The Galapagos Islands are packed with spectacular landscapes, captivating wildlife, dramatic sunsets and unique terrain.
Inspired by Darwin’s 19th-century venture, both journeys have been designed for maximum wildlife encounters. Each day takes you to a new island, bay or cove offering new sights, new adventures and new wildlife.
From early morning, the adventures start. Hike along lava fields. Kayak past colonies of sea lions. Visit private, white sandy beaches. Snorkel with penguins and turtles. Spot rare birds from the deck as the boat weaves through the legendary islands.
After the day’s activities, reflect and soak up the beauty of your surroundings from the hot tub. Enjoy an al-fresco dinner as the sun goes down. Once darkness sets in, stargaze from the top of the yacht.
The Galapagos Archipelago is a cluster of some 13 volcanic islands and associated islets and rocks located just under the equator, about 600 miles west of Ecuador.
Each journey on Grace Galapagos departs from Baltra Island. There are daily flights there from both of Ecuador’s international airports.
From Quito, the flight takes around two and a half hours. From Guayaquil, it takes around one and a half hours.
The Galapagos Islands are spectacular all year-round.
Located on the equator, the temperatures don’t change significantly. However, the seasons are split into cool and dry (June to November) and warm and wet (December to May). For the best snorkelling and diving, we recommend visiting during the warm season when the water is calmer, clearer and warmer!
From a wildlife perspective, there are spectacles during each month. It simply depends on what you’d like to see!
