Galapagos by Land or Sea?

If you are seeking Galapagos land based tours, know this: You must travel by boat to access the majority of Galapagos visitor sites. Thus, the most efficient mode of travel is an overnight Galapagos cruise since day boats are slower and must travel round-trip each day. But if you seek more down time, more flexibility to craft your adventures each day and additional activities like biking, horseback riding, surfing and swimming, then Galapagos Islands land based tours might be most up your alley.

Timing Your Galapagos Islands Guided Tour

Galapagos Islands land based tours are offered all year thanks to the equatorial climate. And the archipelago’s famed endemic species can be seen year-round—even the penguins! For the warmest waters, look to plan Galapagos hotel packages during the late-winter/early spring months of February, March and April. But, thankfully, on a Galapagos Islands guided tour, your expert naturalist will always tune you into what’s in season.
