G Adventures upgrades Galapagos fleet

G Adventures is upgrading its fleet for 2013 with the acquisition of three 16-passenger motor yachts – Daphne G3, San Jose G5 and Queen of Galapagos G8. The company will add additional vessels in the coming months as it makes room for further growth. Jeff Russill, VP of Innovation, G Adventures, says the upgrades have been made to provide an improved customer experience and to future-proof the fleet ahead of further customer demand and new regulations. “Our new vessels have larger and more comfortable public spaces and will focus heavily on the customer experience, offering the best wildlife viewing and onboard service,”says Russill. “Additionally there have been, and will continue to be, changes made to Galapagos regulations, so we’re also ensuring the future viability of our fleet.”Each of the new vessels caters to a slightly different market: the G3 is the most affordable standard-level option, the G5 is a comfort-level vessel and the G8 provides an even more deluxe experience. G Adventures will continue to use its Javier G4 comfort-level vessel, meaning the fleet will be made up of four vessels in 2013. Itineraries for the three new vessels include: A six-day Voyage Galapagos – South Islands standard-level trip onboard the Daphne G3 is priced from $2,199 p.p. from Quito return for departures from September to November and January to April 2013; A seven-day Voyage Galapagos – South Islands comfort-level trip onboard the San Jose G5 is priced from $3,099 p.p. from Quito return for departures from January 2013 year-round; A 10-day Deluxe Galapagos – Northern Islands deluxe-level trip onboard the Queen of Galapagos G8 is priced from $4,799 p.p. from Quito return for departures from January 2013 year-round.
