M/C Tip Top II

TIP TOP service and logistics await!

The M/C Tip Top II was built in 2008 and redesigned in 2015-2016 to offer the highest level of comfort and the best possible experience in the Galapagos Islands.

The Tip Top Fleet offers the best possible service and Tip Top logistics and operation in the Galapagos Islands and during transit in Ecuador Mainland. Partnered with Lufthansa and part of Lufthansa City Center in Ecuador, you know you are in great hands when you book any of the Tip Top yachts.

The Tip Top II is a brand new beautiful catamaran, which will provide speed, safety and plenty of amenities on board, so you can worry about more important things like what cocktail to choose to enjoy on the spacious and inviting sundeck.

On board, you will have a choice of two week-long itineraries, Option I and II. The Option I Itinerary heads west and visits Isabela, Fernandina in style and uninterrupted and makes a great stop in Bartholomew Island for you to take the quintessential selfie in the Galapagos with Pinnacle Rock in the background. The Option II Itinerary heads to the Northern island of Genovesa (aka bird island) and South to visit Española where you can spot the magnificent albatross and to Floreana for some history about the first Galapagos settlers and some fantastic snorkeling activities.

Connoisseur Tip: 

As usual, I would recommend taking a week-long itinerary, Option I to be exact. But if you don’t have a week to spare for the Galapagos, I would go for the shorter 5-day Itinerary which visits Floreana and Española in style and will provide a great experience aboard a fantastic catamaran.

Keep in mind that the Tip Top II and the rest of the Tip Top fleet have some amazing last minute deals you can take advantage of, just inquire with your personal Connoisseur.

Get ready for a TIP TOP Galapagos Experience, aboard the ”new” Tip Top II!
