Offering a range of itineraries that will transport you from bay to bay, you can pick your cruise to suit your own personal interests and travel must-sees. Explore Central or Southern Galapagos on four-night cruises, or Northern Galapagos on a highly-recommended, longer six-night cruise. Providing plenty of opportunities to follow in Charles Darwin‘s footsteps, marvel at the weird and wonderful wildlife as you explore these famous isles in the company of like-minded travellers.

Offering guests a laid-back atmosphere and exemplary service, the high staff-to-passenger ratio of 26 experienced crew members to just 40 guests will make your stay on board as comfortable and welcoming as possible. The vessel’s three expert English-speaking naturalists will also guide you through the region’s geology, wildlife, astronomy, evolution and marine activities, providing numerous opportunities to ask any questions.

With all meals included, you can fuel your day of activity with a nourishing breakfast, break the day with lunch and after a delicious dinner served in either the dining room or al fresco out on the Boat Deck, partake in one of the ship’s fascinating programs as you turn your gaze to the heavens and learn about the stars. During the day, activities range from heading out with guides on the Zodiacs to explore both the sea and land, as well as leisurely glass-bottom boat rides and time for snorkelling.

There are various route options around the Galapagos available, so you can choose your cruise based on your own interests.
