Tour Details

For many travelers, including us, a Galapagos Islands vacation is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Here, naturalists have been observing curious animals for nearly two centuries. It was here that Charles Darwin proved evolution. And it is here that visitors travel to experience one of the world’s most remote and remarkable destinations.

From our perspective, sailing on a live-aboard boat is the best way to go for your Galapagos vacation. You’ll be able to experience these remarkable islands the way explorers have always experienced them – as sailors. Live-aboards also offer the ability to spend more time in different places – multiple shore landings or snorkels per day. So, hop in with us on this thrilling getaway to Galapagos.

What to Expect

The first country in the world to declare that nature had constitutional rights (in 2008), Ecuador, named after the equator, is the smallest of the Andean countries, but still packs a punch.

  • Visit a local farm where tortoises roam freely in their natural habitat
  • Relax in one of the most wonderful beaches in the Galapagos, Tortuga Bay
  • Snorkel with incredible marine life
  • Admire the fantastic Kicker Rock formation in San Cristobal Island
