Luxury Galapagos Holidays & Cruises
For the ultimate holiday or family adventure, head to the Galapagos Islands for THE wildlife experience in South America. Snorkel with penguins and sea lions and get unbelievably close to some of the most fascinating species on earth such as the marine iguana (the only lizard to swim in the ocean), the playful blue footed booby and the magnificent giant tortoise.
One of the first UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the Galapagos can be visited year round, thanks to its proximity to the equator and a stay here or a luxury cruise on a boat, yacht or catamaran combines perfectly with a few days in colourful Ecuador.
The Exsus team has detailed knowledge and personal experience of the many luxury motor and sail boats which tour the Galapagos and there are a number of considerations to bear in mind when choosing which Galapagos cruise is right for you. Recent regulation changes which have affected the itineraries each boat follows, also mean that routes and the duration of routes vary widely.
In addition to different routings, smaller boats tend to afford guests a higher level of flexibility on activities, whereas some of the larger boats may have more pre-determined activities but offer more facilities on-board. If diving's a priority, some boats include this activity and some do not; differences in water temperature may also affect the time of year you choose to travel. Visiting the Galapagos at different times of year may also affect what wildlife you'll see.
Our advice? We strongly recommend you call and speak to an expert on 020 7337 9010 to discuss the right options for you. Alternatively click on Enquire Now or click here to read more about the boats we've handpicked to give you the best possible Galapagos cruise experience.
For some, such as families travelling with smaller children, land-based stays may be a better option than a cruise. Staying on one of the islands, such as at the Galapagos Safari Camp on Santa Cruz, also works very well combined with a few days on a boat; some may prefer to stay on land for the duration of their trip.
