Get on board this comprehensive journey through the unforgettable Galapagos Islands. Encounter the region’s incredible wildlife up close – unique birdlife, giant tortoises, gnarled iguanas and playful sea lions are just some of the animals you’ll see. Cruise from Santa Cruz to the islands of Isabella, Floreana, Espanola, North Seymour and more, and explore the diverse landscapes that range from lava flows, rocky outcrops, forests, mangroves and sands of green red and white. Spend evenings and down time on the spectacular Queen Beatriz, with its spacious sundeck, chilled bars and bubbling jacuzzi. For a relaxed discovery of the Galapagos that is filled with beauty, wildlife, fascinating landscapes, snorkelling and plenty of sunshine, this Grand Galapagos adventure ticks all the boxes.
As you fly from Quito to the Galapagos Islands, located in the equatorial water of the Pacific Ocean, you will suddenly find yourself in a very different world.
As you board your vessel, M.C Queen Beatriz, and follow in the footsteps of Charles Darwin, you will encounter nature at its finest.
Explore the islands from on deck, on foot and in the water, no doubt with your eyes open for your next unique sight.
You'll encounter giant Galapagos tortoises, blue-footed and masked boobies, pelicans and frigate birds, as well as land and marine iguanas, sea lions, fur seals and perhaps dolphins, whales and sea turtles.
Because of the extreme isolation of the islands, nearly a quarter of all species are endemic and much of the wildlife has no instinctive fear of man, allowing you to observe nature in its full glory.
This 17-day program is the ultimate Galapagos exploration and our most comprehensive voyage.
It includes the volcanic wonders of Isabela Island and offers the best opportunities to encounter the magnificent flora and fauna that make the Galapagos unique.
