We know this to be true:  children and animals have a natural affinity for each other!   We’ve all seen this wonderful phenomenon. we invite you to share one of nature’s greatest animal viewing sites with your family – the Galapagos islands. When Charles Darwin arrived ere so many years ago, he too found the animal life intriguing as it showed no fear of humans. Now, you and your family can experience this spectacular wildlife haven for yourself, frolicking amongst the same rare and friendly creatures that captivated him as he formulated his theories on evolution. Snorkel with playful sea lions, walk amongst dancing blue-footed boobies, and relax within an arm’s length of the famed Galapagos tortoise as these ancient creatures feed on the lush vegetation.

The Galapagos Islands are truly a magical place. It is a destination where fun and education coexist seamlessly and it is therefore a wonderful, once in a lifetime experience for children. Because of this, we offer a variety of unrivaled Family Departures.

What makes our family cruises different?

From the first moment that children step on board, they will be warmly greeted as they begin their new, exciting and educational once-in-a-lifetime adventure! We know that kids have a different perspective and see things from their own point of view. We also know what a tremendous positive impact a Galapagos experience can have on children.

As a result, we have put together a truly unique package for families traveling with children on select cruise departures during vacation periods throughout the year. So, read on and immerse yourself in our wonderful Ultimate Family Galapagos Adventures.


Sample Itinerary

The hectic life styles of today’s world have managed to make us drift away from what is truly important: our family. However, we value these family bonds and understand the importance of togetherness, which is why we have created special Family Cruises. The Galapagos provide an exceptional opportunity for parents, children and grandparents alike to enjoy the trip of a lifetime together with activities tailored to each. Family travel has never been easier or as much fun!

Our Family Cruise Departures are filled with days of activities for yourself, your children or your grandchildren so that you can relax together and take in all the wonders that will surround you. Children are especially enriched by the natural living legacy of the archipelago, where science suddenly becomes fun and accessible. Where else can kids safely get so close to so many animals: swimming with sea lions and penguins in the morning or posing with red-footed boobies or an ET look-alike giant tortoise in the afternoon? These departures feature presentations and activities geared toward children of all ages. We provide kid’s meal options. We invite your family to experience a paradise with a full range of exceptional experiences for all, yet parents can relax and return refreshed.
