A trip to the Galapagos is a unique and unforgettable experience.

The islands and their waters are filled with so many different and unique kinds of wildlife, guests never cease to have literally hundreds of “look at that” moments here. From penguins, sea lions, giant Galapagos tortoises and exotic birds (think blue-footed boobies, flamingos, frigate birds, albatrosses, cormorants and more) as far as the eye can see, to sharks, whales, dolphins and countless fish species, these immaculate islands beckon to nature enthusiasts and wildlife lovers alike.
Luxury Galapagos Yacht Cruises & Galapagos Island Tours offers a unique and unforgettable experience. Galapagos Islands top the bucket lists of our travelers. The Galapagos archipelago is, in fact, a living museum of evolutionary changes with free and fearless animals that consistently make visitors ponder their place in the world. There are 13 large islands, six minor ones and more than 40 islets in the island chain of volcanic origin. The tallest rises as much as 2,600 feet above sea level.
Set sail onboard one of the hand-curated ultra-luxe yachts our team of expert trip designers has personally vetted, or call one of the island resorts or hotels home-base for daily excursions out on the water. No matter your choice, each day typically comes complete with two activities: a wet and a dry landing. We organize all types of Galapagos vacations. The most popular are our naturalist cruises of 4, 5, 8 or even 15 days, but if you prefer to see the Galapagos only by land or a combination land-sea trip, we’re happy to personalize a Galapagos trip just for you!
Some popular activities available from our collection of the finest cruise ships, yachts and hotels include snorkeling, SCUBA diving, kayaking, horseback riding, hiking, mountain biking, beach-combing and much more. You’ll visit numerous islands with varied sites like lava fields, island trails, giant tortoise reserves, the Darwin Research Center, marine sites and breeding farms.
Extending Your Luxury Tour to Galapagos almost always starts by planning the Galapagos leg of their trip before planning tours of mainland Ecuador and Peru because cruises have fixed dates, and availability is frequently limited even if reservations are made several months in advance. After confirming the dates of your Galapagos cruise, you can then plan tour extensions such as day tours of the Ecuador cities of Quito or Guayaquil, a luxury expedition to the Amazon Rainforest, and a tour of the Andes mountains visiting indigenous markets, historical haciendas and colorful traditional villages. For those who may have a bit more vacation time, we highly recommend considering a combination Galapagos – Machu Picchu tour.
Planning and preparing for a Galapagos cruise is relatively easy but extremely comprehensive, leaving lots of questions about what islands to visit, what yacht fits my needs, what specials you have on your list, etc.
