Itinerary

The Cormorant has two excellent 8 day itineraries as well as strong 4 and 5 day options.   In terms of which itinerary of the A or B options we think is the stronger  - they are both equally good! However if you have a particular interest in birds or reptiles and depending on the time of year of your visit, one could have the edge over the other – but we can help advise on this.

Itinerary A - 8 daysItinerary A - 8 days

In this cruise you will be visiting the central and southern part of the Galapagos which includes a great mixture of Galapagos wildlife, a variety of geologically fascinating landscapes, unspoiled white beaches, great snorkelling dramatic cliff edges teeming with seabirds and the beautiful island of Espanola with the Waved Albatross (late March – November).
