What an absolutely amazing experience!!!

I don't think I could ever adequately put into words how amazing this trip was... it was hands down the best trip my husband and I have ever taken!! Seeing the animals was obviously the main highlight, but our experience on the Coral I far exceeded my expectations! The staff/guides/crew were all outstanding and were always on top of even the smallest details. The itinerary (we did Itinerary C) was full of activities and things do to, but there was also the perfect amount of down time in between excursions. The food was top-notch and always changing, the guides were incredibly knowledgeable, and I loved that our group was so small (there were 19 of us) -- it all helped make this vacation truly unforgettable! I recommend the Coral I & II to anyone who wants to experience the Galapagos Islands in an intimate and personalized setting! And the entire experience was made even better by the amazing service provided by LiveAboard -- they were incredibly responsive and helpful throughout the entire process, from booking all the way to traveling!

A Beautiful Relaxing Adventure

Swimming with sea lions had to be one of the most amazing experiences of the entire trip. I also really enjoyed seeing the different types of birds and snorkeling in the deep areas.

An Amazing Experience-super company

From the moment we were greeted at the airport to the moment we left, the crew and naturalists were committed to making sure our Galapagos experience was excellent. The itinerary was varied, a strong blend between walking and snorkeling, allowing us to see a lot of animals and plants of the Galapagos. I highly recommend this company.

Loved the snorkeling and hikes. We do wish more snorkels were allowed. Staff did a great job to help celebrate a birthday within our group of 6. Food was plentiful and hearty.

Loved the itinerary, food and the hot tub!

The snorkelling got better and better each day! David (crew) was extremely attentive - my glass was never empty. I loved swimming with the sea lions, the walk on Espanola Island, witnessing sea turtles on the beach. Such amazing wildlife and knowledgeable guides. I loved getting to know my fellow travellers - I appreciated there was a mix of nationalities and ages - not all older Americans.

Great care taken to be eco-friendly, intimate experience with smaller numbers, hot tub!

Truly amazing

It was better than we expected. There were so many highlights. The wildlife of course was incredible and the reason we went but the cruise was very special. All of the staff were friendly and made us feel welcome. When my son lost his phone they went out of their way to find it. The food was incredible. A new surprise everyday and celebrating the fresh food that Ecuador has to offer. Special thanks to the chef. Our safety was always important. Attention was made to every detail so many thanks for a trip I will never forget

Fantastic Galapagos trip

Every day was fantastic - we chose this trip as there seemed to be more opportunities for snorkelling than on some other itineraries but the land based activities were equally fascinating. Being able to snorkel twice a day with sea lions, turtles, sharks etc was my personal highlight.

Great boat and crew - good size in terms of number of passengers. Excellent food. Well run (and excellent) itinerary.
