Galapagos Island Cruises

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."
