An 8-day cruise of the Galapagos is considered by most experts to be the ideal cruise length, as you get to see several different islands and at least two differerent visitor's spots each day, providing a complete overview of the Islands. Many travelers critique 4 and 5-day cruises for being too short, as on most cruises, the first and last days are spent traveling from the Ecuadorian mainland leaving only 2-3 days to see the islands! On the other hand, a 15-day cruise circumnavigating the Galapagos may become physically exhausting for some travelers, as a typical day sees passengers rising at 6am with two excursions (usually hikes or snorkeling). Still undecided about how many days you should plan for your cruise? Please contact one of our Galapagos travel experts for help deciding which cruise is best for you.
