    What to Expect
    This 5-day cruise takes you into the southeastern section of the Galapagos Islands, a UNESCO World Heritage site of 19 islands located off the Ecuadorian coast. Step aboard the San Jose, a motor yacht that cruises at speeds up to 10 knots (12 mph/19 kph). (Note: the tour begins with pickup from San Cristobal Airport and ends with drop-off at Baltra Airport.)

    The spacious yacht accommodates 16 passengers only, and boasts four decks (uncovered and shaded) to relax in and watch wildlife. Enjoy all your meals from the buffet bar in the living/dining room, beginning with lunch on the first day until breakfast on the day of departure. Make yourself coffee or tea any time you wish at the coffee station. Want to enjoy a cocktail al fresco? Purchase your drink of choice from the bar on board. Listen to nightly briefings from your Galapagos National Park–certified naturalist guide and peruse the cozy library for reading on the islands.

    All eight twin cabins stretch from port to starboard, and measure about 8 by 19 feet (2.5 by 5.8 meters). Each cabin includes a private bathroom, privately controlled air conditioning and space to store luggage. The regular twin-size beds can be converted into a double configuration, if you prefer. Plus, the cabins face outward, and you can open windows to let in sunlight and fresh air.
An experienced crew ensures you receive attentive service throughout your journey. To reach the islands, you’ll typically leave your yacht at the anchorage-site and board a dinghy for the final stretch to land. Your crew is trained and ready to assist you as needed. See below for itinerary details.
