Classic Active Galapagos on the Samba

woman & mockingbirds

Designed for the inquisitive and physically fit adventurer.

Some highlights that make this trip unique:

  • What we believe are among the best Galapagos National Park Certified Naturalist Guides that can be found - this is the most critical component to any Galapagos cruise.   The naturalist guides for this charter go out of their way to ensure you have the best possible opportunities to know Galapagos - see our Active Tours details page for more information on the guides.
  • A small group environment on a perfectly suited, well managed and unobtrusive 14 passenger ship. The Samba does not impose itself on the sea and landscapes you are visiting.
  • Snorkeling, snorkeling and MORE snorkeling.  The Galapagos Marine Reserve was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2001 for good reason!  Our guides will take you into the water as often as possible to marvel at the wonderful underwater life.
  • Six kayaks and two paddleboards on board to give you the chance to explore quiet coves and bays - there is no better way to spot sea turtles, reef sharks and other coastal/mangrove ecosystem wildlife.
  • Extra land-based time in Galapagos giving you some personal time to do your own exploring, and a full day trip in Quito (another World Heritage site) to appreciate what is commonly considered to be  the most beautiful historic urban centre in all of South America.
  • A very good price! A stimulating 13 day trip, on an excellent ship, with a top guide, including flights, 5 nights in quality hotels, transfers and more, for a price many will pay for just a 7 day cruise.

Hi Heather:  Thank you for organizing such a wonderful trip!  In our credit card society, I was apprehensive about the cash policy, but once there, the trip couldn't have been better!  Juan was such an excellent guide and we saw so much!  At the Quito airport, I met a lady that had been working at the Darwin center.  She asked what we saw on the Samba. She said she had never heard of a tour that saw everything we did.  She had even worked on a National Geographic tour! Antonio, the guide you arranged for us in Quito, was very knowledgeable and an excellent host! The trip was perfect!

Thanks again,

Rebecca
