Galapagos Tour Options
You can visit the Galapagos Islands aboard a cruise or on a land-based island hopping tour.
There are pros and cons for each option. Regardless of your choice, you will have a splendid time in the Enchanted Islands!
Exploring the Galapagos Islands aboard a cruise is truly magnificent!
Pros of a Galapagos Cruise:
Aboard a cruise you can choose your itinerary, length of stay and yacht class. Also, on a cruise you will sail at night and wake up the next morning at a new visitor site. During a cruise, you will usually have two island visits during the day, lunch on board, an extra activity such as snorkeling or kayaking (if available), dinner on board, a nightly briefing by the guide, and time to chill and enjoy the amenities provided. These amenities can include; a hot-tub, charming sundecks, al-fresco dining options, a BBQ area, relaxing lounge areas, well-appointed bars, espresso machines, among others. In other words, it’s nice being able to enjoy yourself knowing your lodging, meals and entertainment are taken care of.
Land Based Galapagos Tours
Island hopping refers to hotel based lodging. In other words, you will “island hop” back and forth between islands and visitor sites.
Pros of Island Hopping:
Island Hopping provides more flexibility than cruise departures. This means, availability is easier to find, and you can personalize your trip with ease. So, you wont have to worry about getting sea-sick all the time (except for inter-island travel on a speedboat). Therefore, you will have more time on land to explore the islands, rent a bike, kayak, take surfing lessons, go on a diving day tour, eat at local restaurants, or sunbathe and swim at a beautiful beach.
How to choose you Galapagos tour
It really depends on you, and what you want to get out of your trip.
If you want a hassle-free, all-inclusive trip, where you will get to experience the islands in comfort and style, choose a cruise.
If you can’t find availability on a cruise or don’t fancy being on a boat all the time, a more flexible and budget-friendly option would be an island hopping tour.
And, if you cant make a choice, you can opt for a combo package which can include a short 4-5 day cruise and some days on land.
