Galapagos Islands Cruises

Standard Gringo Galapagos Yachts
FOR REGULAR SAILORS

Standard Gringo class yachts are very popular with travellers who want to see the best of the Galapagos Islands without any unnecessary frills or great expense.
Standard Gringo Galapagos cruises are budget yachts that offer excellent value for money and usually have all of the basic on-board services such as air conditioning, hot water & private bathroom. The yachts and cabins are small but cosy, and overall service is of a reasonable level. Guides are most commonly of level II standard.

Itineraries vary greatly between different Standard Gringo yachts but are often every bit as good as those of the more expensive yacht classes; so the money that you save in Standard Class does not diminish your overall experience of the Galapagos Islands, only the comfort in which you travel.
