M/Y Passion itineraries have been created by Fiddi Angermeyer, a pioneer in Galapagos cruising. He has extensive experience and knowledge of the islands - having guided a large number of passengers and scientists from all around the world, he possesses an impressive understanding of the currents and winds, which he combines to give people the most enjoyable experience of the island possible.
M/Y Passion has two itineraries, east and west. The west goes through Fernandina and the backside Isabella. Here, there are many shield volcanoes to see, as well as an abundance of marine life in the crystal clear waters, and the Cromwell current that carries them.
The eastern itinerary goes through the islands of archipelago, where you’ll find impressive landscapes, and a variety of bird and amphibian species that are present only on these islands.
The western islands voyage navigates around the youngest Galapagos Islands. Floreana´s olivine beaches, splashed with the pink of flamingos, Isabela Island, with its volcanic craters and lush highlands, and Fernandina, the newest island and one of the world´s pristine natural environments.
