne Galapagos – The Iconic Sailing Ship

From $4500


The S/S Mary Anne: a genuine nautical experience

The S/S Mary Anne will no longer be offering voyages on the S/S Mary Anne until further notice.

The decision to temporarily suspend operations aboard the S/S Mary Anne is due to the vessel's needed maintenance in dry dock. This maintenance is necessary to ensure the ship's continued comfort and optimal performance. Once the extensive maintenance is completed, we will promptly notify you of Mary Anne's return to service.

More than a cruise, The Mary Anne Galapagos cruise offers a true nautical experience!

Explore the Galapagos with style and charm! Mary Anne is the only schooner in the Galapagos. Sail peacefully with full-blown winds with the charms of the past but with the comforts of today. Being an imposing 3-masted vessel, you will discover her sails are not only for show off. We hoist her sails on every itinerary and passengers can photograph this spectacle from the panga. She is the only ship in the Galapagos Archipelago that can navigate by wind power alone. Our crew will gladly welcome your help for hoisting.

  • The joy of sailing with the wind: The Mary Anne feels as spacious as the seas that open out before her. Navigating at full sail, you will not be troubled by the sound of engines, tempting dolphins and whales to swim alongside the ship.

  • Gourmet food: Dining is yet another thrill on board. Ecuadorian-inspired dishes including ultra-fresh seafood, prepared by the on-board chefs.

  • Comfort: Indoors in the dining room or library or outside on the main deck, you will find space to enjoy the sensations and freedoms of the seas on the only ship of its kind on the horizon.


  • Due to its steel hull, tall masts and deep draft, the Mary Anne is one of the most stable vessels in the islands.
  • Travel with the Galapagos cruise industry pioneers.
  • Elegant 3-masted barquentine that is the only of its kind in the islands.
  • Navigating with full sails, you will enjoy traveling without the sound of engines, often attracting dolphins and whales.
  • Whether traveling alone or in a group, the Mary Anne Galapagos cruise can accommodate everyone, with 6 single cabins available with no single supplement.

Launched in 1997, this elegant 216 foot (66 meter)-long barquentine is the most apt way to visit these islands, made famous by Charles Darwin, in comfort. The spacious main and sun decks, lounge and library are comfortable places to have a drink, read a book or simply relax in a sun chair while enjoying the view.

The Mary Anne is the perfect ship in Galapagos for those who love to travel by sail. She has 1000m2 of canvas sails which she majestically takes to the waves.
