Cruising holidays in Ecuador almost certainly mean a Galapagos boat, one of the best tours in the world.
Galapagos Islands travel offers tame wildlife, volcanic landscapes and a choice of cruise boats, from basic to luxury.
Choose cruises from 4-8 days in length, or longer, and visit as many Galapagos Islands as you can.
For whale watchers, head to the coastal town of Puerto Lopez and enjoy day trips to see whales leaping from the sea.
Don’t forget to read our Galapagos Island Guide, our Galapagos Weather Guide and page about Diving in Galapagos.
Also, check our blogs about avoiding seasickness, a typical day in Galapagos, itinerary advice and cruise vs hotel help.

FANTASTIC! The trip was magical, magnificent and great fun and much of that is credit to you for helping us build such a wonderful holiday.
All of our guides and drivers were excellent but of course some were more exceptional than others. The driver who took us around on our last day in Cusco was better than most guides.
Coral I, Galapagos – On Galapagos we had 2 absolutely brilliant guides.
The boat was excellent and although the itinerary had changed slightly we had a fantastic array of experiences on many different islands. The accommodation was good and we are very pleased we upgraded. Being downstairs helped on those nights that the boat was moving in choppy waters as it only has a 2m draught and so can sway quite heavily.
Food was unbelievably good and plentiful given the limited resources. Extra snacks were provided when we came back from swimming/snorkelling and hot drinks were available 24 hours.
We had a memorable holiday and we thank you for all you did to make it work so well.
In summary, it was terrific and we have already, and will continue to sing the praises of Andean Trails.

We had a great time in Quito and the Galapagos, thanks. Everything went even better than expected – we really liked the friendly hotel, and couldn’t fault anything on the Mary Anne. We also appreciated the unexpected extras – the free transfers to the airport to and from the Galapagos, and payment of the tax. I have already recommended you to a friend!

Larry and Gillian are coming to the end of their month of travelling with Andean Trails in Patagonia. We put together a tour designed to take them off-the-beaten-track – read the first instalment in their blog – covering Santiago and Aysen and remote border crossings. Once in Argentina, Gillian and Larry trekked to the base of Fitzroy and Cerro Torre, and took a day tour to Perito Moreno. They then set off for Torres del Paine on a self-guided trek. Their tour has ended with a few days in Ushuaia and a flight out from Buenos Aires. Check their progress below …
