Evolution Galapagos Cruise
The Galapagos Islands constitute one of the most exciting destinations in the world. Teeming with endemic wildlife, including 100-year old tortoises, it is every nature-lover’s paradise. The Evolution Galapagos cruise sails through this magical archipelago, stopping off on various islands to allow its passengers to get up close and personal with the Galapagos wildlife.
About the Evolution Galapagos Cruise
The Evolution Cruise ship is a mid-sized vessel with 16 luxurious cabins spread out across three floors. Each room is decorated with calming, neutral tones and filled with comfortable furniture to ensure you get a good night’s sleep whilst aboard the ship. But, of course, you will only be spending a fraction of your time in the bedroom.
On the deck of the boat is a pool and sunbathing area where you can put your feet up and relax after a day of exploring. Or, perhaps you would like to indulge in a cold drink at the al fresco bar. Whatever you choose to do will be accompanied by outstanding views of the islands as you float leisurely along the waterways around them. Need a sunhat or binoculars while you’re sitting up there? The Evolution boutique store sells all kinds of goodies and has got you covered if you decide you need anything en route.
When the sun goes down, retreat inside to the main lounge and list to the expert guide debrief about everything you did and saw that day. If you have any questions about the wildlife you saw, feel free to ask him about it – his encyclopedic knowledge of the island’s animals is sure to impress you. The vessel’s reception is also in this part of the boat and the attentive staff here are willing to help you with anything you might need during your trip.
When hunger strikes, there is only one place to be – the ship’s dining room. Here, you will be able to feast on local and international delicacies, freshly prepared by the boat’s talented chef. Buffet breakfasts and lunches are laid out each day to energize you for the day ahead. In the evenings a sumptuous dinner is served, complemented by platters of exotic fruits. There’s no better way to refuel after a busy day of activities on the Galapagos Islands.
Evolution Cruise Itineraries
The Evolution offers two completely separate itineraries, each showing passengers different parts of the archipelago. Although they both last eight days and seven nights, they are unique in all other ways. The first will take you through the western islands and includes stops on Daphne, Isabela, Fernandina, and Santiago Islands - just to name a few. This gives you ample opportunity to ogle at the wildlife, snorkel and hike before returning to the ship in the evening. Highlights include spotting Galapagos penguins at Pinnacle Rock; and snorkeling at Urbina Bay.
The second itinerary offered by the Evolution sails through the eastern islands, including Genovesa, San Cristobal, Floreana and more. Isla Lobos, known in English as Sea Lion Island certainly lives up to its name and is one of the first places you will visit on your itinerary. Later in the trip passengers will stop off at Floreana so you can discover the history of the island’s pirates, convicts and mysterious post box. Make sure your camera is fully charged every day as you will definitely want to snap photos of the sea lions, sea turtles, white-tipped reef sharks, marine iguanas and myriad of different birds that you see along the way.
Whichever itinerary you choose, you are guaranteed to have the most amazing experience of your life. Each trip gives you a profound insight into what makes these islands so legendary. The Galapagos Islands are truly a bucket list destination and it isn’t hard to see why. With beautiful scenery and wildlife abound, you’ll wish you never had to leave.
