There are several Galapagos Islands cruises and itineraries that you can choose from. We recommend longer cruise itineraries, so that you can see more of the islands, including even some of the more remote islands.
The most popular Galapagos islands cruises itineraries include these spots:
San Cristobal Island:This is the main island in the chain, and is home to the Puerto Baquerizo Moreno. Here is where Charles Darwin and his crew first landing. You'll see Red-Footed Booby, tortoises, and sea lions.
Bartolome Island:Here you'll find warm, calm waters for snorkeling, with penguins and sea lions nearby. There's also the iconic Pinnacle Rock here, and scenic vistas all around.
Santa Fe Island: This island has several tranquil coves where marine and land iguanas roam, as well as Galapagos Hawks and finches.
Isabela Island:The volcanic features of this island are readily apparent, as are the many species of wildlife, including penguins, flamingos, turtles, iguanas, and cormorants. There are mangrove trees and tidal pools to explore here as well.
North Seymour Island: Here you might catch sight of frigate birds and blue-footed booby birds, so keep an eye out while walking by their nesting colonies.
Santa Cruz Island: Some of the Galapagos's most impressive tortoises live here, and there's beautiful beaches and gullies paved by lava flows that you can explore. There's also a town here.
Española Island: Home to birds like the Waved Albatross and the Blue-footed Booby. You can also watch the dramatic Punta Suárez blowhole.
