    About the ships

    M/Y Eric, Flamingo I, and Letty are small yachts with identical characteristics. A seasoned captain, 8 dedicated crewmembers, and 2 experienced English-speaking naturalist guides attend to the details of your Galapagos cruise. Each naturalist takes a group of no more than 10 passengers on all shore excursions and shares extensive insights into the Islands' diverse wildlife. Small wooden boats, locally called pangas, ferry passengers to shore for island visits. Outfitted in 1991, the fleet of three 20-passenger first class motor-yachts Eric, Flamingo I, and Letty are 83' long with 24' beams each and exclusively custom-designed for Galapagos excursions, with spacious accommodations for small groups.
    Polished teak wood interior features fully air-conditioned cabins, public spaces, a dining room, a well-stocked bar, a conference area (with television, vcr, stereo cassette/cd equipment), and a book and video library. Accommodations include ten cabins located on three decks, each with a large private bathroom, fresh hot-and-cold-water shower, either two twin lower beds or one double bed, a roomy closet, overhead storage, separate climate controls, intercom system, bottled water toiletries, and fresh towels. Snorkeling equipment, wet suits, sea kayaks, and beach towels are provided at no additional charge.
    Breakfast and lunch are casual buffets with fresh, creatively prepared produce. Unwind quickly in the evening with creamy soups, ceviches, grilled seafood, roasted potato salad, unique deserts, and other delicacies of both Ecuadorian and international cuisines.
