COMING SOON:  Comfort++ Active Galapagos Cruises

We first offered the "Active Galapagos" trip in 2003.  From that point onwards, growing demand for the trip led us to offering 2 trips a year at first, to 16 trips a year in 2015, without any form of advertising beyond our website.  This is the ultimate indication of a wonderful Galapagos adventure.

We've used the Samba since 2005, a very well managed and very well maintained ship.   We've never gone back - in large part due to the great reviews the Samba receives from satisfied guests and to the very productive relationship we have with the ship's owner.

However, over the years, we've come to realize that some of you were looking for an "Active Galapagos" trip but on a more spacious ship with the option of twin, or double beds, and that you were willing to consider a higher price for this option.   In 2017, we plan on offering our first "Comfort++ Active Galapagos" cruise - likely with 2 departures in the April/May period.  It will consist of the same 8 day cruise nestled within a 13 day trip, with the option to do "just the cruise" as per your preferences. 

These departures will come at about a US$1,500 premium over the price of the classic Active Galapagos trip on the Samba, due to the higher priced ship we will charter.   

If you'd like us to pencil you in, with the first right of refusal once we get the details nailed down (by early 2016 we hope), please contact me:  hblenkiron@cnhtours.com

Warmest regards,

Heather Blenkiron

Our family holiday on the Samba rates as one of the very best we have ever had!  We loved that every day was filled from before dawn to bedtime with a combination of activities that everyone enjoyed.  Our guide Santiago Moran was exceptional and worked out very quickly what we all enjoyed.  The crew were brilliant and made our stay on board really comfortable.  I had thought the Galapagos would be a once in a lifetime experience but I am now inspired to go  back and explore the NW having loved the SE itinerary.
