Galapagos cruises are a fantastic option to experience the enchanted islands. Cruises allow you to enjoy a unique experience in the Galapagos Islands; most cruises offer complete 8-day itineraries, visiting renowned sites, as well as small islets in the archipelago.
Cruises do most of their navigation during the night, allowing the opportunity to spend more time visiting the islands and enjoying activities during the day.Each cruise has an English speaking, naturalist guide, for tours and excursions, as well as a well-trained crew who offer excellent service and will assist you with all your needs while cruising the Galapagos. Aboard the cruise, you will enjoy tasty international gastronomy for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Luxury and first-class cruises include equipment for activities such as kayaking, snorkeling, dinghy rides etc., on the other hand, more budget friendly cruises will rent this equipment for a nominal fee. Cruises have social areas to relax and enjoy the sunset with a cocktail; most of the cruises offer (before dinner) presentations about conservation, important information on Galapagos and your guide will brief you regarding the activities for the next day.
Usually, large cruises and catamarans tend to be more stable; large cruisers offer onboard spas, glass bottom boats and other entertainment while small cruises offer a more personalized and intimate service.
HOTEL-BASED / LAND PROGRAMS
If you prefer to stay in a hotel to enjoy the inhabited islands, our programs allow you to select up to four different itinerary options: island hopping, Diving, Land Programs and multisport. These land based programs offer a wide range of activities for all interests, which gives visitors the flexibility to create their own schedule. However, very extensive programs can be impractical, only four islands have lodging options (Santa Cruz, Isabela, San Cristobal and Floreana), the navigation between islands can take from two to three hours.
