We take you around the remote and most exceptional islands of the archipelago, following original and flexible routes that can easily be combined. Even our shorter routes visit some of the out-of-the-way sites! You will keep going from one surprise in the other.

Our programs include a wide range of activities, such as guided hikes, inflatable dinghy-rides, visits to Galapagos giant tortoise breeding projects, interpretive botanic trails and visitors centers. Additional activities, such as snorkelling, are part of the itineraries as well. These activities depend on local conditions and will be coordinated together with the guide. Scuba diving can be booked optionally.

Our standard routes

Route A ( west) is a 7 nights naturalist cruise. Route B ( east) has the built-in option to book a shorter 3 () or a 4 () nights itinerary, but can be booked as a 7 nights trip as well.

Please note that during all these cruises the first and last day of the itinerary are partially occupied by traveling to Galapagos or back to the continent. When booking an 7 nights B or longer cruise, you may experience a change of fellow passengers. In such a case you will have some free time to spend on your own on board, which is an ideal moment to relax, read a book from our library or maybe to select best photos you have taken. On these ‘passenger change days’ the morning excursion will normally be done with the passengers leaving the yacht and the afternoon excursion will be done with the passengers arriving to the yacht.

 

  • Route B4 ( north-east): Our shortest route gets the most out of just four days Galapagos. It combines the exclusive bird-island of Genovesa (with red-footed boobies and the short-eared owl) with the popular highlights of South Plaza and Santa Fe (both with land iguanas and giant cactus trees).
  • Route B5 ( south): Our 4 nights southern itinerary gives a quite complete overview of Galapagos. Moreover this route combines two of the most popular snorkel sites of Galapagos: Champion Islet and Bartolome, where you might snorkel with fishing penguins.
  • Route B ( east): Our 7 nights eastern route visits most popular sites of Galapagos and exclusive Genovesa. This varied route combines the overwhelming sea bird colonies of Genovesa and Española with highly appreciated South Plaza.
  • Route A ( west): Our 7 nights western route primarily explores the remote and exclusive western islands of Isabela and pristine Fernandina, which are both just recently born out of fire. After rounding Isabela clockwise we will return to the heart of the archipelago for several landings at Santiago and its satellite islets, before finishing on and around Santa Cruz and North Seymour. This cruise itinerary includes two nights of quiet rest at fairly calm anchorage-sites.
