Galapagos Island Tours & Cruises

The Galapagos Islands are among the planet’s premiere nature and wildlife destinations. The fascinating volcanic geology, unique flora and fauna, and isolated nature of the islands have pushed them to the forefront of scientific inquiry since the mid-1800s, and research on the 13 major islands continues to play a vital role in our understanding of evolution. A cruise through the islands is a once-in-a-lifetime experience and Global Basecamps is proud to work with a hand-picked selection of the most ecologically friendly and sustainable small ships on the water. Our Galapagos trips feature a variety of small-ship cruising options, truly unique multi-day walking safaris, and lodge-based island explorations.

Highlights of Galapagos Islands

Island Hopping Tours

Our land-based itineraries are an innovative new way to explore the islands, developed in participation with the local community, promoting the charms of the most relaxed of the Galapagos Islands: Isabela. Among Isabela's attractions are five active volcanoes, the most extensive wetlands in the archipelago and a three-kilometer-long beach. You will also enjoy trekking with giant tortoises, swimming with white-tipped sharks, snorkeling with marine turtles, kayaking among flamingos, all in surroundings where stress is virtually unknown.

Small Ship Cruises

Our yachts accommodate no more than 20 guests and feature multiple decks and spacious staterooms with beautiful interiors. Itineraries maximize time on the islands and interaction with local wildlife, and the cruises include all meals, non-alcoholic beverages and daily excursions. The ships have a dining room, well-stocked bars and conference areas with a flat screen TV and panoramic picture windows.

Mainland Ecuador

Extend your stay in Ecuador with a few days on the beautiful mainland. Ecuador is one of South America's most diverse destinations, and by no means is limited to the Galapagos Islands. The Amazon Jungle is a short flight away from towering Andean volcanoes, and native cultures range just as wildly. This is a rising destination full of adventure, culture and life. Time on the mainland perfectly compliments the islands.
