We did the 6 day Western itinerary on the Santa Cruz II. I was searching for a small ship with a few people, but because of the dates this was the best option. With the largest ship in the Galapagos, you have also the largest possibilities. They offer snorkeling, kayakking and glass botom boat. So if you want to see the underwaterworld, but not in the mood for snorkeling, you have other options. During the excursions you are with max of 14 people. The boat is very luxury, clean and the food is great.

Cruise Date: 19 July 2017 for 6 days.
