The 4, 5, 11 and 15 day cruises are variations of the above Galapagos itineraries - starting on Fridays or Mondays. Please check with our sales staff before booking to be sure which itinerary will operate for your Galapagos cruise dates.

Important note about Galapagos itineraries: On day1 there is only time for an afternoon visit to be included; and on the final day only a brief morning visit. The reason for this is to connect with the Galapagos flight arrivals and departures at the airport. All Galapagos yachts follow this schedule, not only the Tip Top 2.
