Located over 600 miles from the Ecuadorian mainland, the Galapagos Islands consist of 13 major islands, 5 of which are inhabited. The animals that inhabit this secluded archipelago, and the science surrounding them, have long drawn the attention of both scientists and tourists alike. The Galapagos Islands are pristine: no other place on earth is as unspoiled by introduced and invasive species. You can truly get close to the wildlife. Because the islands were isolated for so long, Galapagos wildlife never developed a fear of humans.

Great Global Adventures partners with over 15 yachts in the Galapagos Islands. Groups can choose from shorter itineraries, 4 days/ 3 nights up to cruises that run for 8 days/ 7 nights. Daily, Naturalist-led, excursions are the highlight of the cruises as guests will kayak on tranquil bays of turquoise waters, snorkel with colorful marine wildlife, and trek through moon-like volcanic landscapes.

This is small boat cruising at its finest, with vessels ranging from 6-50 cabins. Not only will guests be awed by the daily excursions, they will also enjoy fabulous meals and informative lectures delivered by an on-ship naturalist. And because these yachts are smaller in size, they are perfect for charters.
