Angelito Yacht

Galapagos Islands Wildlife Cruises – Angelito

ANGELITO – the original boat was named in grateful memory of Angel, the grandfather of Galapagos born brothers Hugo and Leonardo Andrade, who helped his two grandsons to build their first fishing boat, with which they could earn a living and support their families.

As pioneers in the Galapagos, the brothers gave up fishing and converted their boat to carry visitors to the islands. Their extensive knowledge of the islands, gained over the years of working as fishermen, had made them expert captains and guides, extremely well able to explain the natural beauty of the Galapagos to tourists.

Thus they took an important step to support the conservation of the Galapagos, by moving from fishing to actively promoting the protection of their islands.

After more than a decade of working in tourism, the brothers were able to apply their extensive knowledge and experience in the design of the new Angelito I, ensuring that it was equipped with all the facilities needed to provide maximum security and comfort for tourists.

Built in the Galapagos, its solid wood construction has more than proved itself, as shown by its unblemished safety record.

New itineraries

Due to their remoteness, unique diversity and protected status it is often thought the best way to experience these enchated islands is on a multi-day wildlife cruise. (The alternative is to stay on one of the few inhabited islands such as Santa Cruz – staying at the Finch Bay Eco Hotel and join a variety of day excursions.

Starting from January 2012, the Parque Nacional Galapagos has modified its cruise itinerary regulations: ships are now limited to visiting the most popular sites only once in a 14-day period so many have changed from a one- to two-week circuit. These changes help to spread out the environmental impact at popular stops like Bartholomew’s Pinnacle Rock and North Seymour’s colony of blue-footed boobies.
