Fleeing Nazi Germany in 1935, the Angermeyer family went in search of Robinson Crusoe-like isolation and found it in spades in the Galápagos. They worked first as fishermen and boat builders and later as guides chartering ships for scientists and tourists.

Today, their descendant, Fiddi Angermeyer, oversees a fleet of yachts that can be chartered for trips around the archipelago and is the driving force behind the Galápagos Conservation Fund, which he set up with Andando Tours and WildAid, a California-based global NGO that works to curtail illegal fishing, wildlife trafficking and the introduction of invasive species. The jewel in the Angermeyer-Andando fleet’s crown is WildAid’s Passion, built as a private yacht and now refitted for 12 guests with four staterooms and two suites.
