For most travelers, the Galapagos is a once-in-a-lifetime trip, and a Galapagos cruise aboard the Evolution offers one of the finest cruise experiences available. At nearly 200 feet and only 32 guests the Evolution is a spacious and luxurious yacht with a high crew to passenger ratio. She has all the modern amenities and loving attention to detail in its design, yet retains the adventurous atmosphere and charm of a Roaring Twenties small boat. The carefully selected professional and friendly naturalists aboard Evolution are the most knowledgeable in the region, with an average of 15 years of experience guiding on the Islands.

Experience the full spectrum of Galapagos wildlife that made the Islands famous and inspired Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution. Many Galapagos cruises avoid the long navigations to save costs, but Evolution believes that a true Galapagos experience involves visiting the most remote islands as well. Amongst these is Genovesa or Tower Island, found far north on the archipelago. Visit this “Island of Birds” and be amazed at the variety of bird life that inhabits this partially submerged volcano.
Galapagos Evolution Cruise Itineraries
There are two unique 8-day/7-night Galapagos Eclipse itineraries to choose from. One titled "Footsteps Back In Time" which tours the central-western islands and one titled "In the Steps of Pirates & Darwin" which explorers the central-eastern islands. These two cruises can be combined to create a 15-day/14-night cruise with no repeated landing sites.
