We are going to head to the Galapagos in late Jun/early July and want to do a 10-12 day cruise, and honed in on the Alya. My husband prefers the combination of A & C routes which leaves out Isabella altogether. What are the "must" sees on Isabella that we need to consider if we can live without seeing them? Also, any comparisons of the Alya to say the Endemic, Elite or Ocean Spray? We definitely want a small boat and the "luxury" ones seem to best suit our occasion. Thanks very much for any and all feedback!

See if this information from the Galapagos Conservancy would help https://www.galapagos.org/about_galapagos/about-galapagos/the-islands/isabela/ Everyone has their own must-sees.

Hello

From personal experience , I will go for the the B and C schedule's, why because yo get to see more of the wildlife of Galapagos and Isabela has an incredible places for snorkeling.

All the yachts that you mention are excellent but Elite and Endemic are on the top of the category.

All the best
