A mid-range week long cruise in Galápagos provides an ideal balance between cost and facilities, giving you a very comfortable experience with luxurious touches at a reasonable price. This is one of our most popular options for an 8 day Galápagos cruise.
Our budget Galagos cruises are perfect for travellers who want all of their experience to be about the Galápagos islands, and who are not too worried about their ship as part of the experience.

Nevertheless, they give the budget-conscious traveler a stunning Galápagos experience.

What is the best time of year for a 7 day Galapagos cruise?
A 7 day Galápagos cruise is one of the most popular options. We believe that taking a one week cruise is a great balance between seeing enough to get a real flavor and understanding of the Galápagos and the cost and time spent. Note that some of our week-long cruises are 7 days, but there are also 8 day Galápagos cruises available, depending on itinerary and when your chosen boat returns to port to drop off passengers and take on new ones.

If you are prone to seasickness, then we'd recommend you avoid September, as this often coincides with larger ocean swells as the cold water currents move towards the islands. If you already have your sea legs then this can be a good time to travel as you may have a wider choice as some travellers will be avoiding this period.
If you are a keen snorkeler, a 7 day Galápagos cruise between December and May will coincide with the warmest water temperatures, making for an amazing experience swimming with Galápagos sea lions and marine iguanas.
