Highlights of the Darwin Cruise

Category: Standard

  • The Darwin yacht offers very attractive value for money when compared to other Galapagos cruises, so is perfect for travellers on a tight budget.
  • She graciously carries the name of the most important visitor the Islands have hosted, Charles Darwin who visited in 1835.
  • Reviews from our past clients praise a high level of on-board service, so this is a recommended Galapagos cruise option.
  • The Darwin yacht offers two types of itinerary: Adventure & Discovery. Each can be booked for 4, 5 or 8 days, or combined into an epic 15 day trip.

About Galapagos itineraries

On day 1 there is only time for an afternoon visit to be included; similarly, on the final day, there is only a brief morning visit. The reason for this is to connect with the Galapagos flight arrivals and departures at the airport.

4 days cruises do not operate during July and August

Contact us for information about which itineraries will run on different dates through the year, and to check tour availabilities. We often have special Galapagos offers too!

All yacht information is correct at time of publishing but may be subject to change by the yacht operator or Galapagos National Park authority. Published prices may be subject to change without prior notice
