galapagos

Comprising nearly 60 islands and islets adrift in the vast Pacific Ocean, few adventures come close to witnessing the Galapagos up close on a luxury cruise ship.

Ensuring you experience as much of the islands as possible whilst taking away much of the hassle, a cruise ship can take you to places inaccessible to land-based travellers. Ecuador’s most popular attraction and a place of scientific wonder for centuries, few places can match the other-worldly landscape and wildlife of the Galapagos Islands. Best experienced from the comfort of a modern Galapagos cruise ship, simply sit back and marvel at the natural diversity and scenery that set these islands part from all others.

cruise highlights

  • A tiny island packed with penguins, Isla Bartolomé is a remarkable place for snorkelling, and was brought to life in Russell Crowe’s epic Master & Commander.
  • The largest island in the Galapagos, Isla Isabela offers a rare glimpse into the island’s human history, with the famous Wall of Tears built by prisoners after World War 2.
  • The Charles Darwin Research Station on Santa Cruz is home to a wide variety of wildlife species, including tortoises that are well over 100 years old.
  • The tradition in Post Office Bay in Floreana is that if you find a letter addressed to someone who lives near your home, you send it on by hand.

January - May

January - May

This is wet season in Galapagos, but it usually amounts to nothing more than isolated periods of drizzle. Some birds begin their mating rituals, with sea turtles and iguanas hatching between March and May. The months between February and April are usually when the seas are at their calmest as well.
