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.

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.

We had a fabulous time and the catamaran exceeded our expections Our family of 16, ages 10-77, has just returned from a week aboard the Galaxy II. We had a fabulous time and the catamaran exceeded our expections. All of us were sad when the visit was over. The entire crew worked very hard to care for us, their guests. The food was abundant and delicious. Our rooms were refreshed and clean. Our naturalist guide, Carlos Palma, was superb. He was relaxed, fun, kept us moving without rushing us and took every opportunity to make sure we saw the animals and geography of the western islands. Any person or group would be fortunate to have him as a guide. There were many special moments on the cruise. Two whales, a sperm and a fin. A visit from Neptune, compliments of the crew when we crossed the equator. Delicious juices and treats after each snorkel or land visit. A game of charades with some of the crew participating. Swimming with turtles, penguins, rays. Having the frigate birds catch the draft of Galaxy II. Watching pelicans and boobies dive for dinner. Beautiful beaches and stark lava fields. And, when not watching all of this there were wonderful moments to read or watch spectacular sunsets. The crew of the Galaxy II was excellent. I wish I could name and compliment them each. They deserve it. We would love to return, aboard the Galaxy II with the same crew and the same naturalist to tour the rest of the islands in the future. May it be !
