Encantada Galapagos sailboat introduction:

The family owned Encantada is one of the smallest yachts to cruise around the Galapagos Islands. With place for only 12 passengers the admosphere on board is more intimate and the service is more personal. Ad on top the very experienced crew and good reviews we received about its cruises and we dare to say that this yacht is one of the best deals we have to offer.
