CRUISES OR LAND BASE
The cruises are a fantastic option and the one preferred by Galapagosislands.us the cruises
allows you to enjoy a unique experience in the Galapagos Islands, most of the cruises offer very
impressive itineraries, visiting not only important sites but also remote islets in the archipelago.
The cruises navigate during the night then the passengers have the opportunity to spend more
time visiting the islands and doing activities during the day.
Each cruise has an English speaking – naturalist guide for tours and excursions, also a well-
trained crew to offer an excellent service and assistance with all your needs on board. On the
cruise you can enjoy excellent international gastronomy for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Luxury and first-class cruises include equipment for activities such as kayaking, snorkeling,
dinghy ride etc., while in the cheaper cruises you have to pay a small rental cost for them.
Additionally, the 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 of
Galapagos and your guide will give a briefing about the activities for next day.
Usually, large cruises tend to be more stable as catamarans; large cruisers offer onboard spas,
glass bottom boats and other entertainment while small cruises offer more personalized service.
HOTEL-BASED / LAND PROGRAMS.
If you prefer to stay in a hotel to enjoy the populated islands, our programs allow you to select
up to 4 different itineraries options: island hopping, Diving, Land Programs and multisport.
These kinds of programs offer a wide range of activities for all interests, which allows visitors the
flexibility to create their own schedule. However, a very extensive programs can be impractical,
only 4 islands have hotels (Santa Cruz, Isabela, San Cristóbal and one hotel on Floreana), the
navigation between islands can take from 2 to 3 hours.
