South America Cruises FAQs
Thinking about a South America cruise? Here’s a list of frequently asked questions we often hear from our guests.
When is the best time to cruise South America?
The main attraction of a Galapagos cruise is wildlife. At all times of year, there is a lot of wildlife present and a different species will be breeding or nesting – so from that side, there is no one time better than another. One consideration is the weather – temperatures are highest and there is most rainfall from around December to March. This is also the time with the calmest seas and warmest water. June to September is a cooler and drier time of year though it is windier and the seas are rougher, something which travelers who suffer seasickness should keep in mind.
For the Amazon River cruises, there are two distinct seasons – the high water and the low water season. In general the best time for an Amazon cruise is during the high water season which is from around December to May. At this time ships can travel up smaller and more remote channels of the river.
Patagonia cruises mostly run only from around October to April avoiding winter. Day length is greatest in December and January and this is also usually when some of the best weather can be expected though it is changeable all year.
