PAST CLIENTS ENCANTADA YACHT FEEDBACK
"The Encantada yacht is small - definately among the smallest of the other Galapagos cruise yachts we saw - but very cozy. The crew were helpful, provided good food/drinks, and attended to every need that we had." (Jean Lee, USA)
"Both of us had a wonderful time and the whole Galapagos experience was amazing! The chef made delicious meals that catered especially for my food allergies, our guide had lots of experience and was funny and entertaining too, and the cosiness of being on a small yacht helped us to develop many new friendships." (Pamela Retamal, Australia)
"Our recent trip to the Galapagos was in my opinion EPIC ... ENCHANTING ... MAGICAL. The Encantada boat was the perfect craft to explore the islands." (Nick Harding)
"Fantastic. It was a real pleasure to land in wild places with only a dozen people - this is the advantage of a smaller yacht at Galapagos. The crew were very attentive to us and respectful of the wildlife, the food was varied, fresh and tasty, and the itinerary kept us busy and engaged. Highly recommended!" (Kevin Kelly, USA)
"Great passengers, crew, boat, itinerary, nature, weather & destination. My 40th birthday could not have been more special and I will never forget being sung happy birthday in 7 different languages. Many thanks to all for making this such a special occasion!" (Simon Jones, UK)
"The Encantada is by far the prettiest boat in Galapagos - I would recommend the 8 day tour to anyone!" (Anne Plummer)
"The Encantada yacht was really great. The crew were friendly, and ran the yacht efficiently. Rooms were cleaned every morning whilst you were out on activities and the boat was given a good clean early every morning. The food was lovely, fresh and filling, and they were generous with their portions and with making snacks after our activities. Our guide was also great, very friendly and good humoured with very good knowledge of the islands, things always ran on time and without problem." (Marc Connell)
"We had a fabulous time on our trip! The boat was great, very clean and well maintained. The crew were brilliant and very friendly, they really made the trip so enjoyable. We would all definitely recommend it to others and enjoyed being on a smaller ship as it was more intimate and less crowded."(Amy Burkett)
"The boat was very nice and cosy (not super roomy but that is fine). I really enjoyed the fact that every day we had snorkeling. The food was varied and healthy. Overall I would rank this experience 9/10: unforgettable!" (Lorenzo Iseppi)
"The Encantada was exactly the right choice, had a very unique experience with great people on board. Enjoyed it very much!" (Mario Piechaczek)
