Learn about our planned departure for the 2022.
Our tour also includes a  to day tour in Quito and an optional visit to Otavalo.  More extensions upon request. The favorite addition is “Mindo” the Rain Cloud Forest. Paradise for birdwatchers. I advise you to add 3 nights-4 days after the Galapagos Cruise. I will detail the typical day for Mindo as well.  

Arrival:  You should arrive 2 days earlier to Ecuador. Our metting point is in Quito at the airport, where our bilingual guide will welcome you to start your most memorable trip.

Date:   July 13 to 20, 2022   
Galapagos Cruise

During the Yacht trip we will visit the eastern islands, route as indicated in the map which include the islands of Genovesa, Española as well as the central islands. We live onboard from Wednesday to Wednesday, for 8 days (7 nights).

On board we will have a certified naturalist guide who will guide us each day to different sites on land and on snorkeling trips as well.

July is a great time to visit the islands, the flora and fauna is blossoming and we will have an opportunity to see penguins at the Equator, flightless cormorants, Darwin finches, giant tortoises, marine and land iguanas and many other unique species only seen in the Galapagos.

Typical day on board:
Many people ask me for a description of a typical day...
I always smile and tell you it is just as a summer camp day, but for adults. We start at 6:30 wake up call, have breakfast, around 8:00 we are visiting the first site... at 10:00 we are having an snack on board and a few minutes to change, wetsuit on and go to snorkel. Later by noon we are having lunch. Move the boat to the next island or site, and either start with snorkelling activity or walking. Come back, snack, get ready for the next activity.  At 6 p.m. we are back on board, enjoying the sunset. Our guide will give us a conference, and then we will have dinner. By 8:30 p.m. you are either stargazing, or resting after a great and productive day.
