About the Mary Anne Mary Anne is a steel-hulled 3-masted barkentine, built in 1997 specifically to voyage in the Galapagos Islands. She was designed within established conservation parameters to prevent environmental damage, and is equipped with modern navigation and safety equipment. At the same time she is a traditional sailing vessel, spreading over 3,000 square feet of sail, on masts towering over 100 feet above the deck. Mary Anne offers comfortable accommodations and cozy public spaces, including ample deck space and great nooks for private time when you just want to be with yourself for awhile. All cabins are air conditioned and have private bathrooms. Public areas include the dining room, a wood-paneled lounge with bar, a library with TV, and open air dining on Sun Deck. There are kayaks available for passenger use, and rigid inflatable launches to ferry passengers ashore.
Personalized service is led by a professional captain, a discreet and well-trained crew and a licensed, English-speaking Naturalist Guide, to make you feel safe and truly cared for at every step of your voyage. For over 40 years, the Angermeyer family have offered guests the opportunity to discover and learn about the natural wonders, unique wildlife and incredible beauty of Darwin's "Encantadas", the enchanted islands.
The Galapagos Archipelago is 600 nautical miles away from the Ecuadorian coast. The islands are some six million years old, born from undersea volcanic activity. The island archipelago is made up of 13 major islands, 6 smaller ones and many islets, almost all of which are part of the Galapagos National Park. The surrounding waters are part of the Galapagos Marine Reserve, the second largest such reserve in the world. The geographic and climatic isolation of the islands has created a list of endemic and native species that has no close match anywhere else in the world.
