A private charter cruise through the Galapagos Islands is the ideal option for a family or group of friends wanting the most personalized Galapagos experience possible. We’ve selected the best yachts, naturalist guides and itineraries to make your journey enjoyable, educational and unforgettable. Our 5- to 8-day private charters are available year round for groups of two to 32 people. For families with young children, we can arrange on-board nannies, children’s menus, child-friendly activities, educational games, movie nights and more. Charter cruises include all meals, transfers, internal flights to and from the Galapagos, and other logistics, as well as everyday essentials such as wetsuits and snorkeling equipment. A private tour director coordinates activities onboard.
We recommend combining a private charter cruise of the Galapagos with time in mainland Ecuador or other South America destinations such as Peru. Contact us for further details.
