To maximize trip comfort and efficiency, Galapagos Explorer is currently refurbishing key components onboard the Explorer II to enhance the pleasure of visiting the Galapagos Islands.

All told, between an incomparable destination and vessel upgrades, each pricing option continues the tradition to visit the natural laboratory that changed history. Near the equator and developed from volcanic action, the Galapagos reveals breathtaking examples of humpback whales, dolphins, marine iguanas, blue-footed boobies, hammerhead sharks, among numerous other species. The vessel stops at several islands-San Cristobal, Isabela, Bartholomew, Fernandina, Santa Cruz, to name a few.
