AdventureSmith Explorations has announced a two-for-one special (cruise rate only in shared cabin) for four late summer and early fall departures in the Galapagos Islands on the 32-passenger motor yacht Galapagos Evolution. The cruises take place Aug. 25 to Sept. 4, Sept. 8 to 18, Sept. 15 to 25, and Sept. 22 to Oct.1, and sail roundtrip from Quito, Ecuador. Included are a seven-night Galapagos cruise, pre- and post-cruise Quito hotel accommodations, airport/hotel transfers, roundtrip flights between mainland Ecuador and the Galapagos, and a half-day tour of Quito's old town, a UNESCO designated World Heritage Site.
Fares, which are guaranteed when 16 guests have signed up for the program, start at $5,895 for the first traveler, with the companion paying only $1,100 for extras, such as in-country air tickets, a transit control card and park entrance fees. Those who forego the two-for-one offer and pay full price for the cruise can opt for a complimentary four-night Amazon adventure extension plus free extras valued at $600 per person. Bookings must be made by July 30. For more information, call 800-728-2875 or visit www.adventuresmithexplorations.com.
