Top Notch Experience
I cannot say enough fantastic things about this cruise. The main reason I chose this was for the action-packed itinerary, so I was a bit surprised when I was also blown away by the boat, crew and meals. The itinerary was so fun. The snorkeling was probably my favorite, as we swam with hammerheads, reef sharks, rays, turtles, penguins, cormorants, iguanas and a lot more. I brought my own mask and snorkel, but used their fins and wetsuits which were great. The land excursions were really interesting with tons of wildlife that is so close they are sometimes on the trail with you. The hiking was not strenuous - just some uneven surfaces and the boat offered hiking poles to use if needed. We also did some scenic panga rides and kayaking/SUPing which were great for getting even closer to the animals. I loved the diversity of activities and how they offered seeing the same animals in different ways, like penguins standing on lava rock, swimming on top, and darting below the surface. The guides were awesome. I was a little concerned about English fluency, but those fears were immediately put to rest. The guides had a combined 60 years of knowledge and explained everything in scientific yet easy-to-understand terminology. As they accompany you on the excursions, they speak about the flora, fauna and geology in the environment around you. They explained any questions in depth, and would find interesting ways to illustrate an idea - like having us feel the weight different of pumice (volcanic ash) and cooled lava. The boat was great. There is a roof top deck that offers shade and sun, views of the milky way at night, and a chance to hang out with the other passengers and Frigate birds that soar along with the boat. The rooms were clean and comfortable, and were serviced twice a day. The dining area was also beautiful with comfortable booths where all passengers had the opportunity to mingle over a meal. It's a smaller boat, so you feel it if there are choppy seas. Some passengers had a patch they put behind their ear for sea sickness. For me, I just took a pill before bed and felt completely fine. There can also be some considerable noise (waves splashing, anchor lowering, engine droning), depending where you room is located, so bring ear plugs. My partner and I stayed in a room with 2 twin beds, which was comfortable and may have been a little more restful than hitting choppy seas *and* each other in a single bed. The meals were so delicious and nutritious with a variety of ethnic cuisine. I ate everything - salad, fresh fruit, cooked food - and did not experience any "traveler's" problems. I am also now a huge fan of plantains and the variety of ways they can be prepared! And finally, the crew were all amazing. They always had a smile, were helpful and accommodating. They worked their tails off for everyone on the boat.
