I just received the news that this 1st class 32 passenger ship ran aground on Tuesday, 16 June, on Espanola island at Punta Cevallos. It was towed back to Puerto Ayora, where apparently it is now leaking fuel into the water. No injuries are reported.
Quasar Nautica lost the Parranda to fire just a few months ago. This Ecuadorian company, with a top reputation, will be sorely hit. Let's hope the fuel issue will be contained. If you have a booking on the Evolution in the next few weeks, I suggest you contact your travel agent immediately.
