Get to know the highlights of Galápagos with this Naturalist cruise on board the beautiful Integrity! On this Expedition Cruise, you will discover the incredible wildlife of the Galápagos Islands: On Española, the oldest and arguably the greenest of the Galápagos Islands, incredible hikes await. You will get to see many endemic species, including the Española Mocking Bird, the Española Lava Lizard, and, hopefully, the famous Waved Albatross. 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. During your time spent on Rábida, you will have the opportunity to watch wild Flamingos and walk on a blood-red sandy beach. 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. On Santiago, an island formerly inhabited by pirates, you will be able to enjoy hikes and dinghy rides. 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.

The word “stunning” is used a lot to describe Galápagos cruise yachts, but in this case, we believe it’s entirely justified. This 141 ft long beauty is one of our favorites, and her owner Rolf is justifiably proud of her. He insists that everything is perfect for every guest, and his crew are among the highest-rated in the Galápagos fleet.

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.

Superb cruise experience Superb in every way possible. We chose this yacht based on the reputation of the guides. We were referred by two Cambridge scholars who set a very high bar indeed. Our guide went above our already high expectations for the natural history content and his educational background, however we were equaled delighted with the comfort, safety (we even got a tour of the spotless engine room) and cuisine provided each day. Very memorable trip that we would even consider repeating. Source: Ship operator

Best trip ever The trip was exceptional. I loved it and hope I can go back. I learned so much and it was breathtaking. That itinerary, boat, crew, and naturalist were all amazing. For your part, you and everything your organized were perfect. You made everything so easy for us. The entire trip went off without a hitch. We never had to worry about anything because there was always someone there to meet us/help us/guide us/drive us. We enjoyed both of the Quito tours. Catherine, our guide, was terrific and very knowledgeable. Also, the Cumbaya day, during our layover, was lovely and I appreciate that wonderful suggestion. We went for a walk in the ecological park and then had a delicious farewell dinner. My heartfelt thanks again. Everyone appreciated all you did for us. Source: goo.gl/BX4bdH

Loved every detail about this yacht Loved every detail about this yacht- We selected it for several reason. My very nervous traveling companion researched the safety record- impeccable for this company, the high educational qualifications required for their guides and the yacht is fully stabilized too. All cabins were bigger and had large picture windows, very spacious salon and even a jacuzzi too! We were surprised by all the amenities provided, including a wet suit fitting before we boarded to make sure everyone had a perfect fit- how thoughtful. Source: ship operator

Best trip ever Chartering the INTEGRITY was the best trip our family has ever had- period! The cruise with our outstanding naturalist was perfect for everyone from my 79 year old father to my 10 year old twins. We debated over the trip cost until we really did our research- we got MORE than what we paid for- worth every dollar spent! Source: ship operator

Fabulous journey The Galapagos trip was amazing. The Integrity is a beautiful boat and its crew and naturalist are professional, friendly and knowledgeable. The service through out the trip was flawless. The itinerary was a perfect mix of relaxation, education and adventure, with just the perfect amount of security and safety provided by the Integrity crew. I would recommend the eight day itinerary and the Integrity to all our friends. Source: goo.gl/seb5na
