Concerns around growing numbers of visitors to the Galapagos have prompted Ecuadorian officials to take measures to protect and conserve the legendary destination. Increased park entrance fees and restricting larger vessels and shorter cruises should reduce the number of visitors to this fragile ecosystem.
I've always believed that the best way to see these Enchanted Islands is on a small boat, carrying a maximum of 18 passengers. It's a close-up and sustainable way to explore this archipelago, and you'll never overcrowd an island.
Recently returned clients had this to say: "Our Galapagos cruise was outstanding. We were on a beautiful Trimaran with just 13 other travel companions. The activities were great, we snorkeled and hiked every day. We swam with sharks, sea lions and other exotic fishes, just beautiful. We saw dolphins jumping and swimming alongside our boat, just like in the movies. The service and food on board was excellent. This trip will certainly be in our memories as being one of the best and most adventurous."
