    • Relaxing Jacuzzi on the sun deck
    • Selection of board games for entertainment and socializing

On a small ship cruise aboard the Nemo III, you can be assured of top-class and personalized service. Delicious cuisine and snacks are provided daily, which you can enjoy in the covered outdoor dining area. Do note, however, that all drinks are payable separately. There are several outdoor seating areas, including those that are shaded and those that are in the sun. Head to the sun deck and find a relaxing Jacuzzi; unwind in the water as you sail through stunning scenery. Alternatively, retreat to the indoor lounge, with plenty of seating, air conditioning, and large windows. A selection of board games is available; why not challenge your fellow passengers to a friendly game? With just eight cabins, it’s easy to socialize and make new friends. Each cabin has air conditioning, a private bathroom, and adequate storage space. The compact cabins are cozy and comfortable. Most have either one double bed or two single beds, but there are also cabins with an extra single bunk.

Spend seven nights aboard the Nemo III, absorbing the marvels of the splendid Galapagos. Two routes are available, both of which start and finish at Baltra. Route A explores the islands north and west, while Route B sails east and south. Each exciting adventure lets you observe various fascinating and unusual creatures, such as birds, lizards, aquatic life, and the famous Galapagos tortoise. Enjoy picturesque scenery and activities like snorkeling, kayaking, swimming, and riding in a Panga boat. You can also satisfy your curiosity and try circumnavigation techniques. Islands visited on itinerary A include Genovesa, Santiago, Santa Cruz, Isabela, and Fernandina, whilst cruise B islands include Labos, Espanola, Floreana, Santa Cruz, and Santa Fe.

THE SNORKELING WAS SPECTACULAR, OUR GUIDE WAS FANTASTIC, LOVED THE BOAT, EXCELLENT FOOD, GREAT CREW! My only recommndation would be to warn potential passengers that the least expensive cabins require that you go up and down stairs to access rather than through an actual door. I thought it was a unique experience but some might not be comfortable with that.

An affordable, fun, memorable way to see the Galapagos Islands

We thoroughly enjoyed our 5 days on the Nemo III to visit the western parts of the archipelago, and made lots of new friends among our fellow 14 passengers. The crew was fabulous and catered to everyone's needs, especially my boyfriend's lactose intolerance, while serving wonderful food and experiences. My downside was that our cabin (8) was extremely noisy because it is adjacent to the engine room, and most other passengers said the same. For me it meant several sleepless or very restless nights, and that took away from my enjoyment of the daytimes. But this is a working boat, and a more budget option, so I still believe it is excellent value for the experience.

1) Snorkling 2) Hikes 3) Deversity of animal/reptile/bird/sea life The crew was helpful, attentive and fun to interact with during the cruise. The food was excellent! The quality and variety of our meals were unexpected but greatly appreciated. The catamaran had plenty of room for the guests to spread out and cabins compact but comfortable. I would highly recommend the Nemo III!!!

Really great itinerary and the staff were wonderful. Only issue was the rooms were very noisy at night and extremely hot (the air con didn't circulate the air effectively in the room).
