Get to know the highlights of Galápagos with this Naturalist cruise on board the beautiful Nemo III! On this Expedition Cruise, you will discover the incredible wildlife of the Galápagos Islands: Fernandina, the youngest island, will blow your mind with its rugged lava landscapes. The youngest island in the archipelago, it is still being formed by volcanic eruptions and makes for a wonderful, otherworldly contrast to the other islands. On Genovesa, breathtaking dinghy rides, stunning views and close encounters with the most iconic birds of the Archipelago await you. Blue-footed Boobies, Red-footed Boobies, Nazca Boobies and many more species can be seen here. Isabela, the biggest of all islands in the Galápagos, offers you fantastic hikes, views and arguably some of the best snorkeling spots in the Archipelago. 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. On Santiago, an island formerly inhabited by pirates, you will be able to enjoy hikes and dinghy rides.

Your ship: Nemo III

The Nemo III is a true sailing catamaran owned and operated by a family business who have been sailing the Galápagos waters since 1985. This is a perfect way to see the islands in a vessel purpose-made for stable, fast journeys under sail or engine.

Nemo III was renovated in 2016 to a very high standard, and now boasts some of the best accommodation in her class. With a maximum of only 16 guest on board at a time, she has the space to be able to offer eight superior cabins. All of them are finished in beautiful natural wood giving them a very traditional feel, and yet they all have individual … Read more about Nemo III

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 experience Galapagos islands are the most beautiful place I have ever visit in my life in terms of nature. We spent 5 days in the NEMO III catamaran and it was truly fantastic. We can only say good things about it. As for activities, snorkeling was the best part of it. We recommend to anyone who love nature to visit this place.

Es war fantastisch Wir sind an Bord der Nemo III durch das Galapagos Archipel gereist und es war fatastisch! Die Gourmet-Küche versorgte uns regelmäßig mit Energie für unsere Wander- und Schnorcheltouren. Unser Naturreiseführer Peter ist wahrscheinlich einer der besten in der Gegend und die Crew, vor allem Jim, gab uns immer ein Gefühl des Willkommenseins. Es fiel uns sehr schwer zu gehen. Die Tierarten, die wir gesehen haben, waren phänomenal. Ich plane eine weitere Kreuzfahrt mit meiner Familie für nächstes Jahr und auch diese wird an Bord der Nemo III sein. Quelle:
