Experience The Galapagos Islands in a Private Cruise

Galapagos private cruise

When you travel to the Galapagos Islands on a cruise, you have the opportunity to visit those unique nooks that not everyone gets to see, which makes your trip even more special. But there is an even better way to explore the Enchanted Islands. You could explore the beautiful Galapagos Islands on a private cruise!


Going on a private cruise trip or charter is the absolute definition of an exclusive high-end holiday. Charters are genuinely the best way to go when you want to appreciate all the greatness of the Galapagos National Park.

Galapagos Private Cruise

What is Exactly a Charter?

When you use the word charter, you could just be referring to making a reservation on a boat. Nonetheless, in the Galapagos Islands, when you say that you want to charter a cruise, this indicates that a group of family or friends decided to rent the whole craft exclusively and privately for the group.

This does not mean you would be renting just a boat, absolutely not. You would be renting the entire crew and all-inclusive services of a complete Galapagos cruise for your own private group. Isn’t this something?

The “charter” term also started to be applied to basically every service that can be private. For example, you can also charter a restaurant, a hotel, etc.

And who wouldn’t want to do that?… Having the exclusivity of a whole hotel just for you and your travel party. If you already chartered a boat, why not charter the hotel as well?

Hotel for Yourself

Amazing hotels are at your disposal

If you are looking for a secluded place, Hacienda Las Cuevas is the place for you. If you are looking for the perfect mixture of luxury and local authenticity, Illa Experience Hotel is the right choice; And when you would like to feel the experience of a country club, Quito Polo Club is the one.

Why is Chartering a Boat The Best Way to Go?

This last year has made it a priority. The first thing that comes to mind when traveling is safety

People need to be as cautious as they can be when they travel around, and what can be safer than having a complete boat just for you and your loved ones? You have the certainty that the crew is taking all precautions above and beyond local and international guidelines, so you and your group are as safe as possible.

A Galapagos private cruise is ideal for families and friends departures. The ultimate way to explore the Galapagos Islands is to charter a vessel. Chartering allows you to personalize your Galapagos experience exactly the way you dream it. 

Another huge reason why chartering a boat is the best way to go, is for privacy.

Since you are in charge of the guest list, there’s no concern that you will be on the cruise with strangers. This makes it a really good option for any group looking to focus their Galapagos trip on one theme (like clubs, photography groups, company retreats, family reunions, etc). You can relax and share memories in the closeness of those you know and care about most.

Your Cruise Itinerary

The idea is to customize your trip and make it as perfect as possible. However, it is important to mention that the dates and itineraries are fixed and enforced by the Galapagos National Park, so there is not much flexibility in itineraries and schedules when you are already on your trip, meaning, you could not change your itinerary as you please.

But there’s nothing to worry about, you will get the itinerary of a lifetime, covering every little detail you need.

When is the Perfect Time to Travel to Galapagos?

You will always hear that the Galapagos is one of those destinations worth visiting all year round, and it is true. For example, if you are a wildlife lover, then you just need to let us know what species you would like to spot, and we will do our best to make it happen.

Just please have in mind that charters are typically planned at least one year in advance of the cruise departure date, and for holidays like Christmas, New Year’s, and Easter it is advised to book two years in advance. So make sure you plan ahead.

Which one is the Best Vessel for Your Trip?

There are about 70 independent cruise boats on the Galapagos Islands, so there is a boat available for each budget.

For example, the tourist class is the most basic. In this class, you will have a rather small ship (up to 14 cabins) with a level I Naturalist Guide, 3 basic meals a day, and you might sleep in bunk beds.

On the other hand, the highest service level comes from luxury class cruises. On this type of cruise, everything is well arranged. The food is amazing, and most of the time there is a jacuzzi on board. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable, and wetsuits and snorkeling gear are included. Additionally, you will have a level III Naturalist Guide.

First Class Cruise

Our personal recommendations for private cruises at the Galapagos Islands are Samba, Grace, Camila, Odyssey, and Sea Star Journey.
