From scuba diving to hiking and snorkelling or simply relaxing and soaking up your amazing surroundings, we have the trip for you!

Galapagos Day Trips

Whilst a Galapagos cruise on one of our handpicked yachts taking you to the most remote and pristine parts of Galapagos is the principal way for our guests to experience the islands, you can take day trips spending a night or two on one of the inhabited islands of Santa Cruz, San Cristobal or Isabella which makes a great addition to the cruise. Staying in one of our favourite hotels, we have a team of top local Galapagos National Park guides that take great care of our guests.

We will treasure the memories

The Samba was a perfect boat to be on - not too many people but enough to have some fun with the others. A really wonderful holiday we will treasure the memories of for many years to come. Many thanks again for everything.

Thanks for arranging our Ecuador and Galapagos trip. We absolutely loved it. Can’t speak highly enough of your service or the Galapagos. In fact we loved it so much I have described it as our best holiday - and we travel a lot!
Beyond our wildest expectations

We had an absolute ball, falling into our bunks by 9pm each night, exhausted but elated. The crew and naturalists were tireless in their efforts to ensure we had a great time and the wildlife viewings and close encounters were beyond our wildest expectations.
Too many highlights to mention

So many memories and so many photos! There were too many highlights to mention but swimming with sea lions and turtles and getting so close to all the wildlife on the Galapagos are worth a special mention.
Experience of a lifetime

The boat was the best bit for both of us - we were blown away by how nice it was, our guide (we had a guy called Carlos) was brilliant - he pitched the talks and hikes just right and we saw some amazing things… an experience of a lifetime!
