Galapagos Yacht Cruises

For your visit to the Galapagos islands, we feel a cruise is the best option to make the most of your stay. Cruises generally visit the more remote and most pristine islands, places which land based tours cannot visit, making for a truly unforgettable experience in the islands. Eos Ecuador offers those yachts we feel offer the best value in their categories, taking into account reputation, service and guide quality, itineraries, maintenance, and environmental and social responsibility. Most of the yachts we sell carry 16 passengers or fewer; we suggest yachts of this size for a more intimate and personal experience in the islands.

All yachts are classified according to quality and comfort; the most basic are tourist class (which we do not recommend); the next level is tourist superior, then first class, then luxury. We classify yachts based on the classification given by the operators; there is often a significant difference between yachts in the same class, but we are happy to answer any specific questions about any yacht. Prices vary greatly both between classes and within classes, and can depend on the specific date you wish to travel; promotions often exist for specific dates on specific yachts.

Most cruises visit two locations per day (except the first and last days) with various visits and activities at each site, typically including hikes and chances to swim and snorkel each day. Other activities are also included on many cruises, such as visits to interpretation centers and other key sities on land and on some yachts chances to kayak. All cruises include nearly everything during your tour: food, activities, guide, and internal transportation. The only additional costs are for snorkeling equipment (included on some tours), wetsuit rental if desired, sodas and alcoholic beverages, tips, and of course your flights to and from the Galapagos Islands, National Park entry fees and your INGALA migration card.
