Just came back from an 8-day Itinerary C trip to the eastern Islands. Had the time of my life and would definitely recommend the Golondrina. Not a pleasure cruise, though. The boat is small, small cabins, small dining room. This means the waves are definitely...More

We had a great time on the Golondrina. The boat was much smaller than others but this is what we wanted. We had lots of snorkeling opportunities the only problem was there was not enough masks for the 16 on board so we had to...More

We booked the Golondrina I for the 7N/8D trip, itinerary "D", with Columbus Travel. Price 4.900 USD (incl. airfares) for two persons. The Galapagos Islands were the paradise we hoped them to be. The crew and the nature guide caused us a brillant trip. All...More

First of all, Golondrina is not spacious, it's probably the smallest boat in all the Galapagos. Cabins are small, 2 bunk beds per cabin. Not much sheltered space on the deck (Galapagos island straddle the equator and the sun in March is shining straight down)...More
