Since we started in 1998, as SAIL’N GALÁPAGOS, the first Yacht agency & Superyacht services, we believe that coming to the south pacific, and specially to the Galapagos Islands, is a unique experience, discovering a different place, appreciating and enjoying nature in its highest degree of biodiversity in this unique World Heritage.

Since I settled in the Galapagos, in 1985, I started building a personal and professional base in the region.  The goal has always been to put the conservation of Galapagos as a priority, serving in public or private sectors, we have always committed to this values with all our actions.

Until 1997, the visit of foreign yachts and sailboats to the Galapagos, was informal, spontaneous and wasn’t managed under a legal frame.  Most tourists arrived by air and used local tourism boats to visit Galapagos.

SAIL’N GALÁPAGOS broke those paradigms by starting a pathway to let foreign yachts and sailboats arrive and visit Galapagos through a legal framework.  We started a new option for the region with sailing visitors, which contributed directly to the local economy.

We, together with other activists, developed the first Law for Galapagos in 1998, where these kinds of visits were legally recognized.

Our beginning was not easy, but we were convinced that your visits to Galapagos was a good option for the islands.  Together with the authorities, we started building the regulations and processes to set a standard for the visits.  We were part of structuring the payment systems, monitoring, inspections, itinerary procedures, natural guides and standards, a whole developed system that allows your visit to take place smoothly, also allowing similar agencies to operate.  It has not been an easy path, we have overcome many challenges, but we are still the leaders.

We, Ricardo and Yvonne, represent the foreign yachts in Galapagos.  We are the starting point, the first agency founded in this unique World Heritage since 1998.

Our brand equals integrity, we are Galapagos, our commitment is quality and we guarantee this to our clients.  Our business relationship with you will be personalized and we will dedicate ourselves to serve you with the professionalism and security you deserve.  We are part of the islands, and our goal is to achieve your goal of a smooth experience.

We are committed to keep on making Galapagos a great destination for yachts and sailboats, with the beautiful nature of this archipelago and our best effort we will achieve the conservation of the islands.

Please, allow us to have the privilege of giving you the best experience we can by managing your visit in Galápagos.
