PAST CLIENT CACHALOTE YACHT FEEDBACK

“An incredible cruise that exceeded all my expectations.” (Ben Cooper, USA)

"The Cachalote's on board service were excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed the Fernandina itinerary. A recommended cruise!" (Jo Haggle, UK)

"The Cachalote yacht has a lot of character, renovated, very clean with all facilities. The crew were very helpful and we had great meals every day. The Fernandina itinerary was awesome - we saw everything we expected to see and more including a blue whale, although the sea was rough at times. Absolutely recommended!" (Arina Cociuban)
