GALAPAGOS CRUISES and BOAT CHARTER

 

A Galapagos cruise brings you into a wonderful world, to the Last Paradise !!! 

Bilingual naturalist guides authorized from the Galapagos National Park show you the wonders of Galapagos during interpretive walks.

In briefings they explain already lots of things. On walks, dinghy rides along the shore, on snorkeling/diving trips or just relaxing on one of the wonderful beaches you will find very special details about what’s Galapagos, a total variety of

different impressions…

 

The boats operating in the islands are cruise ships, yachts, sailboats and catamaran/trimaran. They offer different standards and options, for ex. Diving.

In general all cruise boats are working like a floating hotel with full service.

You stay overnight  aboard and sail long distances between the islands at night.

During daytime you spend as much time as possible on the islands. 

You have a minimum of 2 visits daily of 1 -3 hours (sometimes more)

depending on the specifications of each visitor site.

The National Park Galapagos is coordinating all the boats and their itineraries

and gives a special cruise permit. They distribute the bigger and faster ships

(most of them 1. class boats and big cruise ships) to the islands further away

and keep the smaller slower ships more to the central islands.

So fact is: you will never find more than a couple of boats at the same time

at the one place.

 

Most of the boats offer cruises for 4,5 or 8 days sometimes 10, 12 and 15 days

or longer. In general we recommend an 8 day trip to have a good idea about

what’s Galapagos.
