Passengers are taken ashore as a single maximum group size of sixteen with your dedicated naturalist guide who is certified and speaks fluent English. On the islands you will follow marked trails, walking at a leisurely pace, with your guide explaining the unusual sights you see. You will spend 3 to 4 hours at each site, allowing plenty of time to explore the abundant wildlife. The snorkelling schedule allows several immersions during the cruise. The use of snorkelling equipment and wetsuits is complimentary. Most of the snorkelling activities take place before or after island excursions, so that you will not miss the hikes.
Best time to be thereThe Galapagos are best from April to August - not too warm and plenty of animals in their breeding seasons.
