I sailed on Yacht La Pinta in April 2012. I had always wanted to go to the Galapagos but the high single supplement made it impossible. By chance, an Australian travel agent had chartered the boat as part of a longer, more in depth trip around South America. When this trip hadn’t filled up, they advertised the Galapagos cruise at a discounted rate. I jumped at the opportunity and found myself in the Galapagos, on the trip of a lifetime.
Yacht La Pinta is small, holding around 48 passengers and is one of 3 vessels owned by Metropolitan Touring in Ecuador. We had approximately 40 people from Australia and New Zealand.
After a couple of little problems were sorted out at the beginning of the cruise, all drinks, WIFI and wetsuits were included.
