Athala Luxury Catamaran

Comments and recommendations received on this Galapagos cruise:

Elena,

I just wanted to drop you an email to let you know what a wonderful time we had on the Athala, as well as the cloud forest. They are going to be memories of a life time. You were recommended to us, and I was not disappointment.

Thank you again for everything. (The staff on the Athala was impeccable)

Sincerely,

Dear Elena,

We had a fantastic trip, we are home safely now. We loved the Athala , the boat and the trip to the Galapagos were spectacular and even better than I had hoped.

Thanks again,

Athala is a beautiful, 8-stateroom catamaran, and we were lucky enough to be assigned to one of the four balcony rooms. Everything about Athala was first-class, from the accommodations to the naturalist guide to the food - delicious! I had carefully searched for a very nice boat with 20 or less passengers as we were looking for something other than a large cruise ship, and Athala did not disappoint.

Dear Christian,

We would like to say a big Thank you for a superbly organized trip to the Gallapagos. From the moment that we touched down in Quito until the end of our Galapagos trip, everything was excellent.

We would like to make a special commendation to the Athala which we found wonderful. Nothing was too much trouble for the crew and our guide (Yvonne) was fantastic with a wide knowledge of the islands and an amazing enthusiasm for the environment there. We cannot recommend Athala enough and feel we were extremely fortunate to have experienced a week on such a beautiful boat. We would be very happy to be a reference for any future holiday makers and thank you again for your excellent professional organization.

Hi Elena,

The Athala II is a wonderful yacht. Clean, spacious and very friendly staff. Not to mention, the food was delicious and plentiful. Our Naturalist, Enrique was fun, energetic and very knowledgable. He was very passionate about his job and the well being of the islands. We saw so many animals and marine life. We will always remember.

Sincere Regards,

I found the Athala and what a find! A beautiful catarmaran with only 16 guests. Capitano and crew were superb in every way, helpful, nothing too much bother, and looked after us impeccably. Food was excellent throughout, chef cooking breakfast every day, always greeted from an excursion with freshly made drinks, often local fruit juice never before heard of, and home baked nibbles and always a choice at dinner. Champagne for crossing the equator on the bridge with the Captain.
We had a lovely cabin, huge bed, private balcony, small but great as you could have the door open all night if you wish and the bathroom was stocked with eco friendly toiletries.

Thank you, Ivonne. Happy New Year to you! We had a wonderful trip on the Athala, and a great tour of Quito. Our tour guide in Quito was really great. The Athala was fabulous and everyone was very nice. It was a trip to remember.

Dear Christian,

The boat and crew were very good and our guide, Ivonne, was wonderful -- knowledgeable and enthusiastic. The only criticisms we have (and these are minor) are that the visit to San Cristobal Island was too long and that instead of visiting Post Office Bay, we would have preferred seeing more natural sights.

Hi Elena,

We have just finished our Athala trip - it was fantastic. Thank you so much for all your help in making this all possible.

Thanks again.

There were 3 children on my cruise, which finished yesterday, ages 6-9. There did not seem to be any kid-friendly food, and it was mentioned that they are not used to having children although the staff were all very good with them. I suggest you make a request in advance for plainer food, I am sure they will oblige. We had plenty of fish, prawns and lobster onboard, there was normally a fish dish every day. Again, if you put in a request, the cruise manager will do her best to organise it for you.

Hi Christian,

WOW !!!!!WOW, WOW, What a trip!!!!!! Everything you all did was GREAT !!!!!!

Yoyi and Kike were Great and the boat past all expectations. The Crew and Captain Pedro were out of this world. We had a great party the last night with everyone. They taught me some new dance moves. The Galapagos were excellent and Kike Really made it special with all his vast knowledge.

On the plain back home we were recommending the Athala and soon her sister ship to everyone. I was righting down the web site for people. I told them how great it was working with you.

Thanks again to you and to the whole crew of the Athala! With out you and the wonderful ship this wouldn't have been so perfect.

Width much Love and Gratitude,

Dele recuerdos a Yoyi y a Kike de parte de "la pareja amorosa" (ellos ya saben....) Asi que repetiremos al menos Ecuador Gracias por todo

We just got back from one week on the Athala 2 and it was outstanding. It is a beautiful new boat with a great itinerary (go for the full week, we had others on the boat that went for either 3 or 4 nights and missed out on a lot). The itinerary was aggressive, but well worth it – I can’t imagine having missed out on any of the sites we took in. The boat was very spacious – it fit very comfortably the 16 passengers, 10 crew members and 1 naturalist guide.

I would recommend cabins on the main deck as they have private balconies – a real treat. We often sat out on the balcony early in the morning or late evenings to watch sea lions playing just a few feet away from us. The cabins are spacious with a lot more storage than we ever needed, the beds were comfortable, great Aveda bath products and there was always a lot of hot water. Excellent food (and lots of it) thanks to our fantastic chef Darwin – we were even greeted with fresh juice and snacks after our excursions!
