A truly magical place

Seeing the Southern Cross in the same sky as the Big Dipper; seeing sharks in the wild--white tipped reef sharks while snorkeling and Galapagos sharks swimming around the boat; seeing the tortoises, iguanas, and many species of birds; swimming with sea lions; meeting and interacting with our wonderful guide and the crew. The Galapagos islands proved to be the special place I thought they would be. Thank you, Bonita and crew!

Unforgettable, very well organised cruise

Snorkelling at Devil’s Crown. Giant tortoises at Santa Cruz highlands. We must say that the noise on the boat was very disturbing as we travelled mainly during the night. The generator was running even when we were stationary. We advise future passengers to take ear plugs with them!!!!

Recommended for
The visits to nature: hiking, snorkelling. Well organised transfers. Good food.

This was everything that I expected and wanted for my trip

There are too many to mention and it is impossible to say any one part of the trip was better than another.
