Sailing  in Galapagos

Cruise trips in the Galapagos vary greatly, from small-scale, economic yacht charters to luxury cruise ships. When beginning your research, it's well advised to go with an established outfitter, particularly ones that have been in the biz for a number of years.

Ship classification is far from set in stone, though four levels of class are usually the standard:

Galapagos Islands sailing, economic cruises Economic cruises

Sailing in the Galapgos Islands, tourist cruises Tourist cruises

Galapagos Islands sailing, First class cruises First class cruises

Galapagos sailing, luxury cruises Luxury cruises

The basic components of all yacht charters are food, guide, and accommodations. For cuisine, the more you spend, the better the show. A guide's skill level and language ability increases as you move up the spectrum. Likewise, accommodations get a boost as you ascend the economic ladder, but remember, you'll spend most of your time either on the islands, in the water, or on deck, so a cramped room may be a tolerable hardship for the week or so you're at sea. You can contact outfitters with the tour operators who will provide you the information that you need.
