Cruising the Galapagos Islands

A Galapagos expedition cruise brings many opportunities for close encounters with wildlife. The islands and surrounding waters are quite literally teaming with exotic and colorful creatures that have never learned to fear humans. Bird life is abundant, varied and fearless. You may have to give way as a blue-footed booby crosses your path, or have the opportunity to observe a Galápagos hawk perched just a few steps away. Explore the beaches and shore line to find playful sea lions and sea turtles or simply enjoy the sun and the mesmerizing Galapagos scenery.

Diving live-aboard Galapagos

The Galapagos Islands are without doubt one of the most spectacular diving locations in the world. In these clear waters you can dive with hundreds of hammerhead sharks and might also come across a huge whale shark, sea turtles or giant rays. A small live-aboard is the best way to discover the under water world surrounding the Galapagos Islands. With a small group of divers you explore the best diving sites each day.

When to go?

The Galapagos Islands mainly have two seasons: the wet season (December - May) is warm (to more than 30 degrees Celsius) and humid with an occasional heavy rain shower, the dry season (June - November) is cooler (20-25 degrees Celsius) and a bit windier. Many animals can be found all year round, others can only be found in a specific time of year: whale sharks and humpbacks visit the waters around the Islands in the dry season from June - November, whereas the chance to see mantas is the biggest between December and May. So in general there is no best or worst travel period to visit the Galapagos Islands, it all depends on your personal preferences for activities (diving or cruising), weather (warm or cooler) and the wildlife you would love to see.

"The Scuba diving is spectacular! If you're a diver, you can't miss this. Seals, turtles, penguins, mantas, whale sharks, hammerheads - go make a few dives..."
