Within this small archipelago, each of the Galapagos islands is uniquely diverse. Some have shorelines draped in mangroves, others are rugged volcanic outcrops jutting defiantly from the sea. You won’t see the same distribution of wildlife on any two islands, and each has its own history, both geologic and otherwise. See what’s in store on each of the exciting stops on your itinerary.
The best way to immerse yourself in a Galapagos experience is by cruising between the enchanted islands. Our luxury Galapagos voyages leave the crowds behind and avoid long periods at sea. Instead, we deliver cruises for active travelers with an interest in the landscapes and wildlife of these unique islands. For those seeking wild destinations and exceptional onboard comforts; who appreciate a balance of awesome adventure and refined relaxation.
Dr. Ellen Prager, marine scientist and author, has partnered with us for many years. She’s an expert in the wildlife and ecosystems of the Galapagos Islands. From assisting with onboard programming to excursion planning, she and a team of expert naturalists play a key role in bringing your Galapagos vacation to life—above and below the water.
OUR STEWARDSHIP PROGRAMS
From the robust Ecuadorian coffee to the fresh fare at every meal, almost everything on the menu was grown, raised or caught right here on these islands. We take all those incredible, fresh ingredients and prepare a daily feast full of local flare and flavor. Every menu is crafted by our Michelin®-starred chef, and every menu takes you a bit further into becoming one with this enchanting destination and unique culture.
We don’t just love visiting the Galapagos—we are passionate about preserving it. We’ve done so much to leave these islands virtually untouched that Ecuador’s Secretary of Tourism holds Celebrity Cruises® as the standard of excellence for reducing our carbon footprint. Your entire Galapagos experience practices the highest levels of environmental stewardship. We’re committed to improving the quality of life for the residents of the Galapagos Islands and ensuring future generations get to experience this magical place just as you get to today.
A Lifetime of Memories
Start the day with a leisurely breakfast, the perfect combination of coffee and fresh air. Then, get suited up with wetsuits for the day’s adventures. Get comfortably seated in your Zodiac for your morning’s commute to your first island where you’ll find yourself surrounded by hundreds of marine iguanas, blue-footed boobies, and so much more. Relax at the beach, snorkel, or take in a guided hike as you get to know the incredible habitants of this island up close.
Exploring works up an appetite. Return to the ship for a freshly-prepared lunch as you recall the morning’s adventure. As you dine, your ship gently moves to your next island destination. After lunch, suit back up, hop into your Zodiac and get ready for another afternoon of excursions. From white sand beaches to black fields of lava flows, each island presents unique discoveries.
EveningAs the evening sun begins to lower, meet at the bar to unwind and talk with fellow explorers about your experiences. Take in a briefing about what the next day holds before settling down for a gourmet dinner, full of fresh seafood and incredible local flavors. Relax, and get ready to rest up in the haven of your room for tomorrow’s adventures.
While the animals of the Galapagos Islands get the glory, the evolution and adaptation of plant life here is equally important. Check out the beautiful lava Cactus, which only grows on barren lava fields. The Prickly Pear Cactus found only on these islands. And, the magnificent Scalesia, which grows up to sixty feet tall.
Since the animals here don’t fear humans, you can truly get up close and personal, looking into the eyes of a Galapagos land iguana, and walking among penguins – the only penguin species north of the equator. Here, you’ll discover creatures whose very existence forms the basis for one of the most famous scientific theories in history.
Get ready for the snorkel experience of a lifetime. Here you’ll swim beside giant sea turtles and even friendly and curious sea lions. They welcome you and swim along as if you’re already part of the family.
You really haven’t vacationed until you’ve hung out with a blue-footed booby, stood before an oyster catcher, and marveled at a magnificent frigatebird. Not to mention “Darwin’s Finches” – more than 13 different finch species that have adapted to different areas of the island.
For those eager to share their love of the natural world with their family, our Galapagos expeditions are designed to provide a safe and rewarding experience for children and adults.
We ensure your family’s comfort and safety even in the most remote locations by piloting only the best cruise ships of their class, and utilizing the most modern and well-equipped ground transport available. And with our varied itineraries, passengers of all ages will enjoy an incredible vacation experience in the Galapagos.
