GALAPAGOS ISLAND CRUISES

CRUISES TO THE GALAPAGOS ARCHIPELAGO

GALAPAGOS ISLANDS SMALL-SHIP CRUISES
Choose from 4 to 15 Day cruises and a variety of itineraries and comfort levels.


The Galapagos is an archipelago of 12 large and several hundred smaller volcanic islands occupying a 4800 sq km (3,000 sq mile) area about 1000 km (620 miles) west of Ecuador, the Galapagos Islands have become one of the world’s premiere adventure travel destinations. Over the course of your visit, you’ll enjoy up-close views of unusual, specially-adapted animals, plants, and terrains including sea lions, tortoises, iguanas, land and sea birds, volcanic landscapes, unusual cacti, and vegetation. Little has changed about the islands since Charles Darwin’s visit in 1835 to “this little world within itself” inspired his first theories of evolution. Nearly the entire archipelago is a natural sanctuary where you’ll have thrilling encounters with some of the world’s last completely untamed wildlife that has never learned to fear the presence of humans.

Activities in the Galapagos Islands:
See prehistoric iguanas, giant tortoises, exotic birds, plants, and beautiful landscapes of volcanoes, lava cones and magma flows. Swim and snorkel at any time of the year in the warm clear waters among tropical fish, manta rays, sea lions, swordfish, sea turtles, and other marine wildlife. Some yachts also offer kayaking or SUP.

Multilingual naturalist guides lead shore excursions twice a day to a place unlike any other full of wildlife that has no fear of humans. Lectures explaining the geology, history, evolution, flora, and fauna of the islands are provided.

With a wide variety of vessels to choose from, we are sure to find the perfect Galapagos Cruise for you! Contact us HERE.

It is up to you to select which itinerary best suits your wishes, interests, and physical/medical condition; we kindly help to simplify your choice by sharing our professional expertise.
