La Pinta Galapagos Review

Review of La Pinta Galapagos

La Pinta yacht is a year-round Galapagos-based expedition cruise ship. This luxury yacht exceeds all basic travel requirements to introduce well-off, pretence-free cruisers to sea turtles and sea lions. 

Shipboard facilities

Touches like Wi-Fi, a glass-bottom boat and in-cabin showers, are welcome inclusions. After a long day trekking under the equatorial sun or peeking under the Pacific, guests can chat in the top-ship hot tub or have fun before dinner in the lounge as they swap pictures and stories.

The luxurious yacht La Pinta was built in 1982 as Bahamas-based casino ship. In 2008, the vessel was rebuilt and fulfils her duty as a modern expedition ship. Some of the amenities include outdoor shower heads, public-use dryer, goodie basket of Dramamine, snorkel gear (wet suit, snorkel, mask, fin), sea kayaks, glass-bottom boat, briefing room with A-V equipment as well as a crane delivering a trio of pangas to sea (inflatable water taxis which shuttle passengers to uninhabited islets). 

The overall experience on La Pinta Galapagos cruise tours is almost military-like and highly structured. In an effort to maximize time spent on land, scheduling is precise. If guests participate in every activity, they have to expect 2 hours of downtime tops and to be charmed but a little bit exhausted by debarkation day. A good idea is to have something more casual post-cruise (a beach stay, for example), as a counterpoint to hyper-scheduled pace and to spend time in a place which starts to feel like a dream the moment of returning to civilization.
