Smart Voyager Certification

As one of Ecuador's leading conservation organizations, Conservacion y Desarrollo developed the Smart Voyager sustainable tourism certification program, which awards its seal of approval to tour boat operators and hotels in Ecuador who meet a set of strict conservation standards for protecting the environment, wildlife and the well-being of workers and local communities.

The Eric & Letty were custom-designed exclusively for cruising the Galapagos Islands. They offer deluxe accommodation for your Galapagos experience.

Accommodations aboard the Eric & Letty include ten double outside cabins located on three decks, each with large private bathroom and fresh, hot and cold-water shower. Cabins are furnished with two twin lower beds or one double bed, roomy closet, drawers and overhead storage, plus separate climate controls and intercom system.

The sister yachts feature ample public areas; dining room, well-stocked bar, comfortable conference area, with television, VCR and air conditioning throughout. Large picture windows surround the upper two decks for panoramic viewing. Sun deck lounge chairs and observation areas invite you to catch the ocean breezes.

Three daily meals feature both international and Ecuadorian specialties and snacks are served following shore excursions. Our attentive 10-member crew including two experienced multilingual guides will make it a trip to remember.

Highly sophisticated navigational and mechanical equipment meet the highest safety standards found in the Galapagos. The yachts are self-contained and ecologically sound, equipped for noise-reduction and fuel-efficiency. False keels provide maximum stability for comfortable cruising.

Any passenger who would like to reserve a wet suit in their size prior to the cruise may do so at a charge of $25 for 7 nights. The fee will be charged to the account on board and paid at the end of the cruise. Reserved wet suits will be removed from the inventory and set aside for exclusive use during the cruise. Passengers are still entitled to use the remaining wet suits on board at no additional charge. However, they are available on a first come first serve basis and there is no guarantee there will be one available in their size unless they reserve in advance. Wet suits are most popular from June to November when water temperatures are between 65 and 72 degrees F.

Snorkeling equipment: masks, fins and snorkels in average sizes are available on board free of charge for use during the cruise. There is no guarantee there will be all equipment available in your size and therefore passengers may bring their own equipment.

There are two kayaks per yacht and are available at designated sites during the cruise on a first come first serve basis at no additional charge. The clear bottom tandem model is half canoe and half sit-on-top kayak with a modular transparent hull. The crystal clear hull of the Caribe provides a window to the underwater world.
