Galapagos Boat Tour

Spectacular wildlife, white beaches, and isolated islands can really make you feel like you are in another world when visiting the Galapagos islands. Not only are the islands breathtaking but they are also the home behind Darwin’s ‘Theory of Evolution’, making the destination a perfect choice for nature and history lovers alike.

Galapagos boat tours are a great way to explore the islands. There are many visitor sites that can only be accessed by Galapagos small boat tours to lessen the impact and help to preserve the environment and they also enable guests to get to know the crew and their peers; creating a more personal experience.

Having been in the industry for 37 years, we are the longest-running and most experienced tour company in the Galapagos. Throughout this time, we have perfected the recipe to deliver life-changing tours every time.


How You Know Your Booking The Best Galapagos Boat Tour

When choosing a Galapagos boat tour company, there are key criteria that should be kept in mind. Some things to consider are;

  • Choose someone you can trust - when spending money that you have worked hard to earn, it is important to trust that the tour company is going to deliver what they are offering to the quality that you would expect. Take some time to get to know the tour company and don’t rush into a decision.
  • You get what you pay for - keep in mind that quality doesn’t usually come cheap. A trip to the Galapagos islands is often a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity so spending extra to ensure your vacation is top quality is usually worth it.
  • How knowledgeable is the guide? - When booking a Galapagos boat tour, you expect the crew and guide to be full of passion and experience. They need to be confident and really care about the islands and the information that they are telling you.
  • Research the company - learn about the company; how long they have been in the industry, what is written in previous customer’s reviews, what awards they may have won, and so on. If a company is consistently receiving good testimonials, they are generally a good choice.
  • How personal is the tour? - Small group boat tours create more intimate and personal experiences and enable you to connect with the guide, other guests, and the environment.
