A yacht may be comfortably designed and furbished, but finally its operating staff makes the difference for your most pleasant stay on board, in terms of safety, care and maintenance.
Our welcoming staff members are understanding, helpful and dedicated to attend your requests promptly, which is possible thanks to our superb passenger-crew rate of 16:11 (including naturalist guide). All are Ecuadorian and speak mostly Spanish, but both your naturalist guide and the barman know English as well.
Meet the Members
As the highest authority on board, the captain supervises the crew and is responsible for safety on board and operational management.
Together with his first mate he forms the bridge-team that safely navigates the yacht in shifts around the archipelago. The captain also has first aid abilities and access to the board pharmacy in case of emergencies.

He also drives the inflatable dinghy (‘Zodiac’) to bring you on shore and back aboard, to keep lookout while deep-water snorkelling, or to explore the shoreline or mangles from a different perspective (and assist the naturalist guide to detect wildlife).
Mostly hidden in the catamaran’s engine rooms, both engineers operate and maintain in shifts all the yacht’s machinery, such as engines, aggregates, air-conditioning, water treatment, among other technical equipment.
They also manage fuel, desalinated water and waste water supplies, with help of the first mate or sailors.
Both sailors assist on the decks when anchoring, on boarding/disembarking or driving the inflatable dinghies (‘Zodiacs’) and assist the naturalist guide to detect wildlife or keep lookout while deep water snorkelling.
They also carry out small maintenance when you are on excursion, help cleaning the social areas and cabins or take care of your luggage during transfers.
Your welcoming barman is not only a master in preparing exotic cocktails or serving your meals, but he is also your English speaking host, who lets you feel at home and is the responsible person to guarantee your service on board. Please feel free to ask him what you need.
Our professional cook proudly treats you with one after another surprise from the galley. Healthy, exquisite and creative dishes are highly important to us.
While you are on excursion, the cook and his kitchen help prepare fresh and healthy meals, using best available ingredients.
The often invisible kitchen help works hard and discretely in the background of the galley for your catering services and supply of ingredients; but sometimes he may come out to serve your dish as well.
While you are on excursion, the housekeeper makes sure that your cabin and the social areas are cleaned spotlessly twice a day. Assisted by the sailors he attributes largely to your comfortable stay on board. Together with the other crew members the housekeeper may also take care of your luggage during transfers.
