The Galapagos Islands are one of the world’s premier nature travel destinations, and deservedly so: there may be no better place on the planet for close-up encounters with wildlife than this remote archipelago that’s home to an assortment of unique and gentle creatures.

Highlights


• Guided Hikes

• Wildlife Observation

• Birdwatching

• Photography & Filming

• Visit a breeding project & Visitor centre

• Dry & wet landings

• Inflatable dinghy rides

• Snorkelling

• Relaxing

Arrival at Seymour Ecological Airport and transfer in. You will have to pay your Galapagos National Park entrance fee and your luggage will be inspected. North Seymour is another highlight of your cruise. In the archipelago’s most extensive seabird breeding colony you can walk a very short distance from frigatebirds and blue-footed boobies.
This tiny volcano islet is just recently born out of fire. Enter its wild romantic setting of spatter cones and craters, and see the most famous panorama of the Galapagos. James Bay (Santiago) was where Charles Darwin spent most of his time whilst on the Galapagos. Espumilla Beach has been revived as an important breeding site for turtles. At nearby Buccaneer Cove you have a great snorkelling opportunity in crystal-clear waters.
Puerto Egas is a historical and favourite site on Santiago for wildlife lovers. The highlight is the outstanding fur seal grottos at the beautiful sculptured coastline. Upon landing on this remarkable red beach a large bachelor colony of Galapagos sea lions will usually welcome you.
The most memorable part of the Charles Darwin Research Station will probably be the successful breeding centre and its celebrity ‘Lonesome George’. Assisted by the naturalist guide and some crew members the dinghy will bring you and your luggage to Baltra, where we will take the airport shuttle. Your guide will accompany you to the check-in counters in the departure hall. You will return home with stunning pictures and unforgettable lifelong memories!

Stable & wide

Meet the two pioneers of the Galapagos: Archipel I & II! These motor catamarans arrived in 2002, and offer stable double hulls, wide decks and large social areas, all of which are near to each other.

Our cosy accommodation

Each catamaran offers eight cabins above the waterline, with two sea-view windows. They also include clean private facilities, hot/cold water, low beds, air-conditioning, and storage space for a comfortable stay.

Spacious social areas

The Archipels have ample social areas that will complement a comfortable stay. Shared with a total of just 16 guests; the lounge, solarium, resting areas & 'Al Fresco' dining area are great choices for you to relax and enjoy the nature that surrounds you.

Greater safety on-board

Safety on-board (and during the programmed activities) is always our highest concern. We have therefore obtained the International Safety Management Certificate of the International Marine Organisation (IMO), carry proper security equipment, and put board regulations and safety instructions.
