An Insider’s Guide to Cruising the Galápagos in Luxury

Nov 8, 2023 | Ecuador | 0 comments

Ahoy, travelers! Are you ready for an unforgettable experience? Then why not set sail on a luxury cruise of the beautiful Galápagos Islands? Discover wild and exotic creatures in their natural habitats throughout the islands, as well as gorgeous sunsets and scenery. From snorkeling to kayaking, there is something for everyone – no matter your age or skill level. Come along with me on this unique journey through one of the most amazing places in the world. This is undeniably the ultimate way to explore and navigate the incredible Galapagos Island.

Sorry, this blog post won’t be about the Galapagos Island, but I’m diving into an exciting topic – the yacht that takes you around Galapagos! Don’t worry, though, because a detailed blog post about the Galapagos Islands is coming soon. Stay tuned for some awesome adventures!

I had the most incredible adventure with TBA Escapes – an all-female expedition around the Galapagos Islands! We got to explore this pristine destination in style aboard a privately chartered, carbon-neutral luxury yacht. Picture this: stunning wildlife, breathtaking landscapes, and the most amazing marine environment. And the best part? We had the most fun-filled days exploring this UNESCO World Heritage Site with our fabulous female expert naturalist guides leading the way! Click here to learn more about TBA Escapes.

Not into an all-female cruise? No worries! You can totally book the cruise through Ecoventura. Just click here to start the adventure!

Cabins on the Ecoventura

Come aboard and discover the 10 fantastic staterooms! Each one offers spacious accommodations, panoramic windows, and private bathrooms. And guess what? They have twin beds that magically transform into king-sized beds! How cool is that? Two of their cabins even have space for three lucky guests! Speaking of bathrooms, they have all the amenities you need—a hairdryer, bathrobes, and eco-friendly soaps and shampoos. But that’s not all! They also decorated each cabin with local artwork, and provided fine linens, a safe deposit box, and even an iPod docking system! Get ready for an unforgettable experience on board!

What to expect on the Galapagos cruise.

Get ready to have the time of your life on this yacht! Everything you need is included, so all you have to worry about is what outfit you’ll rock for the next exciting excursion. Get ready to be spoiled!

Daily Itinerary

Picture this: every night, you get your super cool itinerary and a snazzy PowerPoint presentation that reveals all the exciting things you’re gonna do the next day. And guess what? There’s even an awesome itinerary posted on the wall daily, perfect for taking a quick snapshot and staying in the loop for the day. How fun is that?!

Galapagos Adventures

Every single day, you get to explore a brand new Galapagos Island with an awesome tour guide. And that’s not all! You also get to have a blast with epic water activities like snorkeling, kayaking, and even glass-bottom boat rides! You’ll be up close and personal with the incredible wildlife. They’re not even afraid of humans! That means you’ll get an amazing view of these fascinating creatures in water and on land. While I opted out due to exhaustion, the other ladies had a wild time snorkling alongside playful sea lions, cute penguins, and yes, even spotted some sneaky sharks. Talk about an adventure of a lifetime!

Also, Gapagogos is all about maintaining a safe environment for wildlife. Only guides and small groups are allowed on each island at set times. No battling with other tourists for the best view. You and your group practically have the entire island to yourselves. It’s like having a VIP treatment for both you and the wildlife. How cool is that!

Food Onboard

If you’re a fan of the Bravo series “Below Deck,” you’re already familiar with the indulgent life on luxury yachts! One of the best parts? The amazing chef on board who feeds you all day long! You get three delicious meals a day, complete with refreshments and bites after the excursions. And for dinner, brace yourself for a 4-course meal that will blow your mind! Trust me, the food is so good, it’ll make you go OMG!

Check out the incredible windows and views on this yacht while enjoying your delicious meals! It’s a feast for your eyes and taste buds!

One incredible morning, while enjoying our breakfast, we witnessed an astonishing sight – more than 1000 playful dolphins gracefully gliding through the water, accompanied by majestic Orcas. Bursting with excitement, we quickly informed the captain of our breathtaking encounter. Without hesitation, we hopped aboard a dinghy, still wearing our cozy nightgowns, to join the dolphins on their aquatic adventure. It was truly a once in a lifetime opportunity that left us speechless and filled with joy.


There’s always a friendly bartender at the lower and upper deck bar, ready to whip up your favorite cappuccino or martini. It’s like having your own personal mixologist on speed dial! Coming back home is so hard when you’ve been thoroughly spoiled for a week.

Galapagos Airport

Here are some things to keep in mind when booking your flights.

You need to take an international flight to Quito, Ecuador.

Next, take a short flight to Galápagos (San Cristobal) from Quito, Ecuador.

Fly to Galápagos with Ecoventura and enjoy AVIANCA Airlines as your service provider from Quito. And that’s not all – a lively representative from Ecoventura will be there to accompany you on this incredible flight.

Sea Sick

Honestly, I’m not prone to getting seasick, but truth be told, by day 5 I was absolutely ready to bid adieu to the boat and embrace solid land. It was the adventure of a lifetime, and I’ve got a major soft spot for the Galapagos, but boy oh boy, I couldn’t wait to catch some z’s on good ol’ terra firma once it was all said and done.
