Galapagos Islands Adventures

Experience the Wonders of the Galápagos Islands with MT Sobek


Take a Voyage of Discovery
Explore the most enchanting nature paradise in the world with the pioneers in Galápagos voyages since 1970. We create an exclusive, expert-led adventure aboard small, deluxe and luxury yachts and catamarans—limiting the group size to 16 to ensure that we cruise (and tread) lightly. The result is an intimate and immersive Galápagos experience that is much more than a cruise. It’s a true voyage of discovery.


See Wildlife Beyond Your Imagination
Be amazed by the fearless endemic wildlife that has evolved in isolation for eons, allowing for up-close encounters with sea lions, blue-footed boobies, marine and land iguanas, giant tortoises—even penguins! Your naturalist guides will inform and inspire you, and help you gain a deep understanding of all the creatures you’ll meet along the way.


Get Active With Your Family
The Galápagos Islands are perfect for families and groups looking to enjoy immersive exploration together—on an active vacation perfect for all ability levels. Experience the islands on expert-led nature hikes; swim, snorkel, and sea kayak with an array of marine life; or simply take time to relax aboard your deluxe boat. Create memories to treasure!


Embark on the Ultimate Cruise

Come aboard your adventure cruise through one of the most exotic places on Earth! As pioneers of small-group travel in the Galápagos, we are committed to exploring the islands in the best way possible. Small deluxe yachts and catamarans have less impact on the environment, they allow for more flexibility and more time for shore excursions. This gives you greater control of the experience and access to all the activities offered. You will also receive more attention from your expert guide and crew as part of an intimate group—not part of a crowd. Enjoy snorkeling, hiking, and encountering animals unafraid of you. Experience the magic and mystery of a cruise to the Galápagos Islands. Let us be your guides to the perfect Galápagos vacation.

MT Sobek Guest, Ecuador Galápagos Adventure Cruise

"I've traveled around the world and always took pride in my ability to research and inform myself about my destination. No amount of research would have been able to give me the experience that travelling the Galápagos w MT Sobek did. As we finished this trip I looked back and wondered how much more incredible my previous trips would have been had I done them w MT Sobek."
