While you may not want to leave the luxurious comfort of your floating accommodations, the islands and nature themselves beckon, drawing you into their spectacular offerings. The first adventure begins at Kicker Rock, just offshore of San Cristobal. Take in the sights from the deck, climb aboard a kayak, or don your wetsuit to dive down and see the marine life up close for yourself.

As you cruise by or explore these various islands, be on the lookout for the incredible wildlife, such as the blue-footed boobies, marine and land iguanas, flamingos, the Galápagos sea lions, and even the charismatic Galápagos penguins. Stroll along gorgeous beaches, snorkel warm waters, hike extinct volcanoes, and wander along winding trails during your island visits as well.
As your thrilling cruise comes to an end, you’ll have one more chance to take in the unique landscape features found here on the Galápagos Islands at Los Gemelos (the Twin Towers) on Santa Cruz Island.
