M/Y Tip Top III

Tip Top service and logistics await!

The First Class yacht Tip Top III was designed and constructed in 2001 and redesigned in 2008 to offer the highest level of security and comfort for its guests.

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 III is a beautiful yacht, 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 yacht.

Keep in mind that the Tip Top III 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 Tip Top III!
