Legend Itineraries explained

Onboard the Galapagos Legend Cruise Ship, you will have four itineraries to choose from:

The 4-day A itinerary will take you up north to Genovesa Island. When you make a stop at Genovesa you will mingle with tons of birdlife, beautiful landscapes and go on great snorkeling adventures. Another highlight of this itinerary is the island of Santa Fe where you will be able to observe the Santa Fe iguana, a large land iguana endemic to this island.

On the 5-day B itinerary you will head to the sought after Western Islands of Isabela and Fernandina. This is a great itinerary and the only 5-day itinerary I´ve seen that visits the Western Islands. On top of all this you will be able to visit Santiago Island for more wildlife encounters and great snorkeling. Highly recommended!

The 4- day C itinerary visits Bartholomew island and some central Galapagos highlights including North Seymour and San Cristobal Island. In San Cristobal you will trek at Pitt Point where along the way you will be able to spot all three types of boobies. I know I did…

Finally the 5- day D itinerary takes you down south to Floreana and Española islands. This is a jam-packed and excellent itinerary.

Florena and Española are two of my favorite Galapagos Islands. You will have a chance to spot the magnificent Galapagos Albatross in Española as well as a sea lion ¨nursery¨as you land on the island.

In Floreana, you will have a chance to learn some Galapagos history. When you visit Post Office Bay you can take part in a tradition started by the whalers of yesteryear. In the afternoon you visit Cormorant point. Here you will encounter a green sand beach, spot pink flamingoes along the way, and end up at a white sand beach known as “Flour Beach”.

The best snorkeling site in the Galapagos Islands

You will also be able to snorkel at the Devil´s Crown. Hands down the best snorkeling site in the Galapagos Islands!

Connoisseur Tip: 

It’s hard to decide which itinerary is best onboard the Galapagos Legend cruise ship. A 4-day itinerary might be too short to truly enjoy the Galapagos. I´ve been on 4-day itineraries and the last day I woke up wanting at least an extra day onboard. Many travelers combine a 4 and 5 day itinerary together to get an 8-day week long itinerary. This is a good idea but it might be too long onboard a boat.

My favorite itineraries are the 5-day B and D itineraries. Another great option is to take the D itinerary which takes you to Floreana and Española and then stay on the islands at a fancy hotel in Santa Cruz and Isabela Island.

Either way, you choose to cruise aboard the Galapagos Legend Cruise ship you will have an experience of a lifetime!
