Beagle is a 32 metre steel-hulled motor schooner with classic lines and polished teak decks. She was built in London in 1971 and is named after HMS Beagle, the vessel in which Charles Darwin sailed to the Galapagos Islands. She is powered by twin engines to give an average cruising speed of 9 knots. There is a crew of 6 comprising captain, helmsman, steward, cook, engineer and naturalist guide.
There are 6 double cabins, with lower double and upper single berth, so ample room. There is also a smaller double cabin, which is offered for single use. All cabins are air-conditioned, have portholes and en suite bathrooms.
There is plenty of open and shaded space and seating on deck, plus a large table where al fresco meals are taken. The interior is well-furnished and includes a comfortable saloon which has a library of Galapagos literature and a selection of games. There is a bar offering a range of cold drinks, including beer, wine and spirits. Beagle carries snorkelling equipment and wet suits which are free for passengers to use.
The Beagle has been awarded the Smart Voyager certificate, which is granted to tourist operations after careful inspection of their adherence to sound conservation practices.

I understand the Beagle will soon be undergoing a re-fit / refurbishment so will be even better.
