The original boat was named in grateful memory of Angel, the grandfather of Galapagos born brothers Hugo and Leonardo Andrade, who helped his two grandsons to build their first fishing boat, with which they could earn a living and support their families.
As pioneers in the Galapagos, the brothers gave up fishing and converted their boat to carry visitors to the islands. Their extensive knowledge of the islands, gained over the years of working as fishermen, had made them expert captains and guides, extremely well able to explain the natural beauty of the Galapagos to tourists.
Thus, they took an important step to support the conservation of the Galapagos, by moving from fishing to actively promoting the protection of their islands.
After more than a decade of working in tourism, the brothers were able to apply their extensive knowledge and experience in the design of the new Angelito I, ensuring that it was equipped with all the facilities needed to provide maximum security and comfort for tourists. Built in the Galapagos, its solid wood construction has more than proved itself, as shown by its unblemished safety record.
