Day Tours

BEFORE YOU BOOK PLEASE SEND A RESERVATION TO TOURS@GALAPAGOSBEST.COM

When Charles Darwin visited the archipelago in 1835, he had no choice but to sleep on his boat, the Beagle.  As he was particularly susceptible to seasickness, he would have preferred a bed on dry ground. Today, visitors to the Galapagos have that luxury, there are a variety of hotels and lodges on four of the islands.

Here at Galapagos Best, we offer land-based tours as well as cruises. On a land-based tour, you stay in a hotel and have the option of traveling by boat during the day to various destinations in the archipelago. Most visitors who opt for a bed on dry ground choose a hotel in Puerto Ayora on Santa Cruz island. Puerto Ayora is the most populated city in the Galapagos with approximately 26,000 inhabitants. As such, it is home to a variety of hotels, shops and restaurants. Galapagos Best can arrange each aspect of your Galapagos land-tour, from your accommodations to your daily excursions. As a tour operator, we get better rates at the hotels than you would as a tourist. Whether you want a 5-star hotel or trendy hostel, let us make your reservation. 

Below you will find information about two of our most recent offerings: our new catamaran yacht, M/C Adriana, and the Galapagos Apart & Suites Hotel. If for any reason there is no availability aboard Adriana we have her sister the “PROMESA YACHT” with a different itinerary.

 

Our Boat - the M/C Adriana

We are thrilled to introduce our new catamaran yacht, M/C Adriana. She began sailing in the Galapagos in 2015. Below you will find her daily schedule. Each day, our crew, as well as a certified, bilingual naturalist guide, will take you on a journey to a unique Galapagos destination. Onboard, you'll find three private bedrooms and bathrooms, a kitchen, and plenty of space to relax while you cruise through the archipelago. The maximum capacity is 16 passengers, and La Adriana is also available for private excursions. You can buy a single day trip or a package deal.

Please contact us for availability and booking.
