This Galapagos yacht has taken the trouble to adopt a program of environmental and social sustainability that is certified by the Smart Voyager initiative which was set up by Conservacion & Desarrollo with Rainforest Alliance. The yacht's staff have gone the extra mile to implement these strict standards in order to conserve the environment and wildlife of the Galapagos Islands, and also benefit the islands communities.

Mrs. Georgina Hay

"We loved Letty. We took the last available cabin (10) on the bottom deck (Iguana). I was worried this might be small and noisy but it actually turned out to be much more spacious than the cabins on the top deck. We had bunks and a single bed which meant we could use the top bunk for storage. it wasn't too noisy but again I'd recommend earplugs. All the staff and the two naturalists (Freddie & Pepe who were very knowledgeable and obviously loved their roles) were delightful and the food plentiful and delicious. The organised activities i.e. visiting islands, snorkelling, kayaking, which were optional, were just the right mix and there was plenty of time for r & r after lunch. We were always split into two groups (random) so never more than 10 with each naturalist. We understand both Eric and Letty are going to be replaced either at the end of this year or next. A word of warning - no credit card facilities for paying the bar bill.Reply from Tribes: There are currently no plans to replace the Letty. The vessel does have credit card facilities however internet services in the Galapagos are unreliable. It was unfortunate that the internet was inoperative at the time it was needed."

Trevor Wood
"As I am sure you will guess this was absolutely superb! The boat (flamingo) was just the right size. Food, crew and guides were all very good. Wildlife exceptional."
Caroline Bird
"We were upgraded to 2 cabins on Dolphin deck of Eric which meant we had great views and fresh air. There were only 14 passengers which gave us very small groups with our 2 guides Ivan and Karina. These guides were outstanding, full of enthusiasm, very knowledgeable and contributed immensely to a wonderfully fun atmosphere. The chefs produced delicious food and we were greeted with a different snack by Hugo after every activity when we came back on board. The Captain showed us the Bridge after dinner as we crossed the Equator and we saw the GPS at 0,00.000. The cabins were so well looked after with plenty of towels made into different animal shapes each day."
Wendy Hartland
"Food and staff on yacht were excellent. We were able to borrow snorkelling gear rather than have to hire it. We did have a very noisy cabin near to engine room and kitchen which made it difficult to sleep when sailing. We did think the level of tip they suggested was excessive due to the average local wage."
Marianne Coleman
"It was great and fit for purpose. The cabins are necessarily small but comfortable. The sun deck could do with more furniture. I had not realised that I had booked the 'worst' cabins (Iguana Deck) with virtually not view out and bunks rather than beds."
