Galapagos Explorer operates the Explorer II in the pristine waters around the six primary islands.

Additionally, the company supports sustainable ecological, conservation, and educational practices by ensuring products and services on board the ship are consistent with directives from conservation efforts on San Cristobal Island.

Traveling the Galapagos Islands provides innumerable opportunities for families and seniors to enjoy low impact environmental excursions into one of nature's wonders much like Darwin may have experienced it several hundred years ago. The Explorer II offers twice-daily tours conducted by expert guides. Nearly 97 percent of the Galapagos Islands are protected as National Park or Natural Heritage for Humanity lands. It remains truly nature's paradise.

What's more, travelers will enjoy the islands' richness while protecting its resources. Galapagos cruise ships adventures provide opportunities to see colorful marine life, including fish, garden eels, water turtles and iguanas. Many vacationers relish in viewing the Galapagos Penguin or the Giant Tortoises. Since the Galapagos Islands were formed by volcanoes, they sport amazing rock formations and endemic flora and fauna.

As one of the earliest Galapagos cruise ships operating in the area, Galapagos Explorer continues to provide both luxury and environmentally conscious service for travelers. Taking quality and social responsibility seriously, the company has moved a 12-year veteran into the Director's helm. Rafael Cuesta Alvarez is 'piloting' the company's efforts, bringing the highest quality of service and competitive pricing that continues the tradition of excellence.
