Great adventure in the Galapagos
We had an amazing trip - lots of snorkeling, hiking and learning about the beautiful Galápagos Islands. The Tip Top II was a great way to see the area. It was a very comfortable and well equipped boat, the crew was super kind and helpful, an our guide, Wilo was very knowledgeable about the area, as well as fun to listen to and spend time with. He prepared an incredible highlights reel video for us to have as a memory of our trip. Of course the strongest highlight was the number of amazing animals, how close we could come near to observe them, and the stark and colorful beauty of the landscapes. We would love to come back some day to see more. Thank you for an incredible experience.

Comfortable and friendly boat
For the price paid this was very good value for money The cabin and bathroom were big enough to be really comfortable throughout the trip and the small balcony was well worth the extra. Plenty of room on board to relax and being a cat it was very stable (compared to a mono) for walking around and sleeping. Swimming alongside sea lions, penguins, sharks, large turtles, rays and a wide range of other fish that were somewhat larger for their type than seen elsewhere were our main highlights of the trip - plus of course seeing BF Boobies and Frigate birds close up in flight and roosting with their chicks. On board guide was Edwardo, really nice chap with lots of knowledge, I would just have preferred him to edit down his content a little - but no doubt others might prefer even more detail so thats just a personal preference. Finally, the whole crew seemed very happy, helpful and committed in their jobs which made the whole cruise a really enjoyable experience

- The cat was big enough to be comfortable but small enough to be personal, the yachts crew were exceptionally efficient and friendly, the itinerary was full on with mostly two land excursions and two snorkelling trips per day, given the limitations of cooking on a small ship the food was exceptional
