Galaven Yacht Damaged and Out of Service
The Galapagos Port Captain reported yesterday that the 20 passenger, tourist superior Galaven yacht had hit some rocks at the Cerro Dragon (NW sector of Santa Cruz Island) and was taking on water. Passengers were on land while this happened. The crew was able to control the leak and took the ship to the Canal de Itabaca (which separates Baltra, the airport island, and Santa Cruz island). The passengers were later taken back to Puerto Ayora.
Based on this information, it would appear that the Galaven may be out of service of a while. If you planned to cruise on the Galaven in the next few weeks, CNH Tours recommends you get in touch with your agent as soon as possible.
