A Guide to Organizing a Galapagos Cruise Charter For 2021
With the world starting to open up a bit more, and vaccinations in the U.S. on the rise, travel to the Galapagos Islands is one vacation option that will make your “re-entry” year much more memorable. The archipelago of 18 islands and many more islets hosts a stunning amount of rare and unique wildlife both on land and in the sea. A cruise to the Galapagos will create a lifetime of memories.
A Wealth of Wildlife to See
The Galapagos are home to an amazing ecosystem filled with rare species – and lockdowns only made the environment better. Without as many people around, the animals didn’t have to deal with as much disruption, and more of them have been visible around the islands. If you can go on a cruise now and visit the islands, you may have a chance to see wildlife that isn’t normally there. When you plan your trip to the Galapagos, look for tours and cruises around these areas where rarer species congregate to see if you can get a glimpse of them.
More Room and Time for Different Activities
As time goes on, more tourists will return to the islands, but for now, numbers are still down. That means more places to go with fewer lines and more time for activities like snorkeling or hiking. Lounge on relatively uncrowded beaches and watch the beautiful clear-blue water with gorgeous horizons that you know have fantastic sunrises and sunsets. Speak with different resorts to find out what activities they offer themselves and which private companies are nearby so you have a variety of options available to you.
The Environment Is Always Wonderful
On average, the water surrounding the Galapagos is in the low to mid-70s, which is a wonderful temperature for snorkeling and diving. Even if all you want to do is stay in a boat and cruise around the archipelago, you’ll have a wonderful time as the weather, especially in winter, is usually balmy and comfortable.
Let a Galapagos-Born Captain Help
Tip Top Cruises is run by the family of the original settlers of the Galapagos Islands, native from Floreana, one of the main islands of the Galapagos. If you would like to plan a cruise, having a captain from the islands is especially helpful as you’ll get information that only those who grew up there know. You can still plan a 2021 summer cruise, so contact Tip Top Cruises for more Galapagos Islands information.
