A truly unique wildlife haven, the Galapagos is perhaps the only place in the world where you can see so much nature so close up.
There are 13 ‘proper islands’, only four of which are inhabited, three small islands and hundreds of islets in the archipelago, each with its own distinctive landscape and often its own endemic species. The waters between are bursting with marine life. With so much to discover, one of the best ways to explore the Galapagos is aboard a boat.
Our handpicked luxury vessels range from ultra-private yachts, to spacious catamarans and larger expedition ships. Galapagos cruise itineraries generally range in length from three to seven nights, with longer options for specialist diving trips to the outer lying islands or for those who really want to see it all.
Spend your days hopping between islands, heading ashore to hike up volcanoes, meet giant tortoise and spotting hundreds of birds amid forest of cacti. There’s plenty of beach time, usually shared with playful sea lions and sun bathing marine iguanas, incredible snorkelling and sea kayaking, all with excellent guiding. Return to the boat for freshly prepared cuisine and cocktails as the sun sets.
