Galapagos Islands cruises

Marooned from mainland Ecuador, the Galapagos Islands are a wildlife paradise that’s been allowed to blossom with minimal interference from mankind

Now home to throngs of spiky marine iguanas, giant turtles and blue-footed boobies, the islands are a haven for these creatures as well as visiting nature buffs. After all, where else can you laze beach side with a seal or kayak alongside inquisitive penguins? Our Galapagos Islands cruises mean you can see all this archipelago has to offer from the comfort of our well-appointed boats.

Learning to swim in the Galapagos. Be Fearless. Be Intrepid.
