Rainforest Cruises Launches Galapagos Islands Tours

  |   Galapagos

Amazon River cruise specialists, Rainforest Cruises, have left the jungle for the first time with the launch of a handpicked selection of cruise tours in the Galapagos Islands.


March 28, 2016– Rainforest Cruises' range of boutique boats includes catamarans and pirate-style sail ships that are environmentally friendly and exclusive, with space for 16 passengers or fewer.

The Galapagos Islands itineraries range from four to 15-days in length, with knowledgeable crews helping guests spot wildlife and leading discovery tours at various stops throughout the Pacific Ocean archipelago. 


We have a hard-earned reputation for high quality trips along the Amazon, and we felt we could do the same for the Galapagos Islands.”

”We’ve selected some of the best expedition ships to provide once-in-a-lifetime adventures in this most iconic of marine habitats. Each day our guests will be taken to new, rich and varied sites where they could be snorkeling among sea turtles, basking with iguanas or relaxing in green meadows alongside giant tortoises.
— Jeremy Clubb, Director of Rainforest Cruises


Eco-Friendly Cruising 
The Galaxy II Eco Catamaran offers some of the most climate friendly cruising around the islands with low fuel consumption, locally sourced food and energy saving features. A five-day cruise takes in the Galapagos Islands from north to south and includes hikes, dingy rides and snorkelling to see colonies of birds, sea lions and iguanas. Prices start from $2,279 per person, based on a five-day cruise. 


Classic Sailing
An exploration of the Galapagos Islands famously helped naturalist Charles Darwin form his theory of evolution, so for a Darwin-eye view of the islands jump aboard an eight-day cruise on the Mary Anne sail ship, a three-mast boat reminiscent of HMS Beagle, the vessel that carried Darwin. The 12-cabin cruiser has space for just 16 passengers. Prices start from $4,969 per person, based on an eight-day cruise. 


Luxury Adventure  
The Cormorant Catamaran combines cruises through the wildlife-rich central and south eastern islands - where guests can swim with marine iguanas and hike across Bartholomew Island for some of the archipelago's best views - with a luxurious boat that features a sun-deck and jacuzzi, stylish suites and state of the art entertainment for relaxing nights. Prices start from $3,949 per person, based on a five-day cruise.
