Our experienced and knowledgeable Galapagos Specialists have unsurpassed expertise and are happy to answer your questions and help you understand your options. Please just give us a call 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.

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 high quality naturalist guiding.
