Discover the Galapagos Islands With an Introduction to Ecuador

Our 9-day Galapagos Cruise Discovery holiday is the perfect choice for exploring the Galapagos Islands and visiting Ecuador along the way. The holiday spends three nights in Quito at the start which is perfect for learning about Ecuador’s way of life.

On day four, it's straight off to the Galapagos Islands for a four-day cruise around the archipelago to see the unique wildlife that calls these islands home. 

If you would like to increase your cruise length, change the route or upgrade. Latin Routes has access to a large range of expedition ships from a 12-person catamaran able to anchor in the heart of the action, to a 100-passenger motor yacht offering expedition cruising with all the comforts of a 5* hotel.

Archipel I - Comfort

The Archipel l offers space and comfort; the stability and speed make this catamaran a perfect partner for a Galapagos Islands holiday. The catamaran's eight cabins are minimalistic, light and bright and all come with private bathrooms, hot water and air-conditioning. The eight cabins are all on the main deck, six with twin beds and two with double beds. Cabin doors face inwards towards the communal areas, creating more of a friendly group atmosphere. You will be sure to come away with a new set of friends by the end of the cruise.

The Archipel l also has a comfortable dining room, library, an indoor bar, a bar on the upper deck and a spacious sun deck. The boat also has a complete crew including a naturalist guide level III, who has been trained and licensed by the Galapagos National Park at the Charles Darwin Research Station.

The ships detailed above are for indication only. Latin Routes works with a wide range of ships in the Galapagos and the exact ship will depend upon your preferences and departure date. The ship chosen may affect the price.
