Expedition vessels are our favourite way of exploring the Galapagos as they enable you to see a wider variety of islands, a greater diversity of landscapes and, in general, more wildlife. There are a host of boats plying the waters of the Galapagos, all of which are either purpose built or specially adapted for cruising in the Galapagos. However, with capacity varying between 14 and 100 passengers they differ greatly in cabin size, deck space, guide to passenger ratio, facilities on board and comfort levels.
As an alternative, some of the hotels on Santa Cruz Island offer a range of day-trips to nearby islands. You may also choose to stay at one of these properties before or after your cruise for a few days’ relaxation.
When you choose your accommodation in the Galapagos Islands, we can suggest a variety of places to stay that range from luxury properties to family-run guesthouses and hotels in restored historic buildings. They all come recommended by our specialists from their own experience of staying there. Using the filters below you can refine the accommodation options to the places you’re planning to visit.
