La Pinta

Galapagos Islands

A very comfortable way to cruise the islands! The rooms were spacious, comfortable and "refreshed" several times a day. The food was delicious at all mealtimes and lunch on deck was a real treat. The bar team were very attentive, ensuring that we had drinks and nibbles on return from our trips. We didn't want for anything whilst on the boat.

La Pinta has just been renovated, and it was a joy to be aboard. We spent four nights/five days exploring the northern islands of the Galapagos archipelago. The cabin was spacious with a large (non-opening) floor to ceiling window. The en suite bathroom, though compact, was modern. The whole expedition was run like a well-oiled machine, and yet still remained personal. There is a lot of getting on and off the ribs to visit the islands, so guests need to be reasonably fit and agile. The staff and guides cannot do enough for you. Although short, it was a very intense cruise with two or three activities a day (always with a rest time at some point). Everything has been thought of: snorkelling gear, life jackets every time you're on the rib, walking poles for trekking, even metallic water bottles to reduce plastic waste. Details of each day's activities are posted on screens. The lounge area is spacious. The upper deck has a lovely canopied area for meals al fresco. The food especially the buffet breakfast and lunches was a very high standard. There were often little snacks to be hand on return from a visit or snorkelling. The guides were enthusiastic and passionate about the Islands and their preservation. This experience has spoiled me for all future expeditions!!
