On a cruise to the Galapagos Islands with Celebrity Cruises®, be among some of the most exclusive visitors in the world – Celebrity Cruises is the only major cruise line to offer trips to this isolated archipelago. The Galapagos Islands are some of the most unspoilt and inspirational lands anywhere on earth. They are an exotic haven of flora and fauna, and the islands’ wildlife inspired Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution.
Galapagos cruises will make you come face-to-face with some of the rarest animals in the world – there are 1,900 species that cannot be found anywhere else. Amongst the unique creatures are the giant Galapagos tortoises, iguanas and sea turtles. Whether relaxing on board your Celebrity Cruise ship or exploring this iconic environment, a Galapagos cruise is an experience that will stay with you forever.
Exploring the Galapagos Islands in-depth is possible thanks to our range of shore excursions. Leave the first-class comfort of your Celebrity cruise ship at many of the ports of call and undertake a truly unforgettable exploration of the Galapagos Islands. At Cormorant Point in Isla Floreana, travel to the tiny island of Champion to see the rare Floreana Mockingbird, as well as sharks, Spotted Eagle rays, barracuda and sea turtles.
You can also take a scenic cruise along the islands of Isabela and Fernandina, or get the blood pumping with an inland hike and snorkelling from the Black Beach on Isla Santiago.
On each island of the Galapagos archipelago, the interference of humans has been kept to an absolute minimum. See how untouched and unique these islands are with each new stop – in Dragon Hill on the island of Santa Cruz, nesting Land Iguanas have made their home. In the nearby hypersalinic lagoon, see flamingos and other avian species in their natural habitat. Meanwhile, on South Plaza Island, a large number of unique flora and fauna species make for a captivating visit.
On the island of Fernandina, your Galapagos cruise will call at Punta Espinoza, where you will be enthralled by the penguins leaping from rocks and into the cobalt waters. This is a place of colour and wonder, where vibrant wildlife dances among the rocks and mangroves. See the native marine iguanas feeding at close range – a rare sight.
Similarly entrancing is the North Seymour Island, where flocks of bloated-breasted frigate birds and flashes of colour as Blue-footed Boobies come to take a closer look at you.
