When's the best time to see the waved albatross?


Ask our Experts

I've been looking into travelling to the Galapagos Islands and am wondering which islands offer the best sightings of waved albatrosses, could you tell me?

Asked by Steve

Typically, you will only see waved albatrosses in the Galápagos from May to November, as they spend the rest of the year out at sea. Punta Suarez on Española Island is the best spot. For a mid-range cruise I recommend the Letty, Eric or Flamingo for 7 nights – the cruise departs on a Sunday.

For a more luxurious cruise, I’d recommend a 7-night itinerary on board the MV Eclipse departing on a Saturday.
