Reviewed 2 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

This was one of the best trips that we ever did as a family. Our group included me and my wife ( grandparents), two sons and two daughters and six of our grandchildren wiith ages varying from 4 to 16 years If age.
We all enjoyed imensely all aspects of the trip both on water and at land. Food was outstanding: fresh, tasty and well presented. Accomodations and Room services este always corteous and non intrusive.
The sailing team was very professional and commanded the ship with both knowledge and sensitivity to our needs and difficulties.
The guide proved to be very knowledgeable and a good communicator. He was also responsible for all the planning of our activities in Galápagos and managed for us being always at the best time at the right places.
Unforgetable experiência for our family.
I strongly recommend this Company, boat, crew and Guide.

“Smooth Seas Amazing Animals”
Reviewed 12 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We took the 8 day southern itinerary tour that started at the end of April and wrapped up on May 7th and had an amazing time. The crew was amazing - looking after us, creating incredible meals and making sure we got the most out of every excursion. Our guide was Gabriel and he was knowledgable, funny and wasn't afraid to hop in the water and show us where the sea life was. Captain Antonio also enjoyed the water and was more than happy to assist in our snorkeling adventures. We saw sharks, rays of all types, turtles, fish of numerous descriptions, penguins, sea lions and more. Raoul took care of us on board, laying out our meals, maintaining our cabin and serving us drinks. Chef Patricio managed to crank out three delicious meals a day, plus snacks from the tiny kitchen. You won't go hungry and will likely gain a few pounds, despite all the snorkeling and walking. We saw almost every animal there was to see, both on land and in the water. The cruise let us see so much with so little hassle. It's definitely the best way to get the most out of the islands and we highly recommend this company to give you the adventure of a lifetime.

Things to know: if you book last minute, you'll likely have to pay in cash at the office which won't leave money to tip the crew, especially if you max out your ATM withdrawals. (It would be nice if the office accepted last minute credit card payments.) Tipping isn't mandatory - our guide made that clear - but knowing how Ecuador works (workers generally get low wages), I'm certain the crew is reliant on their guests' generosity. It wasn't hard for us to do, as they work so hard and deserve it. The general suggestion (in the industry) is $10 - 15 a day (per person) for the guide and $15 - 20 for the crew. It sounds like a lot, but in the end, we were more than happy to show the crew our appreciation in cash.

Sea sickness and other health stuff: if you don't feel well on the high seas, you'll be well taken care of, one of our fellow passenger came down with a cold and our guide offered to take her to the doctor or hospital. The passenger, fortunately, felt well enough to continue the trip without the doctor's visit. This just confirmed to us that we were in good hands. There is also sea sickness pills readily available on board. Listen to your guide...take the pills before it's too late. I had no problems with sea sickness following Gabriel's advice.

“Mr.”
Reviewed 18 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

If you are going to see the Galapagos this is the way to see the islands. Boat, captain, crew and itenerary (south islands) were excellent. Very professional, attentive and helpful. Food was well prepared and plentiful. Cabins well appointed.

We enjoyed the two hikes / snorkels per day. The naturalist was full of knowledge about the islands, wildlife, botany and sealife.

There were so many highlights and positive experiences on the trip which want us to come back and take the north islands trip.

Cannot recommend highly enough.

“Great crew and wonderful tour”
Reviewed 15 February 2017 for a stay in November 2016

person found this review helpful

We took a cruise on the Nemo II in Nov-Dec 2016. The islands covered: Seymour Norte, Santa Cruz, Santiago, Isabela, Fernandina, Genovesa

The boat: Really clean and comfortable. First class I believe. The catamaran model reduced the tossing and turning (or so I was told)

The crew: Exceptional. Santiago the captain ensured we didn't get late for any of our activities. Victoronio, the cook, whipped up really great food from this cubby hole of a Kitchen. he ensured that my vegetarian wife had enough options. Israel, the steward, made sure our meals and our cabins were comfortable. The rest of the crew were wonderful as well.

The guide: Edwin, our naturalist guide, was comfortable in English and was really friendly and patient and answered all the questions and ensured we were kept informed of the cruise plans and the day's activities.

Overall: Highly recommend.

“Galapagos Trumps All”
Reviewed 11 February 2017 for a stay in January 2017

person found this review helpful

Despite a few disappointments, you can't look past the spectacular tour of the Galapagos Islands. Nemo II has an outstanding itinerary starting with beautiful North Seymour and ending with the gem of Genovesa. The beauty of the Islands, the tame animals and the memorable snorkeling gave us memories to last a lifetime. That is why I have to give 5 stars. Having said that, there are some things visitors need to be aware of. Be sure you know who else you are traveling with. You are going to be on the boat with 12 strangers- it helps if they speak the same language and are from a culture that is sociable. The cabins while comfortable are tight. Be prepared to work- they cram a lot into each day- for us that was a good thing. The food is good but not gourmet. The crew are competent but not overly friendly. But, forget all about that- just remember you are seeing something that can't be duplicated elsewhere on this planet.
