Spring Break at the Galapagos Islands
Spring Break is a great time to bond with the fam or travel with a group of friends to exotic waters. Few places on Earth, however, offer possibilities as wonderfully varied as the Galapagos Islands. Nestled off the shores of Ecuador, this natural wonder is one of the most spectacular sights on this side of the world. Expect to visit rugged volcanic landscapes interspersed by crystalline waters and picture-perfect sceneries, encounter animals unlike any you’ve ever seen before (giants turtles, blue-footed boobies, flightless birds, red-billed frigates, floating iguanas, you name it!), and immerse yourself in the rich history of these incredible islands.
Whether you’re travelling with your family or with a group of friends, we’re sure that you’ll find the Galapagos Islands offer fun for every taste. We’ve compiled a list of things to do for you based on who you’re visiting with – check them out! Paradise is waiting!
Fun for Families
This is a trip to make your family’s every dream come true! If you’re traveling with children, visiting the Galapagos is a no-brainer thanks to our Young Pirates program: watch your kids learn about the islands’ rich geological and biological history while they have the time of their lives! The Galapagos Islands are the cradle of evolution; it is here that Charles Darwin drafted his famous theory, basing it directly on many of the animals found around the area. This is a learning-based trip that they will never forget!
What about the adults, you say? Have no fear! The enchanted isles are replete with activities tailor-made for the grownups in the family. Enjoy a relaxing massage, a fantastic scuba-diving trip to the colorful depths, or a luscious meal aboard one of our cruises (fe personally recommend the Santa Cruz II – it’s ideal for families). There’s fun for everyone in the family at the Galapagos!
Spring Break is an ideal time to go on a romantic journey to a far-off paradise. Treat yourself and your partner to an adventure fit for the gods; you’ll be surrounded by stunning sights as your cruise ship ferries you from one island to the next. You’ll also be able to enjoy sunset dinners on deck, adventure off in a couple’s kayak, explore the gorgeous volcanic trails, and enjoy relaxing afternoons in luxurious comfort.
There’s a reason why the Galapagos Islands are called the Enchanted Isles; they fascinate and dazzle all who venture there. Discovering the wonders of the islands as a couple is an experience of a lifetime and an ideal moment to rekindle the flame of romance. Join us and prepare to delight your senses!
The Friend Experience
Are you thinking of taking a break from it all with a group of your friends? Caribbean cruises can be tempting – but they offer you a typical experience aboard a massive ship with little room for genuine adventure. The Galapagos Islands offer you an opportunity unlike any other; you’ll be able to participate in a plethora of adventure-activities (kayaking, snorkeling, scuba-diving, trekking, biking, and climbing, to name a few) all while enjoying the comforts of your mid-size, highly personalized cruise. Our cruises only offer room for up to 90 people, meaning you’ll be able to enjoy all of the activities on offer in smaller, more autonomous groups.
If you’re looking to party, many of our cruise ships are equipped with bars and even small party-lounges where you’ll be able to dance the night away. You can also drop by one of the cities in the island for a more localized party experience. The Galapagos Islands offer a spectacular backdrop to any spring break vacation. Pamper yourselves surrounded by sights unlike anything you’ve ever seen before. You won’t regret it – we guarantee it.
