Tip Top III MOTOR BOAT

What is this?

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!

The 4, 5, 11 and 15 day cruises are variations of the above Galapagos itineraries - starting on Fridays or Mondays. Please check with our sales staff before booking to be sure which itinerary will operate for your Galapagos cruise dates.

Important note about Galapagos itineraries: On day1 there is only time for an afternoon visit to be included; and on the final day only a brief morning visit. The reason for this is to connect with the Galapagos flight arrivals and departures at the airport. All Galapagos yachts follow this schedule, not only the Tip Top 3.

All prices are subject to change without prior notice. In the case of fuel price increases it may be necessary for the yacht operator to apply a fuel surcharge - should they do so then all passengers will have to pay the supplement before date of travel.

Cruise departure dates are available throughout the year; contact us for up to date availabilities and a price quote - discounts are often available!

Tip Top III 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 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)

* 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.
