Luxury Hotels & Cruises in the Galapagos Islands

Exploring the beautiful islands of the Galapagos is easy - there is a vast range of boats, from smaller sailing boats to larger cruise boats, with various routes, facilities and activities on offer. The Exsus team have detailed knowledge and personal experience of the many luxury boats which tour the Galapagos, and have handpicked the best ones to help you choose which Galapagos cruise is right for you. Just contact us to find out more.

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