Get to know the highlights of Galápagos with this Naturalist cruise on board the beautiful Coral I & II! On this Expedition Cruise, you will discover the incredible wildlife of the Galápagos Islands: On North Seymour, an incredible hike and snorkeling session awaits you. This island is the archipelago condensed into very little space, and you'll be able to see almost all the iconic Galápagos species in just a few hours. On San Cristóbal, you will be able to snorkel in crystal clear waters, relax with sea lions on pristine white sand beaches and learn more about the evolution of giant tortoises. During your time on Santa Cruz, you will have the chance to observe the famous Galápagos Giant Tortoises in the wild and learn more about the preservation and scientific study of these amazing animals. Your visit to Santa Fe will involve a beautiful short hike, during which you can observe Galápagos Hawks, Darwin's Finches, Galápagos Mockingbirds. and Galápagos Sea Lions. A walk across South Plaza is one of the best visitor experiences in the Galápagos thanks to the large number of species living in such a small area.

Your ship: Coral I & II

Unique amongst the Galápagos fleet, these "twins" were the first to operate in this manner. Other firsts we've discovered - the first boats with an on-board barbecue, and the first with solar-powered jacuzzi! Your captains are Javier and Fabian, and in talking with the crew, we discovered that 95% of them have been working on the Corals for 10 years or more - a real sign of quality and smooth running. The Coral twins have an unrivalled reputation for operating sustainably, and we've found out that their reclamation, recycling and waste processing systems exceed the National Park Requirements. … Read more about Coral I & II

Food & Drinks

The food on our Galapágos Cruises is among the very best you will find in South America. Most of the on-board chefs are internationally trained and have prior experience working in the best hotels and restaurants in Ecuador and indeed around the world.

You can expect a first-class selection of food, including a good variety of fresh fruits and vegetables, locally sourced poultry and fish/seafood, rice and pasta dishes. Most boats will always include some typical Ecuadorian dishes on the menu during your cruise. If you have specific dietary requirements then these can usually be accommodated by the chef providing you have given advance notice. Please make sure you tell us about any allergies or dietary requirements you have at the time you book with us. If you leave it until you arrive at the dockside, then it may well be impossible to accommodate your needs.

Most boats serve a range of options at meal times in a relaxed buffet-style. At the first class and luxury end of the market, some boats have more formal dining where you will be served at your seat. However the atmosphere is always relaxed on board our cruises, and never stuffy or formal.

Amazing trip to the Galapagos Galapatours website is easy to use and very informative. Our point of contact was Thomas who was very helpful. There was a mix-up with our flight to the Galapagos Island when Thomas was informed he took the necessary steps to ensure that the flight was changed. Our cruise was on the Coral II. The boat was great, the cabins were clean, and the bed was very comfortable. Delicious food, great staff and great guides. We loved the visits to the different islands and daily snorkeling and saw different animals/birds/sealife every day. Definitely will recommend Galapatours and this particular ship to our friends.

Spectacular cruise with many surprises We had a spectacular time. We went on a 7 night tour. I wouldn't go on anything shorter to see the variety of life on the different Islands. The Coral I has 36 passengers , the Coral II 20. They won't guarantee which boat you will go on. They usually travel together but the Coral II was in dry dock when we went. Being on this size boat gets you into places where the bigger boats aren't aloud.So only a total of 36 people split in 2 groups. My upper deck cabin had 2 single beds, a bathroom, and opened to a walk way. I would recommend this size. The cheaper cabins are smaller and open on to a inside corridor. My Sister an husband who sail liked them. The food was good served buffet style. More than enough food 3 times a day. The best was the bar-b-que on the tip deck. The staff was great especially Mosquito and Alex. One thing I liked is that an announcement would come over the speakers to give you time to get ready for the activities(getting up, eating, activities) We had two hikes a day( easy, stop a lot) but wear good shoes and walking sticks are available when need to walk over the lava fields. Also 1 -2 snorkels a day. A typical day is get up 7 am eat breakfast, go for a hike come back, snorkel, eat lunch, siesta,hike, snacks , drink, dinner, Itinerary, bed. You can participate in as much or little as you want. Everyday there was a new surprise.We saw Orcas, Minke whales, Galapagos sharks, penguins, blue footed boobies, & Iguanas to name only a few. I traveled with my husband,27 yo sons,& sister & husband

Spektakuläre Kreuzfahrt mit vielen Überraschungen Es war eine sehr schöne Zeit auf der Coral. Wir waren auf einer 8-Tages Fahrt, ich glaube kürzer wäre für uns nicht in Frage gekommen, man schafft es schließlich nicht jedes Jahr auf diese Inseln. Welches Schiff man von den beiden Corals bekommen, bleibt eine Überraschung. Die Coral I und II sind sowieso zusammen unterwegs. Die Corals haben uns in Ecken gebracht, wo größere Schiffe nicht hinkommen konnten. Die 36 Passagiere wurde bei Ausflügen in zwei Gruppen aufgeteilt. Das Essen wurde im Buffet-Stil serviert. Es war mehr als genug für alle. Am meisten hat uns das BBQ gefallen. Die Besatzung war spitze! Vor allem Alex und Mosquito. Ich fand es großartig, dass durch Lautsprecher angekündigt wurde, wann es wohin gehen wird. An einem tag gab es zwei Wanderungen, dafür empfehle ich gute Schuhe dabei zu haben. Schnorchel trips gab es auch. Man kann an so viel oder so wenig wie man möchte teilnehmen. Jeden Tag erwarteten uns neue Überraschungen. Wir sahen Orcas, Wale, Galapagos Haie, Pinguine, Blaufußtölpel und Echsen (das war nur der Anfang). Wir waren zwei Familien und reisten zusammen auf der Coral.

Perfect boat size, perfect trip I don't even know where to start. The crew of Coral I, made this short cruise of 8 days an unforgettable experience. The food was delicious, the cabins comfortable and the service unparalleled. Most importantly, however, our two guides made this probably the nicest vacation we have had in... ever? Thank you, Benno and Galapatours, for the great customer service and making the reservation process so seemless!

Perfekte Schiffsgröße, perfekte Kreuzfahrt Ich weiß gar nicht wo ich anfangen soll. Die Besatzung auf der Coral machte diese 8-Tages Tour zu eine, unvergesslichen Erlebnis für mich. Das Essen war köstlich, die Kabinen gemütlich und der Service hervorragend. Am wichtigsten zu erwähnen ist jedoch, dass unsere 2 Naturführer an Bord diesen Urlaub zum besten Urlaub machen. So viel Wissen und Begeisterung steckt an. Vielen Dank an Benno und Galapatours für die tolle Betreuung und Unterstützung! !
