Family Cruises on board the Evolution are designed for you to enjoy your Galapagos adventure in the company of your family. These Galapagos cruises are filled with days of activities for you, 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, accessible and unforgettable.

Child-friendly Naturalists

For all of our family cruises, the most knowledgeable and child-friendly guides have been chosen. These guides like children and are experienced with them. They have that special understanding and patience for them. Many of them are themselves parents, and are attentive to the needs of children and are sure to make your children or grandchildren enjoy these islands to the fullest.

Young Explorer’s Club

All children under 12 years of age will receive a kids version of the regular expedition journal that all guests receive. These expedition journals are specifically tailored to the learning of children and contain several activities like coloring, question-answering, and mind games. All explanations are specifically geared to capture the interest of children and to facilitate their understanding about what they will see throughout their cruise.

Menus for Children

All of our chefs onboard are experts in preparing children’s menus. During our family cruises, our chefs will prepare an array of menus for children to enjoy, which include foods like chicken and fish fingers, pizza, french fires, hot dogs, ham & cheese sandwiches, etc.


Snorkeling is one of the favorite activities for parents, grandparents and children alike. A Family Cruise has at least one snorkeling excursion each day and our snorkeling destinations are chosen according to your family’s skill level. Our locations vary from sites for beginners, to locations for more advanced snorkelers. This activity is a must for the entire family!


Our double sit-on-top sea kayaks are available free of charge. These are great for exploring the cliffs and shores of the various visiting points. You can wander the waters of the Islands with your family in search for some exciting creatures and also get some exercise with this unique activity.

Star-gazing nights

Our family departures are all led by our best child-oriented guides who are also very knowledgeable about astronomy. On particular nights during the cruise, our guides will take children and adults out to the sundeck where they will explain about the stars and constellations of the southern hemisphere. The crystal clear skies of Galapagos are ideal for this activity.
