The fleet of 3 Tip Top yachts, Tip Top II, III and IV,(see Tip Top II separately) have been owned by the same Ecuadorian family-run company for over 25 years. They are one of the first companies to offer Galapagos cruises to travelers and continue to provide excellent service with qualified guides and staff. Still owner-operated, they are committed to the preservation of the islands by practicing minimal impact and environmental sustainability practices. Both yachts are certified by the Rainforest Alliance for Sustainable Tourism. They are also very involved with supporting the local communities.
The Tip Tops were designed and constructed to offer the highest level of security and comfort to guests. They are steel-hulled motor yachts built to very high standards, specially designed to accommodate 16 guests comfortably in 10 cabins. Each yacht has a dining room, bar, and lounge, and are fully carpeted. A beautiful teak floored sun deck creates a delightful place for resting and relaxing on board.
Other amenities include full air-conditioning (Aqua Air Chill Water System); hot & cold freshwater pressure system; Royal flush electric toilets; TV; VCR; stereo music system. Snorkelling gear available for rent.
