Galapagos Islands on Beluga

The Galapagos archipelago represents a spectacular and striking world of volcanic landscapes and fearless animals including Giant Tortoises, Fur Seals, Sea Lions, Land and Sea Iguanas and many species of birds. A cruise to this impressive wildlife sanctuary will be a memorable experience for those who appreciate close encounters with nature. Accompanied by a naturalist guide, this carefully planned eight day cruise aboard the Beluga provides ample opportunity to explore the volcanic and wildlife rich islands. The Beluga is a deluxe 110 foot, steel-hulled motor vessel, fully air-conditioned and accommodates 16 passengers in double staterooms, each with private bathroom and shower.

traveller reviews

Hands down one of the best World Expeditions trips I have been on (and this was my 10th one). The Beluga was a fantastic yacht and the food was of 5 star restaurant quality. The staff worked tirelessly for us and provided a flawless trip. Our guide, Franklin, took great pride in sharing his wealth of knowledge with us and he really took us on a tour to remember. The scenery in the Galapagos Islands was breathtaking and the twice-daily landings didn't disappoint. The most abundance in wildlife I have ever witnessed (and they are not scared of humans so you literally are a few feet away from them). Highlights were swimming with some very cheeky sea lions on multiple occasions and witnessing a very long and entertaining courtship ritual of two Waved Albatrosses. We snorkeled every day (wetsuit definitely required!) and saw amazing creatures underwater and on land. I highly recommend this trip. It is definitely the trip of a lifetime. You won't see wildlife or this spectacular scenery anywhere else in the world.
