South America Galapagos Islands Cruise

Darwin’s Galapagos Discoveries

This comprehensive itinerary makes it easy to access the Galapagos Islands with an included pre-cruise hotel in Guayaquil, your roundtrip domestic airfare included and other added-value inclusions not common among most other Galapagos cruises. A handpicked 6-night Galapagos itinerary shows you the best of the Islands as you sail between the western island of Fernandina and the southern island of Floreana on this special charter of the 48-guest La Pinta by UnCruise Adventures.

The trip starts with one night on the Ecuadorian mainland at a riverfront Guayaquil hotel. Once in the Galapagos, expert guides lead shore walks to view iconic wildlife such as giant Galapagos tortoises, blue-footed boobies, land and marine iguanas and Darwin’s finches. Marine excursions offer opportunities to snorkel with sea lions, rays or maybe even with a Galapagos penguin. Step ashore on seven islands and islets, including Baltra, North Seymour, Isabela, Fernandina, Rabida, Santa Cruz and Floreana. Hike, snorkel and kayak to discover the unexpected as Charles Darwin did in 1835.
