South America Galapagos Islands Cruise

National Geographic Galapagos by Catamaran: An Intimate Voyage

Experience the Galapagos aboard a stylish and stable double-hulled yacht for 16 guests, well-equipped for up-close exploration. Enjoy a rare 8:1 guest-to-guide ratio while touring pristine beaches and volcanic shores on foot and by panga, snorkel, kayak and stand-up paddleboard. See and do more with two veteran naturalists, including a National Geographic certified photo instructor. National Geographic Delfina is also available as one of AdventureSmith’s Galapagos Islands yacht charters, for a private experience with family and friends, or your organization.

Your travel journal will be full of memories from your Nat Geo Galapagos catamaran cruise. Adventure by kayak, paddleboard and Zodiac on waters rich in marine life. Discover wildlife unfazed by your presence: lounge on beaches with sea lions, walk among huge colonies of marine iguanas, and delight at the antics of nesting seabirds from ship and shore. Snorkel with sea lions, turtles and abundant fish in the protected waters of the Galápagos Marine Reserve.

Galapagos sailings aboard the National Geographic Delfina feature nimble kayaks, stand-up paddleboards and Zodiac-brand pangas that cruise to the volcanic shores and pristine beaches of Galapagos, plus an undersea focus to bring seldom seen or heard worlds to life. Every expedition in the Galápagos is led by a team of naturalists, a videographer and expedition leader, providing a multitude of resources for a rich and unmatched understanding of all the sights and sounds. Plus, each ship’s unique exploration-based family program, National Geographic Global Explorers, caters to kids and teens, making each an excellent option for Galapagos family cruises
