Cormorant Itineraries explained

Onboard this luxury catamaran, you will have four itineraries to choose from:

The 4-day A itinerary visits the renowned Southeastern islands of Española and Floreana where you will be able to swim with sea lions, watch the albatross take off and enjoy great snorkeling activities.

The 5-day A itinerary will take you on a tour of the Central Islands. On this itinerary, you will make a stop at Bartholomew island, here you can catch the perfect view of Pinnacle Rock, and take the quintessential picture of the Galapagos Islands.

The 8- day A itinerary combines both the 4 and 5-day itineraries into one week-long itinerary visiting plenty of Galapagos highlights.

Connoisseur Tip: 

My favorite itinerary hands down would be the week-long B itinerary, which visits the iconic Western Islands with a twist. Why a twist? Well, not only do you get to see the Western Islands in style but, you get to visit the sought after and seldom visited Genovesa Island (aka bird island). Highly recommended!

Cruise aboard the Cormorant and get ready for the experience of a lifetime!
