Did a 5 day/4 night cruise on board of Queen Beatriz catamaran in July 2016. Great boat, very comfotable, perfect team, very good food on board. The capacity of the boat is 16 passengers but we were only 7 which made it even better. Snorkeling equipment and wetsuits were included in the price. Every day was full of unique experiences...

It is now just over a year since we joined a fabulous trip around Ecuador and a highlight was the four nights/five days we spent on M/V Galapagos Legend. We were a party of 22 and disappointed when we learned that we would be on a larger ship than planned. In fact it was a blessing as we met other... More

The crew were excellent, always quick to assist. They all knew their roles and kept things moving to a packed schedule. The chef was amazing with the variety and quality produced in what I imagine would be challenging cooking conditions. I particularly appreciated the way that every time you arrived back on board from a land excursion or swim there... More

We booked our Galapagos trip thru OARS on the Reina Silvia - every detail was taken care of and we had a great trip with a small, compatible group. Our guide, Alejandro Villa, is one of the more experienced, so we learned a lot. Our ship was excellent, clean & safe with an experienced, helpful crew. The food was excellent... More

We travelled on the M.C Athala 11 around the Galapagos Islands for 7 nights (Genovesa Island route). The boat was spacious and very comfortable. The crew of 10, naturalist, accommodation, food and equipment great. The Islands are amazing, to see the animals and birds so close was a real privilege. All of the Islands are different, and Gustavo our naturalist... More

We boarded the Isabela II for our trip to the Galapagos Islands on Dec. 8th and loved every minute of it. As far as the ship, it is very nice. It's not a luxury cruise and there is no entertainment at night. The rooms do not lock when you leave but we had no problems with anything missing. Yes there... More

This brings school memories about Darwin's theory to life. It's amazing to see giant tortoises and iguanas which have been threatened with extinction now thriving and being reintroduced to the islands. The Galapagos Islands generally are the most incredible geography and natural history real life experience

We had the very best trip of our lifetime aboard the Isabela II visiting the islands. The animals are not afraid, and so beautiful in their natural environment. The snorkeling with the sea animals is spectacular. We were with sea lions, fur seals, cormorants, pelicans, penguins, sea turtles, marine iguanas, sharks, spotted eagle rays, stingrays, all kinds of fish, sea... More
