Beagle Cruise Ship, Galapagos


Discover the allure of the Galapagos, with its abundance of unusual and diverse flora and fauna, striking landscapes, and numerous exciting activities, and join one of the Beagle Galapagos’ two cruise routes. Both options start and finish at Baltra Island, providing easy access to and from the airport. Join a seven-night expedition of the North Western Islands, visiting places like Darwin Beach Bay on Genovesa Island, Tagus Cove and the Tortoise Breeding Centre on Isabela Island, and Punta Espinoza on Fernandina Island. Or, spend seven nights sailing on the Centre Southern itinerary, visiting the Charles Darwin Research Station and islands such as Floreana, Espanola, San Cristobal, Santa Fe, and Bartholeme.

Named in honour of Charles Darwin’s ship, the Beagle Galapagos has just seven cabins, making her an excellent choice for anyone that wants to experience the wonder of the Galapagos on a small ship cruise. Accommodating just 14 guests per adventure, it’s easy to feel a sense of comradeship whilst benefitting from personalised services. Tasty meals and snacks are served in the outdoor dining area, and you can also enjoy the views and breeze from the sun deck and observation deck. You can also opt to sit indoors in the air-conditioned lounge, complete with an A/V system and library. The onboard naturalist is a great source of knowledge about the diverse wildlife and the area’s history and terrains. Snorkelling gear can be borrowed and the Beagle also has kayaks. The cabins have air conditioning and a private bathroom for your total comfort. Airport pickups are included in the cruise price.

Would definitely do it again.

Every stop we made had at least one amazing discovery. Our guide, Fabian, was incredibly knowledgeable. The size of the vessel was perfect, our group got along great, and the crew was fantastic. Food was great.

Great visit to the north west islands of the Galapagos.

I was able to experience scene right out of documentaries of the Galapagos. Each day is very different and often you wake up to something amazing. I great way to explore different areas of the Galapagos and take in as much as you can. The guide and crew were amazing. I loved the smaller size of the group. Each day was planned and organized. It never felt rushed.

A wonderful visit to several Galapagos islands that completed my first visit to some other islands.

Sharks fishing flying fish one night, snorkeling with a large school of manta rays under me and the sunset in Sombrero Chino island.

One of the best adventure trips I have ever had.

It is difficult to choose when everything has been absolutely perfect, but maybe the fregate male birds with their inflated ballon throats, the sea lions playing on the beach, the orange land iguanas, the giant tortoises and a special natural show dozens of dolphins offered us one afternoon while we were sailing, could be considered the highlights of my trip. I was forgetting to mention another show offered by a giant orca!
