This ship feels more adventurous then other more luxurious 'floating hotel' boats. The group is small (between 8 - 12 people on the boat + 6 crew members). We had a great time: we have seen so much animals, food was good, crew was nice,...More

Best crew in the world and a lovely boattrip on Encantada! They were excellent with our children and they were more than passionate and all on the boat was perfect.

... on second sight. What a trip! To be frank, the first night I was not really happy with the choice of the vessel. The engine is so loud, it's hard to fall asleep. Bring earplugs! But apart from that the cruise was amazing! It's...More

It was the second snorkeling tour (los tuneles) we booked in Galapagos and this one was definitely the highlight of our entire trip (the first tour with another company sucked, which I will review later, such contrast!). The guides were so professional and considerate. They...More

We did the 6-day cruise around Isabela on M/S Encantada. I wouldn't call it a 6-day cruise, though. It leaves in the evening of the first day and returns early in the morning of the first day, so just 4 days of program. For me...More
