Hi guys, decided to go for a short Galapagos trip at the end of June 07 (4 or 5 days). We would like to go 1st class. Can anybody recommend a good boat or company to go with. Thanks for your help. Cheers LEjla

Hi Lejla,

we went with a small company called Galaeco, based in Quito. Google their name for the website, which is very informative and offers last minute deals on boats of all classes.

Galaeco seems to be run by a mother and her daughter, both of whom speak good English and couldn't have been more helpful.

We took a five-day Galapagos cruise on a boat called 'Floreana'. Whilst this isn't a first-class boat (the cabins are quite small, but comfortable enough for us) we still had an excellent time...

...hope you do too!


Andy and Sharon
