The diverse landscapes and marine life of the Galapagos' many islands are best discovered on a cruise around the archipelago. Boat trips stop at two different sites each day and you can spot wildlife both on and offshore, with plenty of snorkelling opportunities available. To protect the islands, cruise vessels operate cyclical two-week itineraries, which reduces footfall at the most popular sites. Boat sizes and facilities vary considerably and choosing the right vessel is important.
