A Galapagos Islands cruise offers a unique wildlife holiday to adventure travellers looking to immerse themselves in the breathtaking nature of this amazing archipelago. A year-round destination, you can choose from 4, 5 or 8-day cruise programmes (or longer if you wish) for your perfect Galapagos boat tour. Add some diving or a few days based on land to get the most out of your holiday to the Galapagos.
We offer a range of comfortable Galapagos cruises, on boats of varying sizes, with the best professional naturalist guides. Choose the option that best suits you whether catamaran, yacht or large motor cruiser. We have family-specific cruises too, with top specialist guides expert in looking after kids.
On Galapagos island cruises you have opportunities to snorkel with sea lions, turtles, multi-coloured fish and even penguins and sharks. You will walk with giant tortoises, get up close to boobies, frigate birds, the waved albatross, land and marine iguanas, Galapagos finches and many more species. You will also enjoy and learn about the weird and wonderful plants that populate these remote volcanic islands as your Galapagos boat tour makes stops at a variety of sites.
Each Galapagos island has its own unique wildlife, and landscape. Some feature weird lava formations and some have black sand beaches. Whichever Galapagos cruise you choose, you will get close to the amazingly tame wildlife, see the exotic flora and witness the variety of landscapes on your daily excursions.
Each Galapagos boat tour – whether you choose tourist class, superior tourist, first-class or luxury cruise ship – offers two separate, week-long tour itineraries. You choose which itinerary you prefer. Visit Genovesa in the north, Isabela and Fernandina in the west, Floreana or Española in the south and San Cristobal in the east. Almost all Galapagos boat tours take in the central island of Santa Cruz, and all of them offer, without doubt, amazing Galapagos holidays.

"Galapagos felt like one highlight after another. I loved Isabela and its island feel. The snorkelling there, penguins on the rocks, sharks and loads of turtles. It was just a great time."

We both felt our South America holiday was the highlight of 2012, and it was easy to see why people travel halfway across the world to see the sights of Peru and Ecuador. Our highlight overall was probably the Galapagos cruise and we never guessed how fascinated we’d become by the landscapes, the island and sea animal life, and the history of the islands. However the Inca Trail was also every bit as good as we expected; we were very glad we decided to take the extra day in Macchu Picchu as there really was all too much to take in on the first day and the weather was much better on the second.
From an organisational point of view, it was such a relief that everything simply worked; as we were trying to pack so much in to a tight timescale it seemed risky that had anything gone wrong it could have been difficult to get back on track.
Thank you again for everything you did to make our holiday such a success. I don’t think we are planning anything as big for 2013 but we are just starting to think about that now.

Our holiday was FANTASTIC definitely lived up to all my expectations and spending my birthday on the Galapagos was very special. The highlight was probably snorkelling with the sea turtles. We saw so much of the remarkable wildlife of the Galapagos and were also very lucky to see a pod of pilot whales while we were navigating just after crossing the equator which was so exciting and also some bottle nose dolphins.

THE NORTH OF PERU The north of Peru is brimming with treasures and it is much less travelled than the southern hot spots of Cusco and Machu Picchu. Northern Peru travel never fails to surprise and impress, it is a fascinating part of this wonderful country well worth exploring. There is masses to see and do here so I would recommend a good amount of time. If you can I would dedicate a week as a minimum and ideally two weeks to a tour to the north of Peru.
