Cruise the Galapagos Islands

The incomparable Galápagos Island, sitting adrift of mainland Ecuador, are most commonly visited by water on a cruise. And no wonder: nearly 20 islands form this immaculate volcanic archipelago, many remarkable different in terrain and native wildlife, and the sheer diversity of habitat can only truly be appreciated by a visit on an expedition cruise,

Cruise tours to the Galápagos Islands 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.

Regardless of the time of year you take your Galápagos Islands cruise, 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.

See the highlights of the Galápagos Islands on Signature Galápagos holiday. Explore Quito, the highland capital of Ecuador, before embarking on a leisurely cruise to the Galápagos Islands. Visit the undersea world on transparent-bottomed kayaks and admire the fascinating landscape and wildlife during land excursions. Or, enjoy a luxury cruise around the islands on board the elegant Grace on our Luxury Galápagos Islands Cruise.
