|G ADVENTURES UPGRADES GALAPAGOS FLEET|
| New 16-passenger motor yachts to be added to G Adventures Galapagos fleet in the coming months|
G Adventures is upgrading its Galapagos 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, vice president of innovation, G Adventures, said the upgrades have been made to provide an improved customer experience, and to future-proof the fleet due to 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," Russill said. "Leading with service is one of our core values and these upgrades mean we can deliver on that promise and keep prices affordable.”
Each of the new vessels cater 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 a more deluxe experience.
G Adventures will continue to use its Javier G4 comfort-level vessel, a customer favourite, meaning the fleet will be made up of four vessels in 2013.
Current vessels will maintain operations until the end of the year when the G3, G5 and G8 will take over operations.
Itineraries for the three new vessels include:
A six-day Voyage Galapagos – South Islands standard-level trip onboard the Daphne G3 from Quito return for departures from September to November 2012 and January to April 2013.
A seven-day Voyage Galapagos – South Islands comfort-level trip onboard the San Jose 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 from Quito return for departures from January 2013 year-round.
