Food & Drinks

The food on our Galapágos Cruises is among the very best you will find in South America. Most of the on-board chefs are internationally trained and have prior experience working in the best hotels and restaurants in Ecuador and indeed around the world.

You can expect a first-class selection of food, including a good variety of fresh fruits and vegetables, locally sourced poultry and fish/seafood, rice and pasta dishes. Most boats will always include some typical Ecuadorian dishes on the menu during your cruise. If you have specific dietary requirements then these can usually be accommodated by the chef providing you have given advance notice. Please make sure you tell us about any allergies or dietary requirements you have at the time you book with us. If you leave it until you arrive at the dockside, then it may well be impossible to accommodate your needs.

Most boats serve a range of options at meal times in a relaxed buffet-style. At the first class and luxury end of the market, some boats have more formal dining where you will be served at your seat. However the atmosphere is always relaxed on board our cruises, and never stuffy or formal.

What an unforgettable trip! I traveled in the Fragata in late February with my cousin, we spend 8 days in it and I think we really got to know the Galapagos Islands thanks to good service good attitude of the crew and especially the vast knowledge of all animal species plants and the territory of our guide MIlton. My cousin and I arrived at the airport in Baltra from where our journey began in the islands when we were received very friendly to take the boat, I think the service was espctacular. Once we got on the boat the crew took us to our cabin, 9, which is on the top floor, and were surprised. It was really nice , clean, the bed was comfortable, and the bathroom was perfectly clean as for the boat in general, was in very good shape, the upper deck was very nice, which is half covered by a sun awning, perfect to rest between activities or get a tan. the food on the boat was for me a good sorprise as taste variety and quantity was always satisfying for us, the snorkeling experince that the Fragata yath offers is a unique experience and also the hikes were really nice, I think i achieve to see all the wildlife I had in mind when traveling to Galapagos.

Great experience on the Fragata Just returned from a 4 day/5 night stay on the Fragata. Alex was our guide. Our family of four had a great experience - exposure to a great set of fellow travelers from all over the world; ample opportunities to hike, snorkle, and swim; comfortable (albeit tight) quarters. We lucked out with the weather - only had rain on the last day (which didn't interfere with any planned activities). We found the crew to be quite friendly and helpful; the food was not gourmet but there was plenty for all 16 of us and always some vegetable and fruit offerings. Our only difficulty was seasickness but how can you avoid that when traveling in an intimate ship on the open seas? Feedback from:

No problems on our side, we really enjoyed the cruise! I took a cruise on the Fragata yacht in the middle of Feb 2014, and had a wonderful time. It seems that the maintenance on the ship fixed problems (at least when we were on the yacht) with the A/C (many people on TripAdvisor mentioned problems here!) No one complained about termites or fleas, though plumbing was a little problematic - but solved with a toilet plunger by a cheerful crew. Food was excellent (always lots of vegetables), fresh fruit juices during some meals, soups before lunch... all delicious. We had a few healthy young men on the ship so the quantities of food wasn't enough, but at least it was good. We had a great guide, great crew (always super cheerful and helpful). Wonderful time, and I would recommend the yacht based on our experience.
