A typical cruise week offers great opportunities to go kayaking around secluded coves, shores, mangrove estuaries and beautiful beaches. Galapagos penguins, flightless cormorants, sea lions and many other animals can be seen from up-close on a kayak and even as they swim!
During each day of your Galapagos cruise you will have two expeditions to a visiting point on a specific island where you will be able to walk and hike on beaches, lava fields, alongside cliffs and around mangrove estuaries. Our walks and hikes include wildlife encounters, scenic views and detailed lectures and explanations from your naturalist guide on many issues concerning the islands. This activity is great to get amazing shots of wildlife from up-close.
You will be offered the opportunity to go snorkeling almost every day at various snorkeling sites around the archipelago. You will have the chance to snorkel with playful sea lions, marine iguanas, green sea turtles and many other wonderful creatures. For non-divers, this is an incredible way to get a glimpse of the marine.
The group, of up to 9 guests per zodiac, is taken for a ride alongside cliffs and shores, secluded coves and beautiful mangrove estuaries. This activity is great to see volcanic formations as well as shore birds from up-close. In the mangrove estuaries it is very common to see green sea turtles mating, golden & eagle rays and sleeping reef sharks! This activity provides various chances to get some great photographs of marine creatures from up close!
Scuba diving is offered as an additional activity for those guests who are looking to take a peek at the underwater world of the Galapagos. On the day your yacht visits the port town of Puerto Ayora, you can choose to go on a day diving trip instead of the visit planned for that day. If you do not want to miss the activities planned for the day at Port, you can also choose to go diving either by arriving a couple of days before the start of your cruise or by staying on the islands a couple of days after the cruise. Please inquire with us for more information on our Galapagos diving adventures.
For bird lovers, the Galapagos Islands offer you the opportunity of seeing shore birds, water birds, sea birds and land birds daily. Some of these birds appear to be taken out of a fiction book. And best of all, because they are unafraid of humans, you don’t need big lenses to get amazing shots. Birdlife in Galapagos literally will pose for the perfect shot.
Whale spotting and snorkeling with wild dolphins is quite common in our Galapagos cruises. During the longer navigations, you may even see dolphins riding the waves in front of your yacht. Get ready for some spectacular encounters with Galapagos’ best sea mammals.
