Why You’ll Love It
- Single- and triple-person cabins and child-friendly cruises available
- Get up close and personal with marine wildlife
- Friendly guides lead Galápagos expeditions
- A luxurious yacht = your home for a week
The weather’s heating up and you’re ready to ditch the office for a big dose of nature. Ecoventura’s all-inclusive yacht cruises will have you kayaking with sea lions and swimming with penguins in no time.
The Galápagos Islands are home to thousands of wildlife species—good thing you’ll have expert guides leading the way. In fact, each luxurious yacht is designed for groups of only 20 passengers, so you’re guaranteed the VIP treatment.
Try your hand (and flippers) at snorkeling or take a hike in search of blue-footed boobies. With all meals and activities included, the only thing you have to worry about is what to do first. Did we mention you can voyage solo, invite a third wheel, or bring the kids along for the adventure too?

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
“It was the perfect size vessel for a perfect adventure. We saw some bigger boats disgorge their 80 or so passengers at one island and thanked our lucky stars that we booked a smaller vessel.”
“This vacation was one that my daughter and I have talked about since she was a little girl. It was a once-in-a-lifetime amazing experience! I took 1,031 pictures!”
“My whole family has never had so much fun while learning so much. We are all absolutely recommending Ecoventura to our friends!”
“This turned out to be the trip of a lifetime. I cannot say enough good things about the quality of the Ecoventura staff. Everyone from the booking agent, to the crew on the Letty, to the naturalists who accompanied us on all our adventures, was truly extraordinary.”

The moment you step foot on your first island here you’ll see that freedom and fearlessness are a way of life. Whether strolling the islands’ pristine beaches, searching for the spectacular waved albatross, having a “chat” with a particularly friendly sea lion, or snorkeling with Galápagos penguins, a glorious feeling of uninhibitedness abounds.
Our fleet of nimble Zodiacs allow us to nose into landfalls and cruise along reefs, which afford us intimate views of “the action.” Our kayaks let you see the islands at “elbow height.” Our expert Naturalists are always there to point out particularly unusual wildlife behaviors and characteristics so that you may observe, inquire and react as it unfolds before your eyes. Their specialized knowledge and interests — marine biology, zoology, botany, and geology — will transform your adventure into a biology class in real-time.
Here in Darwin’s natural laboratory, the animal world is your oyster.
