Get to know the highlights of Galápagos with this Naturalist cruise on board the beautiful Tip Top II! 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 spent on Rábida, you will have the opportunity to watch wild Flamingos and walk on a blood-red sandy beach. 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: Tip Top II

This popular motor catamaran is a popular choice for those looking for the increased stability that twin hull boats can provide whilst still wanting a delightful ambience and luxury accommodation. Tip Top is also one of the faster boats in the Galápagos with a true 12 knots cruise speed that means you can spend more time on your excursions and adventures, and less time travelling between them. Captain Jimmy has been at the helm for 5 years, and a professional sailor for over 12. We could talk with Jimmy for hours (and we did). Listening to this proud father of two, it's soon obvious that ther … Read more about Tip Top II

Food & Drinks

Wellington, the wonderful chef, delights in sharing recipes with guests and will show you how to prepare the very best ceviche. The food on board is a stunning blend of Ecuadorian specialities and world cuisines, including French and Italian dishes - a truly cosmopolitan dining experience! From your waiter Luis, to deckhand Mario and first officer David, the entire crew are welcoming, friendly and helpful and everyone goes out of their way to make your cruise a special memory.

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. The Tip Top II 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.

The trip was beyond magical! The snorkeling near Chinese hat and also the beach walk at the Lobos island was breathtaking. What a trip! It was very well planned with quality snacks and meals provided throughout.

Finally got to complete our trip to the Galapagos Islands which was canceled days before we were to set off in March of 2020 due to the Covid pandemic. Finally, two years later we were ready to set off again and Galapatours were very helpful in working with us and our needs to rescheduling our cruise itinerary. All in all it was well worth the wait as we got to experience nature and the unique wildlife that you will never see anywhere else in the world. What a trip
