“7 night cruise”
Reviewed 5 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Just finished a 7 night cruise on the Nemo 3. Beautiful boat. The crew is amazing. From Raoul the barman. But so much more than just a barman . Daniel and Diego 1st and 2nd mate safely shutting us to all the islands. Wet and dry landings. Carlos the captain. Juan the chef ( excellent food ) our engineer kept the boat running smoothly. Our naturalist / guide was Byron so good. Kept us informed on everything very knowledgeable about everything.
Everything was great except cabin 6 we were told it was the best even though we wanted another cabin. We went with what was told to us by the owners. What a let down. The cabin was so noisy we couldn't sleep. The generator ran 24 hrs a day. And your head vibrated on the too hard pillows. We were lucky and we're moved after 4 horrible nights.cabin 3 was so much better.
Quiet and so much better. We could sleep soundly. Our thanks to the crew. Great boat but cabin 6 is horrible.

Dear Trialgus2013,

It is a pleasure for us to respond to your review,

I commented that according to our tariff cabin 6 is one of the best, that's why we offered it.
We really regret the inconvenience caused, but we appreciate your honesty and those good comments of our crew, that helped you at all times.
We hope you will come back and improve your experience aboard Nemo.

“Extraordinary and exceeded all expectations”
Reviewed 13 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017

My two young adult daughters and I just returned from Ecuador and a fabulous Nemo III cruise Jan 5-8, 2017. We chose Nemo III in Galapagos for reasonable rate, activities -- hiking, snorkeling (or kayaking instead of snorkeling) and wildlife we were likely to see. We had a three person cabin with myself and 2 daughters, all meals included plus snacks, 16 passenger small Class 1 boat with naturalist guide, though there were 13 passengers total including us (plus crew). We were thrilled with our experience -- saw ALL the Galapagos birds and animals we had hoped to see on land and in water, hiking and snorkeling was lovely, highlighted by very knowledgeable and personable guide, Jairo. The 5 person crew completely spoiled us on the boat -- hot chocolate and snacks awaiting us after snorkeling, captain turned boat in circles to allow us to see nearby dolphins up close again and again. Wonderful meals, attentive staff. Though we didn't travel to the far-off islands on our 3 night cruise, we nevertheless saw blue-footed boobies, penguins in and out of the water, nocturnal gulls, frigate birds, great blue heron, giant tortoises, sea turtles (including swimming with us in the water and one on land returning to the water after laying eggs!), sea lions and baby sea lions (couple weeks old and up), eagle rays and spotted rays while snorkeling and from the boat, white tipped reef sharks, Galapagos sharks (swimming with both), all kinds of beautiful, colorful tropical fish, including whole big schools of fish, and so much more... Would highly recommend Nemo catamaran cruises -- made all arrangements directly with Monica Ortiz.

“Experience the Galapagos in comfort and style”
Reviewed 2 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

We were aboard the Nemo III for 8 days with a Natural Habitat Adventures Galapagos snorkeling and kayaking trip. Our floating home during the trip was the Nemo III. The boat is quite comfortable and spacious and I found the bed comfortable enough that each night I looked forward to being rocked to sleep by the waves and movement of the boat. The crew of six was professional and attentive. Food was ample, varied and delicious.
