Adventures from the ocean...

Many people choose to visit the Galápagos Islands on a cruise, where you are based on a motor yacht and make daily landings to explore the various islands on the boat's itinerary. Offering you a real maritime experience, it’s convenient: mostly you travel between the islands at night, awakening in the morning at anchor at a new exciting destination. You can settle in to your cabin for the whole journey, and get to know your like-minded fellow passengers and the crew.

There’s a huge range of vessels to choose from, accommodating from 14-100 guests and catering to a variety of budgets – small, intimate motor yachts, romantic retro vessels, schooners and sleek luxurious expedition cruise ships. There are boats offering cruises especially appropriate  for families, divers or photographers. With our first-hand experience of many of them we can guide you to the right boat for you.

....Or from the land

Others however might find travelling and sleeping on the open sea less appealing, or would like to get to know the one or two of the islands more intimately. Until recently there was not a lot of choice of accommodation in the archipelago, and what's there was relatively simple, offering a homely base for exploration. Now there are a number of more upmarket hotels and good quality fixed-tented lodges, broadening the range of choice.  Not only are you sleeping onshore but you can choose from an ever-expanding menu of activities including wildlife-safaris, kayaking, hiking, mountain biking and day trips to other islands.
