Angelito

This custom motor yacht, made completely of solid wooden construction, was built in Galapagos in 1992 and completely refurbished in October 2013.  A family-run company, the Angelito is owned, operated and designed by two Ecuadorian brothers who were previously fishermen. As pioneers in Galapagos, the brothers are proud of the yacht's excellent safety record.

Angelito is one of the best small yachts, excellently maintained, and has a wonderful staff. Guests appreciate the spacious sun and shade decks which, together with a large bar/dining room, provide many comfortable areas to read, take a siesta or simply relax between island visits. Families with children are welcome on Angelito I which provides a safe and comfortable environment for all ages. Family charters are specially adapted to accommodate everyone's interests.

Angelito's itineraries are now 4, 5, 8, 11, 12 or 15 days.

For snorkelers, snorkel gear is available for passenger's use. Plenty of time is allocated to explore the amazing underwater world. Beginners are encouraged to try snorkeling, with guides available to help. The dinghy is always close by.

One of the guides who has more than 14 years experience in the Galapagos has been working with Angelito from the beginning.

Some history on the Angelito.

The original boat was named in grateful memory of Angel, the grandfather of Galapagos born brothers Hugo and Leonardo Andrade, who helped his two grandsons build their first fishing boat, with which they could earn a living and support their families. As pioneers in the Galapagos, the brothers gave up fishing and converted their boat to carry visitors to the islands. Their extensive knowledge of the islands, gained over the years of working as fishermen, have made them expert captains and guides, extremely knowledgeable about the natural beauty of the Galapagos.

The brothers took an important step to support the conservation of the Galapagos by moving from fishing to actively promoting the protection of their islands. After more than a decade of working in tourism, the brothers applied their extensive knowledge and experience in the design of the Angelito I, ensuring that it was equipped with all the facilities needed to provide maximum security and comfort for tourists. The Angelito is truly a special yacht in the archipelago.
