Don’t miss the opportunity to get up close and personal with some of the rarest animal species on earth, such as the Red-lipped Batfish or Galápagos Tortoise.
We offer the most diverse Galapagos cruises, visiting over 30 ports of call across six distinct itineraries on three luxurious ships. Celebrity Flora, Xpedition and Xploration, are compact enough to navigate the islands, with smaller capacities for a more intimate feel. Onboard, rest in your luxuriously appointed room, attend talks by nature experts or look out for whales from the top deck.
Each island has its own unique character and topography. There’s Isla Fernandina, a volcanic island in the heart of the archipelago. Our port on Isla Fernandina is Espinoza Point, which teems with endemic wildlife (look out for the Galapagos Penguin). Then there’s Isla Isabela, which is bigger than all of the other Galapagos islands put together. It’s famous for its tranquil white-sand beaches, mangrove ecosystems and volcanic cones.
On Isla Santiago, you’ll discover the blackened volcanic landscape of Sullivan Bay and the serene, blue-water grottos of Puerto Egas. Next up is Isla Santa Cruz. A Galapagos cruise deal allows you to spot marine life: we’re talking white-tip reef sharks, blue-footed boobies and sea turtles. Check out Baltra, which was used as a military during WWII. Isla Genovesa is nicknamed the Bird Island, as the dramatic cliffs of Darwin Bay provide homes for rare seabirds (don’t forget your camera).
On your Galapagos cruise, visit Isla Floreana to discover the Bahia Post Office, where whalers would leave their letters to be picked up by passing ships. Isla Espanola is famous for its families of sea lions, sunning themselves in Gardner bay. Go hiking in Suarez Point, where you’ll find a blowhole that shoots water 50 feet into the air. Our final Galapagos stop is Isla de San Cristobel, which is the first place Charles Darwin discovered in the 19th century.
