Quasar Expeditions Fleet (2)
M/Y Grace -- The 18-passenger, 291-ton Grace was built in 1928, and Quasar bought and refitted it in 2007. The yacht offers two Master Suites, two Twin Suites and five Premium Staterooms of up 200 square feet with private facilities. Public areas include a main salon equipped with a bar. Passengers can eat inside in the interior dining room or outside in the al fresco dining area. Passengers can relax in the front of the boat where the Jacuzzi and sun chairs are located. The sundeck has a bar with open-air seating. The line guarantees one naturalist guide for every nine guests on a full yacht. For family cruises, Grace's Kids Club organizes activities such as star-gazing and movie nights, and child-oriented guides provide tailored learning activities and keep kids' expedition journals. A wide range of board games and movies for children are available in the library. Children's menus are provided during family cruises.
About Quasar Expeditions
Seven-night sailings in the Galapagos promise contact with a unique environment including land and marine life visits and glimpses into the geology of the islands' many volcanoes. Activities such as snorkeling, kayaking, scuba diving, dinghy rides and walks and hikes enhance the interaction.
Naturalists onboard either of Quasar's yachts -- the M/V Evolution and the M/Y Grace-- are level 3 certified by Galapagos National Park and have at least 15 years of experience guiding on the islands. Their knowledge and expertise are enhanced by their individual interests -- from expert diving to birdwatching -- and their native connection to the region. A maximum of 16 passengers per naturalist is set for an intimate and enriching experience.
