Each year many travelers come to the Galapagos Islands to see the amazing wildlife and geological formations. Pure! Ecuador can coordinate your special requests and elevate your cruising experience with some of the top options to explore the stunning islands.
The Galapagos Islands, a volcanic archipelago of 13 major islands, is just 600 miles west of the coast of Ecuador. You can arrive by plane in Quito or Guayaquil and the next day take a flight to the main islands of Baltra or San Cristobal. We can also arrange a private flight so you can travel at your own pace.
The options available vary but generally small catamarans can accommodate up to 16 passengers, medium yachts up to 20, and larger yachts up to 100. You may request to have onboard special menus according to your diets, personalized dinner celebrations, special liquors, or drinks. You may also request a specialized guide either by language or by field of study.
Even if you book a charter, just keep in mind that the coordinated visits to each site in the islands are organized by the Galapagos National Park authorities so you may not have as much freedom as when doing a private charter in other destinations around the world. However, this is a protected natural habitat for many species, and all visits need to balance the limits of travelers visiting the islands.
Get that item checked off your bucket list with a once-in-a-lifetime personalized trip to the islands. Contact us for more information and special rates. You may also check our Ecuador entry requirements update on our webpage.
