When it comes to the world-famous Galapagos Islands, there’s no doubt that a cruise is the very best way to explore the beauty of the unique wildlife and islands of the archipelago. However, with so many ships, routes and highlights it is hard to find the perfect trip.
Let us help you: We host the only independent database of all 78 approved Galapagos cruise ships. We bring together every departure date and every route, with daily updates on availability and pricing. We work directly with the owners and operators, which means we can find the very best prices on Galapagos cruises. If you’re planning to visit Galapagos, our unique system lets you find the perfect cruise easily thanks to the ability to filter all Galapagos cruises by date, cruise length, price - or even by the animals or visitor sites you can encounter! With Galapatours, you can find your dream trip to the Galapagos in just a few simple steps.
Choose from four-day, five-day or eight-day cruises - or combine itineraries to create a stunning “trip of a lifetime” two-week Galapagos experience. The vast majority of Galapagos cruise ships are small and exclusive motor yachts or catamarans that can only accommodate a maximum of 16 passengers, along with your guide and ship’s crew.
All of our Galapagos cruises allow you to explore multiple islands and experience their wide variety of flora, fauna and landscapes. As well as many shore excursions, you can enjoy water-based exploring through snorkeling, swimming or kayaking. Your guide will brief you every day on what you can expect to see, and you will be enjoying excursions and activities from morning until evening. After a busy day, you can swap stories with like-minded travelers in the comfort of your luxury Galapagos yacht over drinks and gourmet-quality meals.

My partner and I had the most wonderful first vacation experience together. Luis, our host on the boat, was extremely energetic and very entertaining. The tour guides, Victor and Enrique, were also fabulous. It was amazing how much experience they had on the history and science behind Galapagos.
All the islands we visited were amazing. The most spectacular views we've ever seen.
Our favorite was Rabida Island where the sand was red from the high iron levels.
My partner, who doesn't know how to swim, was eager to jump into the clear ocean to snorkel! With the help of a life vest of course.
The other crew members who steered the dingys were also excellent in keeping watch, making sure the group stays together in the ocean.
We got a chance to snorkel and swim with sea turtles, sea lions, sharks, beautiful colorful fish, and even a penguin!
Thank you for all your help in booking this magical vacation! The only regret I have is not staying longer!!
