Description

A true adventure... an active adventure... and one of the most enriching travel adventures you'll ever experience explores the natural world of the Galápagos Islands. Enjoy a 6-night Galápagos cruise aboard one of the finest expeditionary-style yachts in the region, the Isabela II, for amazing wildlife viewing and an opportunity to get up-close to amazing creatures such as blue-footed boobies, sea lions, iguanas and penguins. Our Galápagos cruise itinerary is flexible, allowing the ship to access many remote islands, choosing beaches that are full of wildlife for shore excursions with our expert naturalists. Landings are made in a panga, a Zodiac-style raft. Dry landings mean stepping from the panga onto rocks or a dock – with the helpful hand of a Tauck naturalist; wet landings require stepping into knee-deep water from the panga, then wading ashore onto a sandy beach.
