    Dianne Burkett
  • Our days on the Ocean Spray cruising the Galápagos were beyond any expectations I had. All crew members were warm and friendly. The accommodations, meals and activities were excellent. Our guide on the islands and while snorkeling, Morris Garcia, was just brilliant!
    Sharon Luchow
  • Our catamaran for the Galapagos tour was the Ocean Spray. It was excellent in every way! A very well-run operation!

  • The Ocean Spray was incredible. From what I can tell by reading and talking to locals, this is probably the best vessel in the area.
