Galapagos Islands Cruises

Galapagos Cruises with Wildlife Experts

Welcome Aboard!
Experience the best island tours of the Galapagos Islands aboard our fleet of first-class expedition vessels. Discover a world of enchanted volcanic islands with unique species of wildlife. Weekly departures (year round) visit the most spectacular sites in the archipelago.

Only in the Galapagos can you snorkel with a penguin on the Equator and, on the same day, swim with a sea lion in a secluded bay or go eye-to-eye with a flightless sea bird. The islands' isolation from the mainland means that many animals have no natural predators, therefore their apparent fearlessness. Around the Galapagos, where cold and warm waters intermingle, fur seals, sea turtles, dolphins, whales, and sharks thrive, unafraid of human predators. Enjoy the crazy courtship dance of blue-footed boobies, watch puffed-up, crimson-throated frigate birds show off for their mates, gaze, awestruck, at hundreds of waved albatrosses and ponder the world's pinkest flamingos. Marvel at marine iguanas, lava lizards, and masked boobies.

Wildlife activities designed by wildlife specialists, in the world's premier wildlife destination:

  • - Snorkel with playful sea lions, penguins, rays and colorful fish.
  • - Watch the elaborate mating dances of blue and red-footed boobies.
