Mr. James Burnett (26/04/2018)

"I had a super week on the Beluga. The guide and the staff were really excellent and the wildlife outstanding. My first real go at snorkelling outside of the UK - it was superb."

Miss. Alma Evans (25/04/2018)

Super boat. Thanks for suggesting cabin 8 which was great and really suited us. All the crew were helpful and friendly

Mrs. Diane Bryant (20/02/2018)
"Brilliant and knowledgeable crew. We had cabin 6 which had large windows providing lovely views but a little cramped compared to the lower deck cabins but they only had small portholes so we preferred a view to extra space. Food was of a good standard and plentiful, 1 couple had stated they didn't eat red meat and unexpectedly were provided with alternative meat at those meals. The bar prices were reasonable and there was a good selection of wines and spirits"
Mr Andre Morrison (01/02/2018)
"Good staff and a great guide. However, we felt that the first day was too long, given that we had an early flight to Baltra followed by a full day of activities until 5pm. We felt that a half day with time to settle into the boat would have been a better start to the week."
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."
