S/S Mary Anne

Galapagos Islands, Ecuador

S/S Mary Anne

S/S Mary Anne is lovely, traditional schooner, that accomodates a maximum of 16 passengers.

The Mary Anne is a three-masted barquentine and the only ship of this style sailing in the Galapagos. Letting down her sails as much as possible to travel by wind power, the Mary Anne does have a motor for those calmer days. This lovely schooner was originally built to carry 28 passengers, but the ship now takes a maximum of 16 guests, so communal areas never feel over-crowded.

Passengers head out on panga excursions to the islands, or can explore the seas around the Mary Anne with the aid of the boat’s kayaks and snorkelling gear.

The Mary Anne is not a luxurious ship, but what is lacks in terms of mod-cons and fancy décor, it makes up for in its unique sailing experience. Guests are welcome to help on deck (no experience necessary) as much as they want, but if you just want to relax that’s not a problem either.

The Mary Anne offers two itineraries:
8 days/7 nights – Eastern islands
8 days/7 nights – Western islands


The Mary Anne can accommodate a maximum of 16 passengers within 12 cabins – four doubles and eight single cabins. Cabins are not spacious but adequate for sleeping. They have small porthole windows, fans and bunk beds.


There are 10 members of the crew on board the S/S Mary Anne, including one naturalist guide.
