Galapatours: About Us

World Leader in Galápagos Cruises

Our passion

If you're looking for a Galápagos Cruise, you will have quickly noticed how difficult it is to find out which ships offer spaces for a given date and price range. At Galapatours, we host the only independent database of all 82 approved Galápagos cruise ships, bringing together every departure date and every route, with daily updates on availability and pricing.

This means, if you're looking for a Galápagos Cruise, you can filter through all departures - by date, cruise length, price or even by the islands or animals you will see, and find your perfect cruise in just a few simple steps.

Meet Benno, the founder of Galapatours. When Benno first traveled to Galápagos in 2016, he came in order to organize a photo- and video shoot for a South America travel agency. Benno quickly noticed that the more interesting and pristine Galápagos Islands cannot be discovered with day tours, based off a hotel. The only way to discover these remote islands (Genovesa, North Isabela, Española etc.) was and is on board of a multiday Galápagos Cruises. He was surprised, however, to find out that there was not a single webpage to list all the ships, their sailing dates, routes, available cabins and prices! A business idea was born.

Immediately after founding Galapatours, Benno moved to the Galápagos and started personally exploring the whole archipelago, building long-lasting relations with the shipowners, who are our partners (and friends in many cases) to this day. Today, what started as a crazy business idea, has become arguably the world's most complete booking platform for Galápagos Cruises.
