Tour Description

Enjoy your Galapagos Islands vacation in style aboard Grace, the luxurious and intimate yacht that was gifted to Princess Grace and Prince Rainier of Monaco for their wedding. This small ship comfortably caters for 18 guests on an 8 day Galapagos cruise that takes in all the natural wonders of these captivating islands.

Begin your journey on Santa Cruz, including a visit to Charles Darwin Research Station to see the Giant Tortoises, a highlight for most when they visit Galapagos. On Floreana Island to spot flamingos, and snorkel the amazing Devils Crown, one of the best places to snorkel in the Galapagos. Observe marine iguanas, Nazca and blued footed boobies, plus the famous waved albatross on Espanola Island, then laze with sea lions on the sandy shores of Gardner Bay. At Isla Lobos you will have the opportunity to snorkel with inquisitive sea lions and marvel at impressive Kicker Rock that juts dramatically from the ocean. Close encounters with the local fauna continue in the following days of your Galapagos cruise as you explore on foot, by dinghy, kayak or from the Grace itself.

Continuing on your luxury Galapagos cruise you will be spellbound by the contrasting landscapes -  lava tubes, the red beach and cliffs of Rabida Island and explore it's sea caves, and hike to the summit of the extinct volcano on Bartolome Island to take in spectacular views. Snorkelling gear and kayaks are available to use throughout your cruise and Zodiac excursions with our expert guide will captivate you with tales of this incredible land.
