Galapagos Cruises

Galapagos cruises are an extraordinary opportunity to see one of the most unique and fascinating wilderness areas on the planet. These are nature cruises, designed for travelers who want a trip focused on wildlife and ecotourism. A variety of hiking and snorkeling activities are available on all boats. Our knowledgeable Destination Specialists can answer your questions about any vessel and help you choose the ideal cruise. Please review our Luxury, First Class, and Tourist Superior Class options below and contact us to discuss your trip.

Luxury Class Yachts

Galapagos luxury yachts are different from normal luxury cruises. While they offer premium service and tend to be more sleek, elegant, and modern than other Galapagos options, they are still expedition ships with a focus on ecotourism. Luxury boats may offer larger cabin sizes, or amenities such as a jacuzzi or private balconies, and generally offer the highest quality naturalist guides.

Tourist Superior Class Yachts

The tourist class Galapagos boats offer the most economical cruise options. The ships are often decorated in a simple fashion, and cabins may be slightly smaller, but they are clean and comfortable. The ones we recommend offer intimate, family-like service with a level of high quality naturalist guiding not consistently found in this class.
