How Active Is the Galapagos Islands on a Cruise?

While in the Galapagos you will find that you are constantly active, doing nature hikes, snorkeling, swimming and sea kayaking all in an effort to get up close to the islands’ amazing animals. The way in which the Galapagos National Park has structured activities translates into the Galapagos not being a strenuous multi-sport destination centered on being rigorous. Instead, the Park has structured activities around interaction with wildlife and the habitat. That is really what the Galapagos is all about. We make our trips more active by planning landings in places that offer better hikes like at Tagus Cove or to the top of Bartolome Island. We also offer itineraries that take in the more remote sites and outer islands, rather than staying solely in the more traveled inner islands (not all yachts are equipped to travel to the outer islands). We maximize our opportunities to snorkel and kayaking on each trip. We also offer opportunities for diving, for both advanced and intermediate divers.
