Overview & Highlights

From colonial Quito, fly onwards to enjoy a cruise around some of Ecuador's majestic Galápagos Islands. You'll explore from a small, eco-conscious motor cruiser, which offers great value and excellent service in the upper-mid range category.

Arrive in Quito and spend a couple of days exploring Ecuador’s fascinating highland capital, before continuing on to the wildlife wonders of the Galápagos Islands. The archipelago is serviced by a fantastic range of vessels, all catering for slightly different price points, durations and requirements, so our expert team will help you decide which one is right for you.

The prices and departures shown here are for the ‘Galápagos Treasure’, which is one of our most popular vessels and offers fresh, modern and spacious accommodation at a great price. The Treasure operates three different itineraries of varying length, all visiting different regions, on different dates. Each of the island’s has its own unique sense of wonder, but over the course of most voyages, passengers should get to see the majority, if not all, of the most iconic species. The journey included here is a 5-day, 4-night cruise.

Our Expert's Opinion

The Galápagos Islands are a remarkable destination on their own, so we created a highlights holiday that captures the essence of the islands in less than two weeks. I am particularly fond of the boats we've chosen for this itinerary. They offer excellent value and provide an intimate and friendly atmosphere onboard. Families will find this option especially appealing, as there are specific departures during school holidays exclusively for families with children.
