The trimaran‘s cabins were very spacious, each of the eight staterooms had its own balcony, our rooms were kept very clean, the food was healthy and delicious, the staff was very attentive and helpful, and our naturalist was outstanding…we found manta rays, sharks, barracuda, and sea turtles along with large schools of colorful fish. Sea lions swam playfully around us. On land, the birds, sea lions, and iguanas were abundant and very approachable for photos.
