Renowned for their excellent guides and advanced environmental technology, the 2 identical sister-ships, MV Letty and Eric are comfortable 83 foot motor cruisers which offer unique 6 and 7 night cruises through the Galapagos Islands.
Warmly furnished throughout with polished teak interiors, the vessels are spread across three decks with generous communal areas from the conference room and bar to the restaurant and outside observation deck.
There are 20 cosy, fully air-conditioned en-suite cabins which overlook the ocean. Standard cabins on the lower “iguana” deck feature portholes, 2 of which have an upper bunk for triple occupancy. The remaining cabins feature picture windows, those on the top “dolphin” deck are more spacious.
Daily excursions on foot and by panga explore the stunning islands, one expert naturalist guides to every 10 passengers which is among the best ratios of any boat. There are regular opportunities to swim, snorkel and kayak amongst penguins, sea-lions, rays and tropical fish, all equipment included.
Each evening, guests can enjoy regular lectures on the wildlife before retiring to the observation deck to stargaze or relax under some of the clearest skies in the world.
The Eric & Letty are an excellent mid-range option in the Galapagos. There are regular family departures carefully designed for children and adults alike though the choice of which of the boats you are actually on is only decided a few weeks before you travel.
This is just one of the boats that we recommend in this area. If your favourite is not featured just let your consultant know - we will be happy to book it for you!
