Tip Top III MOTOR BOAT

The Tip Top III yacht offers the same reliable service and experience as its sister the ship the Tip Top IV – a good, solid Galapagos cruise choice. The Tip Top III runs an interesting alternating Galapagos itinerary - one week to the north/west islands, one week covering the south and central area. These itineraries can also be combined into a comprehensive 15 day Galapagos cruise!

PAST CLIENT TIP TOP III FEEDBACK

“I thoroughly enjoyed my Galapagos tour aboard the Tip Top III – it is a very smoothly run operation that I cannot fault in any way - I would do it again in a heart-beat!” (Kyle Gibbs, Australia)
