From the Arctic and Antarctic, to the Galapagos Islands, Canada, Alaska and Mexico, our collection of wildlife cruises offer a spectacular way to witness some of the world’s most exciting wildlife events.
Since we began in 1992, we have created literally thousands of tailor-made wildlife holidays for people from all walks of life. We like to sum up what we do in 3 ways…
A charter in the Galapagos Islands offer the most exciting diving experience ever. A diving cruise offers several dives each day combined with land visits to the islands. However, with Galapagos Charters, you’ll discover that life above the water offers as much variety as the one below. Even night dives are offered when conditions permit. We recommend that you have some dive experience when contemplating a diving vacation with Galapagos Charters. You should bring an up to date diving certificate, wet suit, BC and regulator, weights and weight belts.
We at Galapagos Charters are very excited about this opportunity that we’re able to present to you. Please, take advantage of our 25 plus years of experience in the Galapagos Islands’ diving travel specialty.
The reason that you charter one of our cruises to the Galapagos is to experience the islands and their unique flora and fauna. Therefore, we have designed the programs is such a way that they allow you to enjoy the Galapagos Islands from different perspectives: Galapagos diving, guided hikes, relaxing beach walks, snorkeling and swimming! The islands are visited daily and the visits always involve a leisurely hike in a small group led by your own naturalist guide, allowing you to experience close encounters with nature.
Charter a cruise or yacht and its guides and dive masters will present scientific conferences and other nature topics that will enhance you and your groups knowledge about the Galapagos islands.
Galapagos diving is an extremely rare opportunity. Experience the wonders of Galapagos’ pristine marine reserve any day of the year. Diving is a privilege. Take it; it’s an experience of a lifetime!
On certain mornings, the Galapagos Islands offer great opportunities for whale watching! Our cruise charters are the perfect place to see some spectacular sites. Make sure to ask for a wake up call the night before.
Since the Galapagos Islands offer cloudless skies most of the year, stargazing is not to be missed. Charter a cruise and get away from the lights of the big city to enjoy the dazzling light of the stars as they dance with brilliance across the Islands’ night sky.
The Galapagos Islands are located on the Equator and its climate is sub-tropical, allowing our cruises to operate on a year round basis. Temperatures are determined almost entirely by the ocean currents that are influenced by the trade winds. Generally, December to May is warm and sunny; June to November is cool and breezy.
