The Tip Top II Catamaran offers guests fantastic 3, 4, 7 or 14 night itineraries exploring the Galapagos Islands. All trips start from Baltra Island, and return domestic flights from either Quito or Guayaquil are included in the trip cost. The trips themselves offer guests everything they could hope to expect from a Galapagos cruise. Hike to the summit of Bartolome Island, snorkel amongst penguins and turtles, visit colonies of sea lions, enjoy panga rides around the rugged coast and visit the Charles Darwin Research Centre to learn all about this diverse area.
Aboard the Tip Top II Catamaran guests will find ample space to relax. The comfortable lounge has a flatscreen TV and AC, making it the perfect place to enjoy the cool air. For sun lovers the spacious sun deck has cushioned loungers and there is an outdoor lounge & bar which is a great place to take advantage of the sea breeze and enjoy a cool beer or glass of wine whilst discussing the days events. The Tip Top II Catamaran accommodates just 16 guests in 10 cabins. Each cabin has a private bathroom (toilet, shower, wash basin and vanity), locker and drawers, hair dryer, safety box and is air conditioned.
The 8 crew on board includes a bi-lingual naturalist guide certified by the Galapagos National Park and a dedicated chef who will create mouthwatering Ecuadorian and international cuisine. Join the Tip Top II Catamaran for your amazing Galapagos cruise. Call us or book online today.
