Tour Description

Visit Galapagos and discover islands of otherworldly landscapes, sometimes resembling the moon more than a Pacific Island. Forged by ancient volcanoes and carved out by the sea, the best way to experience this unique archipelago is by Galapagos cruise. Join us for 5 days as we meander our way among favourite visitor sites of the Galapagos National Park and experience all the incredible flora and fauna. On your Galapagos Islands vacation, you may encounter bird species such as nesting Waved Albatross, all three species of Boobies, courting Frigate birds with their bright red throats and delicate flamingos wading through lagoons. Plus many more reptiles, amphibians, mammals, insects and more that have been making this land their home for millennia.

When you visit Galapagos you can be as active or as relaxed as you like. Snorkel, swim, dive and kayak among playful penguins and fur seals, hike next to lava lizards and Giant Tortoises; or simply recline on the ship’s deck or on one of the famous Galapagos beaches. All of the cruise ship's facilities are at your disposal as well as our friendly crew and expert guide who will join you on daily excursions and educate you about the fascinating natural history. Enjoy a land of incredible biodiversity when you join us on a Galapagos cruise.
