Discover our Galapagos tours

Embark on a once in a lifetime adventure travelling through the Galapagos Islands on our small group tours. Whether you choose to explore the islands on a land-based trip or take a boat journey around this unique archipelago, your local tour leader will show you all of the popular sights as well as the hidden treasures of the Galapagos Islands. 

The main highlight of our Galapagos Island tours has to be the magnificent array of exotic wildlife. Meet giant tortoise, marine iguana, lizard and snake on the island of Santa Cruz and keep your eyes peeled for Galapagos penguin and sea lion basking in the crystalline turquoise-blue waters on a trip to Tintoreras Island. Uncover vast colonies of red and blue-footed booby birds on our cruise through the North, West and Central Islands or drift south to dive into the azure-blue sea and snorkel with green sea turtle

Frequently asked questions - Galapagos Islands


The Galapagos is a year-round destination where you’ll see different things at each point of the year.

January to May : warm and wet season (average 30C) – better snorkelling visibility, warmer waters and less choppy on the boats. Mating season for many species, nesting season for sea turtles.

June to December : cool season (average 25C) – marine life is much more abundant. Whales start migrating through, it’s nesting season for many marine birds.

A typical day on a Galapagos boat is very busy! Immediately after breakfast there will be a shore excursion, before coming back on board and changing for a snorkel trip. Snacks and juices are provided every time you come back aboard the vessel after an excursion. Lunch is taken aboard the vessel, and there is time for a siesta before the afternoon shore excursion. Occasionally there is also another snorkelling trip in the afternoon. In the evening before or after dinner, the naturalist guide will brief you on the islands to be visited the following day. You are ferried from the yacht to shore via small boats called pangas. Landings are either 'dry' or 'wet', where you may have to wade ashore in shallow water, and the naturalist guide will accompany you during all excursions.

No matter which trip you decide to take, you can expect to see marine iguanas, sea lions (and possibly their pups), land iguanas, blue-footed boobies, finches, giant tortoise and lava lizards. Other wildlife that you may encounter, depending on which islands you visit are: frigatebirds, Galapagos penguins, Galapagos Hawk, sharks, sea turtles, Sally Lightfoot crabs, flightless cormorant and swallow-tailed gulls, among countless other species.
