Top 7 Galapagos Islands Cruises
Cruise the Galapagos Islands, Ecuador’s world-famous wildlife destination and important in Charles Darwin’s Theory of Natural Selection. You can study wildlife close-up while snorkeling, hiking, and relaxing on the islands.
Typically a day in the Galapagos will see you make a couple of landings on the islands and have guided tours in small groups. Landings can be wet or dry. A wet landing means you disembark from a small zodiac boat directly into shallow water, whereas a dry landing means to disembark on land. The tours on a Galapagos Islands cruise typically include short walks, snorkeling and sometimes kayaking. The ships usually travel between islands overnight.
There is a bewildering variety of cruise itineraries of the Galapagos Islands! The general rule is that all itineraries include a good amount of variety and will include several islands. The shortest Galapagos cruises are three nights, the longest is 14 nights. For most travelers we’d recommend a cruise of four to seven nights, you’ll be sure to see plenty of the wildlife of the Galapagos Islands on a cruise of this length.
