We took this all day tour and were so disappointed in the staff. First off, you don’t get breakfast. You are served a banana, yogurt with granola and bread and butter. Then you get to smell and watch the crew cook themselves eggs. Our guide...More

This was a terrific way to see the Galapagos. The yacht was well-equipped and maintained. Passenger areas, both indoors and outdoors, were spacious and comfortable. The crew was very friendly and attentive. You get to know them very well even on short trips and they...More

The Santa Fe yacht was spacious and the crew was welcoming and professional. We took a day trip to Santa Fe and enjoyed our guide and our day on the Santa Fe. Lunch was delicious and generous!

Wonderful experience boating through some of the Galapagos islands. Captain and crew were friendly, helpful and professional. The lunch prepared on board was delicious. The boat was very comfortable. I would use them again.

We took two trips--Bartolome and Santa Fe--both were outstanding. A few in our group are vegan, and on the first trip they made an effort to accommodate us for breakfast and lunch. By the day of our second trip they truly had it figured out...More

I took two tours on the Santa Fe Yacht: Bartolome and North Seymour. One reason why I chose it was because I could book and pay online instead of bringing a huge wad of cash to the islands. The yacht’s website has a detailed schedule...More

Joined the Santa Fe crew to South plazas in Galapagos in Sep 2017. Our naturalist Diego was great, he gave very detail information on the land and wild life and had been very attentive throughout the day. The crew was great, very caring, friendly and...More

The guides and service were outstanding. We took several other tour companies and Santa Fe was by far the best. The boat is larger so there is plenty of room to lounge inside and outside. The size of the boat also made for smoother sailing....More
