Most Inspirational Moment
Snorkeling close up with sea lions, turtles and rays. Turquoise seas and deserted beaches. Wildlife round every corner - iguanas, giant tortoises, albatross, boobies, frigate birds and pelicans. Walking on the most recent lava flows. Travelling with the sails up.
Thoughts on Group Leader
Billy' was a very personable guide. His knowledge was encyclopedic. He lives on the Islands, knows them very well, is very willing to share his information, answer questions, and seems to know how to avoid the few other tourist groups we came across. We could not fault him.
Advice for Potential Travellers
Travel light. You don't need much on the boat. It's warm/hot and T shirts/shorts are the order of the day. The coldest bit was the air conditioning on board! The sun is almost overhead so hat and long sleeves are a good idea.
Good firm soled walking shoes/boots are essential due to the rough nature of the lava terrain.
We loved the boat. It is beautifully maintained, polished wood everywhere inside, and scrubbed decks outside. Obviously well loved. We were very sorry to have to leave at the end of the holiday.
