Our Galapagos Experts have hand-picked the best small ships, yachts, and boats that sail the Galapagos Islands. They have been chosen due to having superior levels of service, the best guides, excellent itineraries, comfortable accommodation, superb dining and excellent value. Small cruise ships carry up to a maximum 100 passengers in Galapagos and small boats carry as few as 12 for a more intimate, personalized experience. Smaller boats may be less stable in the water, while larger vessels tend to be more stable, lessening impacts of sea sickness. Catamarans are a more stable option for small boats, and many experts proclaim that a small luxury class catamaran is the ultimate way to sail the Galapagos. Contact one of our Galapagos experts for help selecting the boat or small ship that is perfect for your needs.
