Many travelers have put their hopes
of visiting the Island and seeing its fauna to a pause given the current worldwide
pandemic of novel coronavirus, COVID-19. Businesses all around the globe
have felt the impact of the illness, as it has produced the installment of
quarantines in major cities and travel bans that imply an impossibility for
flight. Our company has also chipped in on the quarantine efforts by complying
with regulations proposed by the government on March 15th.
We expect to resume normal operations
come June and will be attending to customers who wish to reschedule their trips
with us. We’ll make sure everything continues to run smoothly for them meanwhile
we keep contributing to the well-being of our company’s staff and
collaborators. And while you wait, don’t forget to #StayHomeFedererfan1,
wash your hands frequently and practice physical distancing!
The Fragata Yacht crew continues to prepare for new expeditions
Our teams have continued to work in
preparing new excursions into the Island, to show foreigners the blessings it
offers for people to discover. There are still lots of activities and places
left to try, so our crew members, which we still support despite the financial
turmoil the coronavirus has caused, keep on imagining new ways to
entertain those who choose us as their guides through Galapagos.
It becomes a responsibility to ensure
the quality of our expeditions isn’t jeopardized by the current problematic,
and it’s true that it might be harder to do our jobs during these difficult
times, but either way, we’re convinced that we must ensure we bring our A-game

enterprise, our product is the experience we are able to offer travelers, no
matter where they come from, and it takes guts and mindful visualization to
create those experiences for others to enjoy.
What Fragata means to local communities in Galapagos
Not only do we support our staff and
crew members, but also take humility in the positive effect tourism has over
the island and its inhabitants. Local commerce in Galapagos revels in the
exciting boosts it receives every time foreigners come to the island to enjoy
their vacations. That’s why it is so important for us to deliver the greatest
quality in experience and comfort in our ship. Every time we’re able to satisfy
our customers to their fullest, we’re ensuring they book at least one more trip
and do a back-to-back visit!
Through these hard times, we are wary
of how these extraordinary challenges affect local communities’ livelihood and
are making plans to ensure they are well compensated after the travel bans are
We’re grateful for the connections we
share with the people of Galapagos and are proud to operate in such an
amazing place, which is why we believe no one should have to miss on the
wonders the island has on display! We appreciate and cherish our synergy with
the island and its people.
