Grand Majestic Galapagos Cruises

Step aboard the 16-guest Grand Majestic for an upscale experience on a modern and luxurious ship with the feel of a private yacht. Choose between excellent 4-, 5-, and 8-day itineraries full of underwater exploration, panga rides and land treks, led by a certified bilingual naturalist guide. Kayaks, wetsuits and snorkel gear travel on board with you to maximize opportunities for below-water wildlife encounters.

After each excursion, return to a well-appointed ship with a dedicated crew. Relax in an air-conditioned lounge, enjoy a drink with friends out on deck, or soak in the Sun Deck Jacuzzi. The ship boasts her 25-knot max cruising speed as one of the fastest in the Galapagos, and her Master Suite is ready to pamper with his and hers bathrooms and 420 square feet to spread out in.

The Grand Majestic operates two main 8-day itineraries, which can be combined to create a 15-day/14-night cruise with no repeated landing sites. There is also a shorter 5-day route and a 4-day route that each offer a variation of the 8-day Grand Majestic Eastern Galapagos Islands Cruise. You may also customize your trip to be 11 or 12 days. 

The 8-day Eastern Grand Majestic cruise operates round-trip from San Cristobal and visits the islands of Floreana, Espanola, Santa Cruz, Genovesa, Rabida and Chinese Hat. Highlights include the red-sand beach of Rabida Island, the chance to spot the Galapagos short-eared owl and red-footed booby birds at Genovesa Island, and witnessing the breeding site of nearly all of the world’s 12,000 pairs of waved albatrosses on Espanola Island. The 8-day Grand Majestic Eastern Galapagos Islands Cruise can be combined with the 8-day Grand Majestic Western Galapagos Islands Cruise to create a longer 15-day trip with no repeated landing sites.

The 8-day Western Grand Majestic cruise operates round-trip from San Cristobal with visits to the islands of North Seymour, Santa Cruz, Bartolome, Santiago, Isabela and Fernandina. Highlights include a hike above the iconic Pinnacle Rock on Bartolome Island, whale watching in the active Bolivar channel between Isabela and Fernandina islands, and the lava flows on Santiago Island. The 8-day Grand Majestic Western Galapagos Islands Cruise can be combined with the 8-day Grand Majestic Eastern Galapagos Islands Cruise to create a longer 15-day trip with no repeated landing sites.

The 5-day Northern Grand Majestic cruise sails from Santa Cruz to San Cristobal with visits to the islands of Genovesa, Rabida and Chinese Hat. Highlights include the red-sand beach of Rabida Island and the chance to spot the Galapagos short-eared owl and red-footed booby birds at Genovesa Island. The 5-day Northern Grand Majestic cruise encompasses the final 5 days of the longer 8-day Eastern Grand Majestic Cruise.

The 4-day Southern Grand Majestic cruise sails from San Cristobal to Santa Cruz with visits to the islands of Floreana and Espanola. Highlights include the green and flour-white beaches of Floreana and witnessing the breeding site of nearly all of the world’s 12,000 pairs of waved albatrosses on Espanola Island. The 4-day Southern Grand Majestic cruise encompasses the first 4 days of the longer 8-day Eastern Grand Majestic cruise.

Every itinerary operated by Grand Majestic is sure to be a hit. However, you can set your own agenda by booking this luxury yacht as one of our private Galapagos yacht charters for your group of 16 or fewer. Due to her size, Grand Majestic also offers an excellent option among our Galapagos Family Cruises & Tours.

Day 2
TUE - Post Office Bay, Baroness Viewing Point, Cormorant Point & Devil's Crown (Floreana)

Land on a beach and head to a spot where 18th century whalers placed a wooden barrel used as an unofficial mail box. The custom continues to this day with Galapagos visitors. So, don’t forget your postcards, and don’t be surprised if the post card arrives to its destination before you even get home! Baroness Viewing Point is a fantastic place to absorb the environment of the Galapagos. Once inhabited by an indulgent baroness and her three lovers, the history of this island is intriguing. The legends about this baroness are associated with a fascinating murder mystery. There are easy trails in this area for exploring the flora and fauna of Floreana.

Cormorant Point hosts a large flamingo lagoon where other birds such as common stilts and white-cheeked pintails can also be seen. The beaches on this island are distinct: The Green Beach is named for its green color, which comes from a high percentage of olivine crystals in the sand, and the Flour Sand Beach is composed of white coral. Enjoy a chance to snorkel around Devil’s Crown which is the rocky remains of an offshore volcano sticking out of the water. This is a great location to spot a wide range of marine creatures.

THU - Twin Craters & Fausto Llerena Breeding Center (Santa Cruz)

Visit the Twin Craters located opposite to each other on both sides of the road leading from Puerto Ayora to Baltra. The name is only figurative; not real craters, these formations were created by the collapse of surface material in underground fissures and chambers. The view is breathtaking. Then visit “Fausto Llerena” Tortoise Breeding Center in Puerto Ayora, where giant tortoises are bred in captivity. This is home to tortoises ranging from 3 inches (new hatchlings) to 4-feet-long adults. Subspecies of the giant tortoises interact with one another, and many of the older tortoises are accustomed to humans, stretching out their heads for a photo opportunity. The babies are kept until they are about four years old and strong enough to survive on their own.

Some species are abundant such as a few varieties of finches, Galapagos vermilion flycatchers, Galapagos hawks and brown pelicans.

In the afternoon, visit Chinese Hat. This small islet is located near the southeast coast of Santiago Island. Its name comes from the distinct shape of the islet’s summit. Chinese Islet is a great location to view many geological formations such as lava tunnels and lava flows. Some of the lava flows were formed underwater and subsequently raised above sea level. The presence of coral heads on the lava flow indicates this phenomenon.

Flights from mainland Ecuador (Quito or Guayaquil) to the Galapagos are not included in the cruise price, but are arranged for you by AdventureSmith Explorations through your ship. Your Adventure Specialist will book these flights for you on the scheduled Galapagos flight for your particular departure. Airfares vary by departure; your Adventure Specialist will detail these for you in their proposal and on your invoice. On flights from mainland Ecuador to the Galapagos Islandsbaggage weight limits are currently 50 pounds for checked items, and 17 pounds for carry-on plus a small personal item. Subject to change.

Activities

There are numerous opportunities to swim and snorkel. The underwater experience is an integral part of any Galapagos cruise. We encourage all travelers to try snorkeling. Wetsuits are available, either free of charge or to rent for a fee (see Inclusions and Exclusions), and are recommended from June to December.

Daily excursions from the boat to the islands will be made in pangas (inflatable skiffs). Trip members will hike from the landing point to specific areas for wildlife observation. Hiking time for most landings will be a couple of hours round-trip with lots of time to stop to study, photograph and enjoy the flora and fauna. Some landings are dry but many are “wet,” requiring cautious footing on slippery rocks. The boat staff will be on hand to assist.

Room Configuration

Single travelers wishing to book a double-occupancy cabin may do so at an 70%(2022) or 80%(2023) supplement of the per-person listed rate in select cabins upon availability. Groups of 4-14 passengers will receive a 10% discount.

Families & Children

Children under 12 years old receive 20% off the double occupancy rate. Kids 7 years and older are welcome aboard all departure dates for individual bookings.

Travel Insurance

Protect your travel investment with insurance. Our partners at Travelex Insurance offer a variety of plans and policies to fit every trip and budget. Coverage for a pre-existing medical condition is also available if you purchase the Travel Select plan within 15 days of the initial trip payment; refer to plan details. Learn more about travel insurance or get a free quote.

Note that Galapagos Province requires foreign travelers to show proof of medical insurance coverage for entry. If you are traveling to the Galapagos Islands, confirm with your travel insurance provider that your policy contains medical coverage to meet this entry requirement.  Be certain to bring your insurance plan ID documents with you when you travel.

Itinerary Notes

Use the itinerary as a guide only. Itineraries may be altered due to weather, wildlife, national park regulation or at the captain’s discretion. Due to the active nature of volcanoes in the Western Galapagos, alternate excursions may be offered. The ability to be flexible makes this type of small ship cruising unique.

Day 1
MON - Embark San Cristobal to El Junco Lagoon

Arrive at San Cristobal Island in the morning. After passing through immigration and baggage claim, be met by a staff member and transferred to the yacht. Be shown to your cabin where there is time to settle in before lunch and a welcome briefing. Located in the highlands roughly 12 miles from Puerto Baquerizo Moreno, El Junco is located in the caldera of an extinct volcano. Rainwater feeds the lagoon. There are many farms and ranches in this area of San Cristobal Island, and sometime cows can be found near the lagoon.

Day 2
TUE - Post Office Bay, Baroness Viewing Point, Cormorant Point & Devil's Crown (Floreana)

Land on a beach and head to a spot where 18th century whalers placed a wooden barrel used as an unofficial mail box. The custom continues to this day with Galapagos visitors. So, don’t forget your postcards, and don’t be surprised if the post card arrives to its destination before you even get home! Baroness Viewing Point is a fantastic place to absorb the environment of the Galapagos. Once inhabited by an indulgent baroness and her three lovers, the history of this island is intriguing. The legends about this baroness are associated with a fascinating murder mystery. There are easy trails in this area for exploring the flora and fauna of Floreana.

Cormorant Point hosts a large flamingo lagoon where other birds such as common stilts and white-cheeked pintails can also be seen. The beaches on this island are distinct: The Green Beach is named for its green color, which comes from a high percentage of olivine crystals in the sand, and the Flour Sand Beach is composed of white coral. Enjoy a chance to snorkel around Devil’s Crown which is the rocky remains of an offshore volcano sticking out of the water. This is a great location to spot a wide range of marine creatures.

Day 3
WED - Suarez Point, Gardner Bay/Islet & Osborn Islet (Espanola)

On the trail to Suarez Point enjoy the chance to spot blue-footed boobies, albatrosses and Nazca boobies. This island is the breeding site of nearly all of the world’s 12,000 pairs of waved albatrosses. Also visit a beautiful site on the ocean front with a cliff that the large albatrosses use as a launching pad! Have the chance to see the famous blowhole that spurts sea water into the air. The landscape is great for photography. In the afternoon visit the spectacular Gardner Bay. After landing, walk across a lovely white-sand beach amongst a busy sea lion colony or dive into the water to swim with sea lion pups. There may be curious mockingbirds on the beach.

Day 4
THU - Twin Craters (Santa Cruz) & Disembark Baltra

Visit the Twin Craters located opposite to each other on both sides of the road leading from Puerto Ayora to Baltra. The name is only figurative; not real craters, these formations were created by the collapse of surface material in underground fissures and chambers. The view is breathtaking. After this final visit, be transferred to the Baltra airport in time for the flight back to the mainland.
