Get to know the highlights of Galápagos with this Naturalist cruise on board the beautiful Cormorant! 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. 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. 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. 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.

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.

An unforgettable holiday Thank you Galapatours for making this dream holiday come true! My wife and I spent 8 days on the Cormorant and are still raving on about how great this holiday was! We absolutely loved the snorkeling with the sea lion cub, this is going to be a memory we will both take to the grave with us! Thanks again, John and Mary

George is the best guide! Just back from an 8 day cruise aboard the Cormorant. Had a fantastic time. The Galapagos islands are truly a once in a lifetime experience. George(otherwise known as Lonesome George) our naturalist was amazing and we can only speak highly off all the staff on board.

George ist der beste Guide! Wir kommen gerade von unserer 8 Tages Fahrt auf der Cormorant und hatten eine tolle Zeit. Die Galapagos Inseln sind wahrhaftig ein einmaliges Erlebnis. George, unser Naturführer, wusste über alles bescheid und auch die restliche Besatzung kann man nur loben!
