Almost everyone comes Galapagos to see to the amazing fearless animals that call the Galapagos home, and those animals and islands are still the same regardless of which boat you are on or how much you paid for your trip. Economical Galapagos cruises may lack some of the onboard comforts and VIP service of luxury class cruises, but by choosing the right boat and itinerary, you can have an amazing experience on a lower-priced cruise. We have taken the risk out of low-priced Galapagos cruises because since the 1990's we have worked only with yachts that have good levels of service that result in excellent value. Last minute deals are occasionally available. Please contact one of our Galapagos trip planning experts for help finding the best deal.

Traveling to Galapagos on a Budget

Galapagos can be a pricey destination, but there are several tactics you can use to lower the cost of your trip. 

Travel in the Low Season
Most of the year is low season in Galapagos. High seasons are July, August, the end of November, and the Christmas & New Year holiday. 

Galapagos Land-Based Tours
Land-based Galapagos tours can be a less expensive versus cruises. 

Take a Short Cruise
Cruise prices are based upon a per day rate, so taking a 4 or 5-Day cruise can be nearly half as much as an 8-day cruise. 5-Day cruises are recommended, as you spend the first and last days in transit. A 4-day cruise gives you only 2 full days on the islands - not enough!

Extend Your Cruise
By staying in a hotel before or after your cruise, you can extend a 4-Day cruise a few days to be frugal.
