Activities
PANGA RIDES

Pangas (inflatable dinghies) are the main means of accessing the different islands from larger vessels, but excursions by panga also provide a front row seat for exploring cliff faces, rocky islets, mangrove estuaries and hidden bays


KAYAK

Slowly paddling under your own steam is another popular way to experience the islands, with kayaks provided complimentary on some Galapagos Island cruises. With the absence of motor noise and a low vantage point, kayaking excursions offer up-close wildlife encounters and the freedom to follow your curiosity and explore at leisure.

HIKES

Daily hikes led by Galapagos National Park naturalist guides offer a unique insight into the wildlife, geological history and human endeavors of the islands, following clearly marked trails. Most range from one to three hours and are suitable for all ages and fitness levels, with optional extensions for those interested in hiking longer.

SNORKEL

Snorkeling excursions allow visitors to head below the water’s surface and discover the incredible marine life for which the Galapagos are renowned. Little or no experience is required, with instruction and all gear available as part of cruise itineraries.

SCUBA DIVING

Scuba diving is an undeniable highlight for those with certification, venturing into deeper waters for drift dives along steep walls or exploring the boulder-strewn ocean floor.

Home to some of the most beautiful and unique wildlife in the world, The Galapagos Islands are a definite bucket list destination for so many.
