Charter yacht aids Galapagos conservation efforts

ADVERTISEMENT

WildAid has teamed up with Angermeyer Cruises and Andando Tours in the creation of the Galapagos Conservation Fund and the relaunch of the largest charter yacht in the Galapagos as the M/Y ​WildAid’s Passion.

For every passenger booked on the yacht, $100 will be donated to the conservation fund to protect the Galapagos marine environment. Angermeyer Cruises also will donate all proceeds from a one-week charter each year, and 22.5 percent from all bookings made via wildaid@andandotours.com will go directly to WildAid’s programs in the Galapagos.

“We applaud Angermeyer Cruises and are delighted to partner with such a progressive operator who understands that investing in conservation equates to a win-win situation for both wildlife and tourism,” WildAid CEO Peter Knights said.

Rates for an eight-day Galapagos journey start at $5,980 per person based on double occupancy and include all meals on board, snorkel gear and programmed visits to the islands with certified naturalist guides. Full charters are also available with rates ranging from $77,800 to $97,800 for Diamond Charters.

“We believe that visitors to the Galapagos have both a privilege and a responsibility to help protect these marine ecosystems,” said Fiddi Angermeyer, CEO of Angermeyer Cruises.
