Galapagos Cruise Main Attractions

During our Galapagos tours (among other activities), you are taken to shore in small groups by a multilingual naturalist guide, who will explain the captivating geology and history of each Island that takes you back millions of years.

These cruises will offer the opportunity to walk, swim, snorkel, photograph, and observe the abundant variety of wildlife on each visited Island.

The best thing is that you will have the chance to swim with sea lions, walk among black marine iguanas basking in the sun and observe the elaborate mating rituals of boobies, albatrosses, or male frigate birds displaying their red pouches.

Notes for Our Cheap Cruises

The route and program may vary according to the Galapagos National Park policies and regulations, weather conditions, seasonal changes, safety reasons and wildlife encounters.

Safety will be always part of the daily programming of activities. Kindly follow all suggestions. It is compulsory to wear a life vest during all dinghy rides between the ship and the shore.

Flexibility is essential in order to cope with nature's outstanding features. Given the Islands' volcanic origin, and the fact that most walking is done over pristine and irregular volcanic terrain, you must be in suitable physical condition for this kind of outings.

Our cheap cruises also organize activities like boat rides, glass-bottom boat trips, snorkeling, swimming, lectures, all complementing everyone's experience.

The Expedition Staff of this Galapagos cruise will provide you with snorkeling gear (mask and snorkel, fins, floating vest and net bag).

The operation does not carry prescription masks. A shortie wet suit is highly recommended from June to December. Your cooperation is a key point when complying with the rules of the Galapagos National Park. This alone can guarantee a major success in the expedition.
