  • The Mary Anne was the perfect way to tour the Galapagos Islands. We were always the envy of other travelers. The captain and crew were great!
    Mark Nozaki
  • Our guide in the Galapagos on the Mary Anne was Carolina Larrea Angermeyer and she was terrific... She demonstrated genuine love for the Galapagos. She was also very helpful in meeting the needs of the passengers. We loved our cruise in the Galapagos and feel that a large part of the experience was due to Carolina.
