Galapagos Cruises (Ecuador)

What is it like to cruise around the Galapagos Islands?


The ships that we utilize can hold from 35 to 100 people. The larger the ship, the less you will feel the motion of the ocean. Cabins are very comfortable, offering two twin+ beds per cabin. Upgraded cabins offer balconies. Breakfast and lunch are generally served buffet style and dinners are a la carte. Special dietary needs can easily be met when requested in advance. You'll have amazing naturalist guides with you who are Galapagos natives. Your itinerary may also include stops on uninhabited islands that you would not be able to access without some kind of a tour.


All of your needs for comfort are met: There's never a dull moment, even when you're on the ship (there's a different optional activity every evening, and educational sessions between visits to land). Each day, there will be at least 2 excursions to visit one island or another. You will be astounded by the amazing wildlife that surrounds you wherever you go, and you can choose a tour that offers excellent opportunities for snorkeling.
