Perception vs. Reality
Cruise ships are too massive for exploring Galapagos.
In other parts of the world, cruise ships can, indeed, be massive. But in Galapagos, the largest ships hold a maximum of 100 passengers and are perfect for exploring the islands. The options range from single-guided boats, with approximately 6-10 cabins, to two different types of multi-guided ships: Expedition yachts (approximately 16-24 cabins) and expedition vessels (over 24 cabins).
TRAVEL EXPERT TIP:
Ask about your ship’s capacity.
