Galapagos Island sailing


The Galapagos Islands, 700 miles of the western coast of Ecuador, are one of the world's great natural wonders. The Islands are a perfect destination for a family adventure.

Boat trips in the Galapagos vary greatly, from small-scale, budget yacht charters to luxury cruise ships.

When beginning your research, it's well advised to go with an established outfitter, particularly ones that have been in the biz for a number of years; ship classification is far from set in stone, though three levels of class are usually the standard, one being economy, three encompassing all the luxury trimmings.

Local weather conditions at the time of your departure will dictate the exact itinerary of the cruise, but one-week trips will focus on the eastern and central islands while the two-week trip will take in far-flung western islands.

Throughout the trip, the schooner will anchor in sheltered coves for swimming and snorkelling alongside tropical fish, turtles and sea lions.

Any person on board wishing to visit the Galapagos National Park areas has to pay an entrance fee of US$ 100 for foreigners over 12 years of age and US$ 50 for those under 12.
