Galapagos Tours Provide Incomparable Adventure & Ecotourism
Education Through Adventure
An informative Galapagos Tour That Includes Comfort
Adventure abounds on all Galapagos Tours whether you are six or sixty, when traveling on the premiere flagship, the Explorer II. There are many reasons to vacation in the Galapagos Islands, not the least of which includes choosing the right combination of educational experiences, high quality travel, and environmental responsibility. For the past 23 years, the Galapagos Explorer has been providing just such excellence in ecotourism and adventure.
The Explorer II offers two excursions per day for either land or marine guided Galapagos tours. With four primary ecosystems to choose from (arid lowlands and open forests, subtropical forest, higher elevation dense forests, and upland grasslands), you can revel amongst endemic species of plants, animals, reptiles, and marine life.
For many traveling on Galapagos tours, the topography is of particular interest. Being formed by volcanoes, you can imagine Darwin’s first vision of the rocky escarpments and cliffs, some seeming to drop off suddenly to nowhere. Some of the geography even looks moonlike and craggy. It is little wonder the Discovery Channel and Disney Adventures have paid particular attention to this most unique travel destination above and beyond the most amazing wildlife that lives here.
Using Certified Naturalists provided by the Galapagos National Park system, we facilitate low impact tours to the environment while immersing travelers in the richness of this natural paradise. Vacationers can choose from walking or hiking tours, glass-bottom boat tours, or snorkel or scuba diving trips depending on interests and skill capabilities.
We combine all land and sea excursions with the highest quality educational and conservation resources available through programs sponsored by the Charles Darwin Station, Galapagos National Park, San Cristobal Board, and INNFA (National Institute for Children & Families).
Of course, our Galapagos tours are provided with the most impeccable attention to detail and comfort on our all-suite vessel. Our highly trained staff is bilingual, attentive, and resourceful. The Explorer II has four suite categories, including the highest number of balcony cabins of any ship in the area, with an ample average 250 sq feet to luxuriate in after touring the islands. Evenings can be spent enjoying our fine Ecuadoran cuisine and chocolate. And after dinner, many travelers love to stargaze on the Solarium deck.
For adventure, learning experiences and the finest comfort offered on any cruise ship in the archipelago, your family can explore the most unforgettable destination on earth when taking one of our Galapagos tours.
