Live the experience!
Your clients can enjoy a small group expedition aboard the Sea Lion Yacht, which belongs to the Finch Bay Galapagos Hotel. It has a capacity for 20 guests, with two bathrooms, two changing rooms, and three decks. We offer daily departures aboard our Sea Lion Yacht to several official visitor sites within the Galapagos National Park. Our Sea Lion Yacht is also one of the few Day Tours in Galapagos that comes with two naturalist guides onboard (as opposed to just one), meaning your clients will enjoy better service, more insightful explorations, and overall safety. The Sea Lion Yacht also comes complete with an onboard chef and an entire crew dedicated to ensuring the journey to your client’s island of choice goes as smoothly as possible. Each tour provides opportunities to observe wildlife from our “Big 15” list of iconic species!

I am a proud native of Ecuador with an insatiable passion for exploring the natural beauty and rich cultural diversity of my country and other destinations across South America and the world. My love for travel was sparked at a young age, thanks partly to the sport I practiced and the opportunity to live abroad for a year. Through these experiences, I have discovered countless new cultures and breathtaking locations, which have left a lasting impression on me. In particular, South America is a treasure trove of awe-inspiring natural wonders and diverse cultural traditions waiting to be explored and savored.

I found my passion in Tourism and Hospitality at a young age. All of my trips inside and outside of Ecuador inspired me to pursue a professional degree in Tourism, where I learned the technical and theoretical aspects of the industry. This job allowed me to develop the ability to support clients in different stages of trip planning in an effective way. Usually, when I am not working, you can find me traveling and meeting new places. My favorite destination so far is The Galapagos Islands.
