Luxury Galapagos Holidays & Cruises
The Galapagos Islands offer the ultimate wildlife holiday or family adventure, renowned worldwide for their stunning array of land and marine life. Snorkel with penguins and sea lions, and get close to some of the most fascinating species on earth: from the marine iguana and the playful blue footed booby to the magnificent and iconic giant tortoise, Galapagos holidays offer the world’s most amazing and unique wildlife experiences.
One of the first UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the Galapagos can be visited year round, owing to their proximity to the equator. A stay here or a luxury cruise around the islands on a boat, yacht or catamaran combines perfectly with a few days in colourful Ecuador.
The Exsus team have 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 have affected the itineraries that each boat follows, meaning that routes and the duration of routes vary widely.
As well as following different routes, smaller boats tend to afford guests a higher level of flexibility on activities. The larger boats, on the other hand, 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. It’s worth bearing in mind generally that the time of year you visit the Galapagos will affect what wildlife you'll see.

For some, such as families travelling with smaller children, land-based stays may be a better option than a cruise for your Galapagos holiday. Our Galapagos Safari Camp on Santa Cruz is an amazing way to experience the Galapagos’ unique wildlife without taking to the seas, but also works very well combined with a few days on a boat.
