Danubio Azul Galapagos Cruise

Danubio Azul

Danubio Azul Yacht Description

The oddly named Danubio Azul (Blue Danube in Spanish) isn't a riverboat in Central Europe, but a small, 10-passenger economically priced Galapagos boat that is one of the few boats in the Galapagos permitted by the National Park to run both diving cruises and naturalist cruises. Small in size, but big on service, the Danubio Azul's diving itineraries of 8 days spend a full four days diving the far northern islands of Wolf and Darwin while its Naturalist Cruises of 4, 5 or 8 days in length focusing on the Galapagos' central islands. As one of the smallest vessels to sail the islands, the Danubio Azul may be a good option for an economical private charter for groups up to ten people.
