What is the best time of year for a 7 day Galapagos cruise?

A 7 day Galapagos 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 Galapagos and the cost and time spent. Note that some of our week-long cruises are 7 days, but there are also 8 day Galapagos cruises available, depending on itinerary and when your chosen boat returns to port to drop off passengers and take on new ones.

The wonderful thing about being on the equator is it makes the Galapagos a truly year-round destination. There is no best time to visit Galapagos, nor is there a worst time to visit Galapagos! Whenever you travel you will be able to enjoy stunning, unspoilt landscapes, remarkable and unique animals, and enjoy great hospitality and a wonderful experience on your cruise.

If there are particular species you really want to see, our expert Galapagos travel advisors can help you. Their knowledge of the islands is first-rate, and they will be able to guide you as to the best time of year to see the creatures you are interested in. The wonder mating dances of the Blue-Footed Booby are always popular! Give our team a call or live chat today for help in planning your 7 day Galapagos cruise.

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 Galapagos cruise between December and May will coincide with the warmest water temperatures, making for an amazing experience swimming with Galapagos sea lions and marine iguanas.

What classes of ship are available for a 7 day Galapagos cruise?

Almost all the vessels in our Galapagos fleet offer itineraries that include a 7 day Galapagos cruise - also known as an 8 day Galapagos cruise or a 1 week cruise. You will have a wide choice across all the ship classes and types, meaning a 7 day Galapagos cruise is perfect whatever your budget.

Our luxury and first-class vessels will provide you with an extravagant Galapagos cruise experience, with stunning cabins, staterooms and suites, remarkable facilities and the highest standards of cuisine and guest service.

A mid-range week long cruise in Galapagos 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 Galapagos cruise.

Our budget Galagos cruises are perfect for travellers who want all of their experience to be about the Galapagos islands, and who are not too worried about their ship as part of the experience. All our budget class ships are comfortable, well-maintained and safe, but they will have small cabins, usually with bunk beds, and minimal additional facilities and small public spaces. Nevertheless, they give the budget-conscious traveler a stunning Galapagos experience.
