Mr. Gary Brown (01/01/2018)

"The beluga was excellent apart from two things: 1. The noise when motoring ( I've been around boats all my life and this is a noisy boat!). 2. The barman ripped us off by overcharging and claiming he didn't have any change when we paid our bar bill. I have been in contact with Wendy in Ecuador about this, and apparently it was a stand in barman who they are not going to use again. Apart from this the crew were fantastic, especially the chef who provided great food, and the panga drivers who really looked after us. The cabin (3) was a good size and comfortable."

"A wonderful experience. The boat is beginning to show its age but it didn't detract from our adventure. "
Mr. Robert Hicklin (14/11/2017)
"Super little boat, great crew, great guide. Spacious cabin (for a live aboard) too!"
RetiredBritishCouple (26/09/2017)
"Nicely equipped boat. Had good corner cabin (no. 6) with windows. Food excellent and staff very attentive. It would be helpful if bar prices were displayed rather than finding out when settling bill as no receipts issued. "
Dee Sullivan (05/05/2017)
"We'd deliberately booked cabin six 18 months before our cruise because it had two large picture windows and we were happy with our choice, even though the rooms with portholes were larger with more storage. However, an underbed drawer would have been very useful. Apart from that, the boat was kept clean, the food was very good and the staff were good - we had most to do with Enrico the barman/cabin boy, and he was excellent. Our guide Fabian was very knowledgeable. Having only 16 passengers were a crucial factor in our choice of ship and luckily we all got on. Being on a small boat we felt the ocean swell quite strongly at times but personally I like that."
