What activities can I do on a Galapagos cruise?

All cruises in Galapagos operate to itineraries that are fixed and approved by the National Park. Most cruises will offer a range of land-based and water-based activities that you will enjoy at various points in your cruise including:

  1. Snorkeling (from ship or beaches)
  2. Panga rides (the local name for the small boats that transfer you from ship to shore, or used to explore the mangroves)
  3. Kayaking
  4. Diving (on ships with diving itineraries)
  5. Land excursions (including hiking trails, visitor centers, drives to inland sites, time relaxing on beaches, etc)
  6. Naturalist presentations. These usually take place every evening - on board the bigger ships also with help of microscopes 

All boats must carry a bilingual, certified, level 3 (the highest level) guide. They will lead you on your excursions, allowing you to learn as much as possible about the unique wildlife and habitats of the Galapagos Islands.
