A favorite cruise among past travelers; the Golondrina Galapagos yacht provides affordable rates and in-depth itineraries for guests looking for the adventure of a lifetime. Their five-day itinerary covering the west loop of the Galapagos, rare in cruises of all classes, marks the appeal and variety found within programs. A cost-effective way of cruising the islands, Golondrina Galapagos yacht has proven over and over to be an excellent choice. A spacious and beautifully appointed cruise that offers guests with clean and unobtrusive amenities. One of the few yachts in the islands to offer a five-day tour covering the west loop; a rare commodity as most cruises tend to cover this portion of the islands on eight-day programs. Lastly, a professional and welcoming staff awaits your arrival, ready to make the most of your journey and assist you every step of the way.

The Golondrina Galapagos yacht balances perfectly indoor and outdoor areas, affording guests plenty of places to find a corner on their ship to enjoy the spectacular Galapagos views and unwind between excursions in the afternoon. Soak up the equatorial rays on the sundeck solarium while watching Galapagos wildlife pass by, and enjoy stunning sunsets and stars in the evening. Additionally, the shaded lounge area is perfect for enjoying a snack, feeling the sea breeze, and mingling with the other guests.

Heading into the interior, guests have a classicly decorated salon area with wood finishes, plenty of furnishing, and a flatscreen television with DVD for enjoyment. Nearby, enjoy the full bar stocked with international and local liquors, beer, and fine wines. The dining experience of the Golondrina Galapagos yacht is exquisite, with a professional sous chef preparing three daily meals using local ingredients. Enjoy the best of international cuisine, along with local specialities and fresh seafood. These meals are typically served buffet-style, allowing guests to eat until satisfied.

The Itineraries of the Golondrina Galapagos yacht really stand out, holding itinerary options not typically found on other cruises. Among them, the five-day western loop which explores much of Isabela Island, which holds the Sierra Negra volcano, bountiful marine species including whales, penguins, and dolphins, and a land rich area with wildlife species like the wild tortoises. The Golondrina has many other itinerary options, with durations of four to eight days all of which are combinable for extended stays.

Leading you throughout the adventure is your Galapagos natural park guide, a veteran of the trade with knowledge of every inch of the park. He is extremely entertaining and always friendly, taking your safety as a priority at all times.

Janusz Mirowski

Hi Alik, We finally reached our home, after traveling 3 countries on 2 continents. Regarding our cruise on “Golondrina” we were very happy with this trip and would recommend it to our friends, for this price range. This trip was for us great experience in Galapagos and specially in their flora and fauna. Thank you again for your and your co-workers hard work to make our trip to Equateur very memorable experience. Best Regards, Gabriela and Janusz Mirowski
