A luxury charter company tailoring trips to your requests and needs to create the perfect experience.
It’s A Tropical Paradise
With 18 major islands, there are dozens of beautiful beaches to choose from. You’ve got everything from the prized white silica squishing beneath your feet to the darker, clay-like sand. Either way, the beaches are guaranteed to be stunning. Best of all, you’ll probably be the only people on the beach.
It’s A Chance To Disconnect
As a self-diagnosed social media addict, I almost lost it when I realized there was no Internet on my boat. I know, I had to take a minute to process too. I went four whole days without using my phone and you can too. At first, it was uncomfortable but I eventually forgot about my Instagram updates and Facebook posts and just enjoyed the time with my partner.
Perfect For Families
The best way to explore the islands is on a cruise. We went on a small private charter with Galapagos Luxury Charters and it was fantastic. The yacht slept 16 people and we had an amazingly attentive staff who among other talents made the best fruit juice ever. I kept thinking this is the perfect family reunion destination or vacationing with multiple families. Split a yacht, why not?!
The Animals, ALL The Animals
Never in my life have I gotten so close to wild animals. I’m talking about swimming with sharks, no cages people. The animals in The Galapagos have been allowed to grow and evolve for thousands of years without having to worry about major predators. This means you can get up close to get the perfect photo without them scurrying away. So get ready for sea turtles, flamingos, dolphins, whales, sharks and every kind of crazy looking bird ever up in your face. But whatever you do, don’t touch them or you an be subject to some major fines.
Darwin helped make the islands famous with his book but there are so many things still being discovered there. The Charles Darwin Research Station on Santa Cruz Island is a breeding center for the beloved turtles and helps them to track and preserve the wildlife on the Islands. It recently got a makeover to allow for more tourists to visit. Plus, every tour must have a certified naturalist with them to talk about the animals, the islands and school you on all things Galapagos.
It’s Perfect For Adventurers
From climbing on volcanoes to snorkeling with penguins, it’s ideal for adventurous explorers. Every time you get off the boat you feel like you’re discovering a new island. We went kayaking around an island and wound up following a heard of mating stingrays. It’s the perfect place for hiking through uncharted terrain and doing ALL the outdoor activities your heart desires.
A Peaceful Place
Unlike so many cruise destinations in the world; The Galapagos Islands is as remote as they come. You know when you’re going on a snorkeling trip in Thailand at least five other boats will show up to snorkel with you? Well, that’s not going to happen in The Galapagos. In fact, you will probably go an entire day without seeing any other humans. That level of isolation made the trip even more special and doubly as peaceful.
