Though it's possible to stay on land, the incomparable Galápagos Islands are most commonly visited by water. And no wonder: nearly 20 islands form this immaculate volcanic archipelago, many remarkably different in terrain and native wildlife, and the sheer diversity of habitat can only truly be appreciated by a visit on an expedition cruise.
Cruises can last anywhere between 4 and 15 days, and the boats we use range in size, accommodating between 12 and 100 guests. The daily itinerary is very similar from boat to boat and no matter what the overall group size, guided excursions on land will be small and intimate – by law tour groups on the islands can consist of no more than 16 visitors to minimise the impact of tourism upon the unique island environment.
We offer so many different options that it’s impossible to summarise them all, but one element remains constant: the astounding creatures make this paradisiacal archipelago the stage for an ever-enthralling theatre of natural life. No matter at which time of year you visit, or which islands are included in your itinerary, you will always be greeted with wildlife in extraordinary abundance and with no fear of your presence, making this one of the most magical and rewarding places on Earth for nature lovers.
