Highlights

The SS Mary Anne offers amazing small-ship Galapagos cruises. She is a beautiful 52m sailing ship with over 1000 m2 of canvas sails. This 3-masted schooner is one of the only ships in the Galapagos that can sail without engine support. When possible, navigating by sail means a peaceful journey with no engine noise, tempting whales and dolphins to swim alongside the ship.

Old ship navigates the Galápagos Islands

Way to see and explore the natural beauty and animals of Ecuador. A long lens camera is a must! The Mary Anne is a super old sailboat whose sails only go up twice in a week. The first and last days were a wash as the boat was not ready and the crew did not want to do an excursion on the day of departure (100% were on their cell phones calling and checking messages). Passengers were from UK, USA and Europe but it was a very old group. Based on the very rich price and dumbed down excursions, I cannot recommend.

Ship kept to itinerary though excursions were dumbed down for the out-of-shape seniors; if you love meat, the food is great — as a vegetarian, it was not good (think meat substitutes); friendly crew but not a single one spoke English!!

Unforgettable trip on a real sale boat

Itinerary exposed us to almost all animal and plant species that the Galapagos islands can offer.

Beautiful ship with lots of deck space and relative stability in rough seas. Friendly and knowledgeable guide. Fellow passengers

Great crew, fantastic destination, pretty decent ship

Seeing all the animals was great, Crew was very friendly and helpful, safety seemed important. Snorkeling gear good, shorty wetsuits were $25 for week and needed. October weather fair as expected, seas a bit rough. The arrival airport transfer arrangements were quite disapppointing, cobbled together on the spot after a long wait with no contact person available. There was supposed to be an excursion last day, but guide had a flight that required leaving boat at 7 AM. Food basic/bland but well prepared. Able to accommodate different diets. I had low expectations for the sailing portion and these were met. Before leaving, I noticed last minute deals for half of what I paid for trip.
