We were on board the Encantada - my family of 5, together with 7 other travellers. We visited several islands over a 4 day period, the crew were fantastic, the naturalist good (English not always that good, but then neither was the English of any of the other guides I heard whilst out there) - but, between them all, they...

It was the second snorkeling tour (los tuneles) we booked in Galapagos and this one was definitely the highlight of our entire trip (the first tour with another company sucked, which I will review later, such contrast!). The guides were so professional and considerate. They took us first to the sea to observe the wide animals: sea turtles, blue footed... More

We did the 6-day cruise around Isabela on M/S Encantada. I wouldn't call it a 6-day cruise, though. It leaves in the evening of the first day and returns early in the morning of the first day, so just 4 days of program. For me that was enough! I saw every day so much I was finally happy to return... More

We did a 5d/4n cruise on the Encantata--the crew was great and the guide, Juan was exceptional with knowledge, energy and charm to keep a very mixed group entertained and informed. There are 12 clients on the boat and we chose it to avoid the crowds of larger boats when they "disgorge". Most of the inland touring places and the... More

My wife and I had booked a 6D / 5N island hopping tour with Scuba Galapagos. I booked the tour from Germany via internet and was always in contact with Viviana. – What should I say, it was one of the best customer contacts and caring I have ever experienced (especially given the fact that we do not speak Spanish)....

My wife and I went on a 6d/5n cruise around the Galapagos islands on the Encantada operated by Scuba Galapagos. The Encantada is a nice boat and holds 12 people in 6 cabins. The cabins are small, but fit a bunk bed, bathroom and storage space. The experience of sleeping in a small cabin was quite fun even if the... More

It was a great trip. We snorkeled and saw a lot of animals. Quiet awesome! Unfortunately, we had a guide with no knowledge about the Islands and he didn't care about the group. But the crew of Encantada was friendly and did a good job. The food was delicious.

Just loved it, the crew were awesome, the food was just wonderful and plentiful. Juan our guide was spectacular, lots of fun, great knowledge! He was perfect all around. The whole trip was one of the most memorable experiences ever. Highly recommend it! Worth the cost entirely.

I spent two weeks in Ecuador in June. I spent over a week touring the Galápagos Islands. I had 5 nights of that aboard the Encantada sailing between 4 or 5 of the islands. I have been to some amazing places but this ranks right at the top. The scenery , wildlife and all round experience was superb. The Encantada... More
