Galapagos Holidays for 2020 and 2021
Each Galapagos holiday we create at Think Galapagos is unique. We don’t try and sell you a holiday, but listen to what you want and then work with you to create a Galapagos holiday that is perfect for you. Be it a birding holiday, a family holiday, a honeymoon or a special birthday trip that offers exceptional wildlife experiences, we will use our decades of experience living and working in Ecuador and Galapagos, and unrivalled network of local contacts to create an exceptional holiday for you.
We passionately believe the ultimate way to experience Galapagos is on board a yacht. Navigating mostly at night between the islands our Galapagos cruises ensure you maximise your wildlife viewing during the day and take you to the best and most pristine islands in the archipelago.

When is the best time to visit Galapagos?
There isn’t really a right answer to this question! Galapagos is a year round destination thanks to its location on the equator and each month has its own highlights. Hopefully this guide to the climate and the wildlife activity in the islands can help you choose.
Probably the best and easiest way, is for you to give us a call and let us know what your key priorities are for your visit, we will be able to guide you as to the best time for you to visit Galapagos.
Galapagos never ceases to amaze and exceed even the highest expectations. It really is a special and unique place, and all the Galapagos cruises we have carefully handpicked to work with really ensure our guests get the very most of their experience.

- Out of this world
Out of this world - far beyond expectations - we couldn’t believe the animals in the Galapagos and how non fussed they are around humans!
Nicola Corrigan, Ocean Spray
- Beyond compare
It’s hard to know how our trip could have been any more enjoyable. No previous experience in our lives comes remotely close enough to compare.
David and Margaret Wilcock, Escorted Group Trip
- Living in a nature documentary
It felt like we were living in a nature documentary, seeing so many unusual and unique species, but also able to observe their natural behaviour.
Dr Kayleigh Wyles, Galaxy
- Beyond our wildest expectations
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.
Maureen & Robert Macpherson, Beagle
The snorkelling was like nothing I had ever experienced - to be so close to turtles, sharks, sea lions and even sunfish really was incredible...quite possibly the best holiday we have ever had.
Jackie Carter, Beluga
- Thrill of swimming with sea lions
How do you explain the thrill of swimming with sea lions or the beauty and majesty of the islands and animals; we keep trying.
Alison & Graham Cartwright, Galaxy II
Extend your cruise in Galapagos
Three islands in Galapagos have a permanent human population, Santa Cruz, Isabela and San Cristobal. It is possible to extend your Galapagos cruise here with a stay in a hotel or tented camp. Each island has its own special mix of Galapagos wildlife and activities, from scuba diving with hammerhead sharks, to exploring lava tubes, to snorkelling with turtles, to spending the day enjoying the company of giant tortoises in the wild. Here is some information about these three islands along with details of our handpicked hotels and favourite activities.
