Summary

The Galapagos Loop offers guests a unique Ecuadorian experience. Relax as a private yacht whisks you away to three of the most popular Galapagos Islands – Santa Cruz, Floreana and Isabela Island. Each island offers something unique to its guests. Santa Cruz is known for its sandy white beaches and Puerto Ayora, an archipelago hub for tourists. Floreana is a smaller island with an intriguing past; learn about the history of the pirates here. And last but certainly not least, Isabela is the largest island in the Galapagos, which means there is plenty of diverse wildlife and exotic terrain to explore! While visiting each island, choose from exciting onshore and offshore excursions such as snorkeling with colorful marine life, hiking in the lush highlands or simply discovering the history of the Galapagos at the Charles Darwin Research Station. If you’re hoping to hop from one Galapagos Island to another in a short amount of time, this is the perfect tour for you.
