South America Galapagos Islands Cruise

Evolution Galapagos Cruises

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, qualifying her for our curated list of Galapagos luxury cruises. She has all the modern amenities and loving attention to detail in her 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. 

Evolution operates two 8-day Galapagos cruise itineraries, which can be combined to create an all-encompassing 15-day cruise. Look for special family departures with Kids Club activities like stargazing and movie nights, plus child-oriented guides, making Evolution a great choice among our Galapagos family cruises. We look forward to having you join us for the trip of a lifetime! Call today to inquire about a specific Galapagos Evolution itinerary or to learn more about Galapagos Evolution small ship cruises.

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 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. 

The 8-day Footsteps Back in Time itinerary highlights include: Stopping at all the important visitor sites that have shaped the Galapagos islands through history and evolution. Experience all the wonderful flora and fauna of the region while visiting nine islands of this enchanted archipelago, including San Cristobal, South Plaza, Santa Cruz, Mosquera, Santiago, Genovesa, North Seymour, Santa Fe and Floreana.  

The 8-day In the Steps of Pirates itinerary highlights include: Visiting nine islands of this enchanted archipelago, including Baltra, Isabela, Fernandina, Bartolome, Santiago, Santa Cruz, Rabida, Espanola and San Cristobal. Regular opportunities to snorkel, kayak, swim, hike and enjoy panga rides mean interaction with endemic Galapagos species is accessible to travelers of various activity levels.
