Golondrina Deck plan

Important Note: We are more than happy to request the cabin of your choice at time of booking - just let us know. But please be aware that but the final decision on cabin allocation is always in the hands of the yacht operator so Happy Gringo cannot be held responsible if the operator decides to allocate you to an alternative cabin.

PAST CLIENTS GOLONDRINA YACHT FEEDBACK

"Great cruise - definately worth doing the 8days as I saw so much more! It goes without saying that the Galapagos Islands themselves were totally worth it!" (Evelyn, Canada)

"Thoroughly enjoyable tour and excellent value too."
(Ralf, Switzerland)

"The yacht, rooms, food and staff were all great! I would recommend against doing 5day itinerary "H" though because the first night in the hotel takes time away from the tour and is a raw deal."
(Carrie, USA)

"Our 8day Galapagos cruise on the Golondrina was fantastic. The yacht was lovely with good facilities and with 14 people aboard it was the perfect size group to get to know our fellow passengers." (Emma Fawcett)

* Prices may increase if Galapagos yacht operators put prices up for certain popular dates (especially July / August)
or other Galapagos agencies sell their charter spaces to us at higher prices.
