Small Group Travel

The Galápagos Islands are perfect for families and couples looking to enjoy immersive exploration in small intimate groups, which is why we book no more than 16 guests on each departure. Going small means you have greater access to all of the activities, more flexibility for shore excursions, and more personal attention from your expert guides and crew.

Amazing Wildlife

Charles Darwin immortalized these equatorial islands for their highly adapted, endemic wildlife. Evolving in isolation for eons, the wildlife remains fearless of humans and allows for magical up-close encounters with sea lions, blue-footed boobies, marine and land iguanas, giant tortoises—even penguins!

We Are Committed to Conservation

We are proud to work closely with the Galapagos National Park to help support the long-term protection of the islands. Our annual donation to the Galapagos Conservancy seeks to preserve the fragile ecosystems and wildlife of the Galapagos—and ensure a sustainable future.
