The Adriana is a 42-ft catamaran offering day trips to a variety of sites within an hour or two sailing of Santa Cruz. With a crew of 4 and maximum capacity of just 16 passengers, you are guaranteed great personal service and a more exclusive experience of the wildlife. During our Galapagos trip, we were fortunate enough to enjoy 3 different cruises on Adriana with friendly and knowledgeable owner and registered tour guide, Fausto Rodriguez.
It was a dream trip! My only complaint was it went by too quickly! I don’t know which part was my favorite -swimming with the sea lions, visiting the organic rum still, shopping in Puerto Ayora, or exploring Montañita! It will be a trip I look back on fondly for many years to come! Thank you for sharing all of your knowledge and making our trip so stress-free! You are always welcome in Virginia.
I work with Fausto and Galapagos Best specifically because they always go far beyond the typical Galapagos experience to infuse their trips with an intellectual and experiential richness that I have not experienced elsewhere
Helen and I have enjoyed thinking back to our fabulous trip around Ecuador. We definitely have a week in Montañita planned for our next trip to South America (wish we could come back this week!)… Thanks again for your wonderful tour guiding skills. I’m thinking about Patagonia for 2016 -maybe March?
Fausto, your enthusiasm and breadth of knowledge of these amazing Islands made the trip such an immensely enjoyable experience. Thank you so much! Good Wishes on your future endeavors
Melissa and I would like to thank you very much for making this Galapagos trip a very interesting experience. We thoroughly enjoyed your enthusiastic descriptions and explanations of island wildlife, plants, geology, and recent history. You have made our experience much more meaningful, and we will always look back on our voyage lasting memories.
Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with our team if you have any questions about tours, cruises or anything Galapagos and Ecuador related. We are happy to help!
