Priced from $3,195 Days: 7 to 11
Cruise the Enchanted Islands aboard the Galapagos Seaman Journey (formerly Journey I), a power catamaran built specifically for navigating the islands. Your 7 - 11 day Galapagos package starts with two nights in Quito, Ecuador, the World Heritage city that sits high in the Andes. You will stay at the La Rabida or similar, located near Old Town in this historic city. The day after your arrival, you're invited on a complimentary guided half day city tour of Quito. As an alternative, add on a day trip to the world famous enormous Otavalo Market where you can shop for high quality hand crafted items.
On the third day, you'll fly from Quito to Baltra or San Cristobel, depending on your itinerary. There, you'll board the Seaman Journey. She offers comfortable accommodations in 6 twin bed cabins on the main deck and two suite cabins on the upper deck. Galapagos Seaman Journey has been awarded Smart Voyager certification, ensuring that the boat complies with the highest levels of social and environmental standards.
You'll cruise through the Galapagos, then return to Quito, where you'll have another night to enjoy the rich culture of this South American city.
