Tour description provided by Viator

Take a 4- or 5- day trip to the Galapagos Islands aboard a yacht! Explore six different islands, and see their amazing array of plant and animal life, contrasted against the striking natural features of the islands! See the Charles Darwin Scientific Station, and enjoy daily accommodations at the Santa Cruz Island Hotel!

Spend four or five days exploring some of the most famous islands in the world! The Galapagos Islands were prominently featured in Charles Darwin’s landmark book on evolution, The Origin of the Species. Like him, you will get the chance to see the sights on six different islands, each with their own unique qualities and charms!

On your first day, upon arrival on Santa Cruz Island, a coach will pick you up at the airport and take you to your hotel. On the way, visit lava tunnels and a sea turtle reserve, and stop at Charles Darwin Station to learn about the islands’ animals and Darwin’s observations, as well as the islands’ conservation efforts.

Your island hopping begins the next day. You’ll travel by yacht to the islands of your choice (season and weather permitting) and spend each day exploring their sights, returning to the amenities and comfort of your Santa Cruz Island hotel. Plan your tour itinerary based on the islands’ different offerings (described below) and pre-book to ensure passage on this comfortable yacht.

Your multi-day tour includes accommodations on Santa Cruz, all inter-island transport, on-island tours and guides and daily breakfast and lunch served aboard the yacht. Upgrade to the five day tour so you see everything this fascinating archipelago offers!

Please see the itinerary field below for details on the islands.
