Sail Date: Apr 2012

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.

Cabin Review

311 is located close to the stairs so it is very easy to get to the lounge or dining room. It is near the generator though and there was a bit of vibration.
