The Galapagos Islands provide the ideal setting for a family adventure vacation where young people can observe wildlife close-up, explore the marine life by snorkel, and learn about the basics of evolution. Aboard your vessel of discovery, separate activities are geared toward younger audiences. Kid-friendly meals and child-sized snorkeling equipment, wetsuits, and life vests are all included. The cruise is adapted to fit each family's needs and guided on-shore excursions are oriented towards the interests and knowledge of young people. Discounts are available for children under 12 years of age on certain family departures.
There are several small-yacht options for family travel in the Galapagos with year-round departures including the sister ships Eric/Letty (Friday departures) and the Eclipse (Thursday departures). Ask about other yachts with available family departures. Families can also charter their own private yacht based on availability. Contact our Galapagos Program Director for more information on charters. Please plan at least a year in advance for a private charter.
