What To Expect During Your Galapagos Cruise
What will you see? What should you expect?
Animals and birds
Marine and Land Iguanas, Sea Lions, Sea Turtles, Giant Tortoise, a tremendous variety of birds including Blue Footed Boobies, Herons, Flightless Cormorants, Frigate Birds, Mockingbirds and the Galapagos penguins. The animals here are not afraid of man and you can get extremely close. Snorkeling with the animals is a rare treat and the sea lions will swim right around you and even come to look right in your mask.
The islands do vary from one another, some are more mountainous, some are flat, some are mostly lava. All are interesting. Pictures below show the diversity. Getting from island to island is so easy while staying onboard and being transported by ship.
The Cruise Ships
Do not expect big luxurious cruise ships here. The ships are older, smaller and all about getting you from one island to another. However the ships we recommend, The Silver Galapagos and The Coral I & II are comfortable and offer nice accommodations, good food and excellent value during your Galapagos adventure. There are other good quality ships in the Galapagos as well.
