Planned perfectly

We loved this trip. Every day we snorkeled, went on a tender ride to explore the coastline, and went on a hike/walk to explore the land. The days were perfectly planned. There were snacks after every activity and the crew was super vigilant about safety and keeping us informed.

Great Time on the Galaxy

The opportunity to snorkel with turtles and variety of fish. Our group was multi-generational and the children added a fun dimension to the tours.

An incredible Galapagos cruise!

My husband and I loved our 5 day/4 night Galapagos cruise onboard the Galaxy. Everything about the cruise was fantastic. The boat was clean and well furnished. The cabins were spacious and comfortable. The features like shower and air conditioning worked well. The food was wonderful and we never went hungry. We particularly liked the snacks they would serve every time we returned to the boat from an activity like snorkeling or beach walk. The crew was kind and professional. The naturalist was spirited and knowledgeable. Everything happened on a precise schedule that was easy to follow (and nice to have structure). The snorkeling was amazing, especially with the high quality scuba mask and wet suits provided. We will absolutely be returning to the Galapagos another cruise!

Absolutely incredible and utterly unique

A Galapagos cruise seems pricey at first. But once you've experienced one, you will never regret a penny. It's not just that the islands and wildlife are utterly incredible and unlike anything else in this world, there is so much included in that price -- 3-4 excursions a day, zodiacs taking you to and from the islands, snorkeling gear, room + board, nearly a ratio of 1 crew to each guest, as well as the cost of the domestic flight to the islands. It takes an immense amount of effort and resources to execute these trips. It's impossible to describe in words how unique the islands and wildlife are -- it leaves you with a new appreciation of how precious and marvelous our planet it. Just go -- you won't regret it.

The crew and guide provided us with a great adventure.

As a bird photographer I was able to get many good photos and was thrilled with a close up of of a Galapogas Hawk. I also took many exciting scenes. The crew were well trained and very friendly and helpful.
