Wonderful Boat with Delicious Food & Great Excursions

We were upgraded to the master suite of the boat and couldn't have had a better experience all around. The cabin was large, clean and stylish. The excursions were well organized & suitable for all experience levels of hiking & swimming. The staff were all kind & available throughout the trip. We couldn't have had a better experience all around!

Truly an experience of a lifetime

Oh boy, where do I start?! Snorkeling was definitely out of this world. We saw tons of sea turtles, sea lions, marine iguanas, quite a few penguins, several sharks and a couple of stingrays. I'm sure luckier groups have seen hammerheads and whales, but we're quite happy with the variety of sea life. The most fun part of snorkeling is swimming with these wonderful majestic creatures! Our Naturalist Guide, Hanzel, is truly the other highlight of this trip. I couldn't imagine a guide with more experiences in life - Navy Seal, Master Diver, Paratrooper, Story-teller. His presentations each night about Galapagos is nothing short of amazing. A 60-something that's as fit and passionate about the Galapagos as a 30-something. Count your fortunes if you get Hanzel as your guide.

The Galapagos lived up to all our expectations.

Everything from hotel pick up to airport transfer at the end of to cruise was very well organised. Boat needs a little more maintenance for a relatively young vessel. Anchor and rubber transfer boat both failed in the 10 days we were on the boat.

An amazing experience - fantastic crew and yacht

Travelling west to fernandina and isabela and visiting volcanic landscapes that took us back in time; the lush endemic wild and sea life; James who was the best guide - so knowledgable and passionate about Galapagos and conservation; Captain Oswaldo and crew who were top notch - ever efficient, unobtrusive and ever safe
