The Elite is a luxury catamaran set to launch in September, 2019. The Elite is the sister vessel to the Endemic. It will have the exact same level of luxury. This vessel will be an awesome choice for cruising the Galapagos Islands. In this article I’ll highlight the main features of the Elite. I’ll also go over how you can plan your flights for your cruise of the Galapagos based on Elite’s itinerary. And since connecting flights can be so tricky, I’ll give you the flight information to help you to make a smooth trip to the Galapagos Islands.

A Galapagos cruise could very well be one of the most memorable times of your life. This little volcanic archipelago in the middle of nowhere has truly one-of-a-kind wildlife and an incredible history. It's one of those rare places where you get that perfect mix of bizarre, incredible, and 100% unique. Combining an amazing place like the Galapagos Islands with a luxury cruise? It doesn't get any better than that. The tricky part is deciding which cruise to go for. There are a lot of vessels that can take you exploring seemingly prehistoric world, all with their own pros and cons.

The Galapagos Islands are amazing on many levels. The climate is remarkably comfortable for being so close to the equator. The islands themselves were formed by presently-active volcanoes that command respect and truly impress. The ocean and beaches are beautiful. Really, though, it's animals that make the visit unforgettable. The Galapagos Islands are home to loads of endemic species. That means that they're not found anywhere else in the world. The animals here are actually extremely comfortable around humans; they haven't developed a fear of being hunted that animals in other areas have. Let's go over some of the highlights of what awesome animals you can expect to see in the Galapagos.

Previously, the Ecuadorian government was planning on making travel insurance a requirement for entering mainland Ecuador. That has since been cancelled and you will not need to demonstrate proof of travel insurance to enter Ecuador. Entering the Galapagos, however, is another story. The latest news (as of me writing this post) is that travel insurance will at some point be a requirement, but there is no information regarding when this will be enforced. This is part of a very long series of enforcement dates that have been pushed back. It was supposed to be going into effect as of November 1st, but now we basically just don't know when this will be mandatory.

Selfies with giant tortoises, marine iguanas and blue-footed boobies while you're on a trip to the Galapagos are definitely Instagram-worthy. Besides plastering social media with mind-blowing photos of the islands, sometimes you simply need to be in contact with the outside world. So what's the Galapagos cell phone coverage like throughout the archipelago? Cell coverage can be spotty. Generally the populated areas have decent coverage, but the uninhabited islands and open ocean are typically out of range. In this article I'll outline what to expect, and what options you have.

Food and travel; one of the most natural pairings of the universe. So with a destination as amazing as the Galapagos Islands, what can you expect to experience for cuisine? In this post we'll go over what's offered on Galapagos cruises - one traveler to another 😁 There's one thing I've learned from my traveling around the world. If you let a great chef cook a meal that he grew up eating, he'll knock it out of the park every time. Ecuador has some amazing dishes that are truly unique to this country. Traditional coastal foods do a great job of showcasing what can come from the ocean. A cruise is quite possibly the best setting to enjoy seafood! Let me introduce you to some traditional Ecuadorian foods that I've absolutely fallen in love with!

You're planning a trip to the Galapagos and you don't want to be the one that has to do the "unpack of shame" at the airport. How do you pack light and make sure your clothes match the weather? The short answer is to bring light clothing that is quick drying, layerable, and gives you good coverage from the sun. Read on, though, for detailed and specific information on exactly the kind of clothing that will let you pack light and be as comfortable as possible in the Galapagos Islands!

Let’s face it – cruises are awesome. Even if they’re just a few days, they’re memorable for years, and well worth all the desktop background pictures at work! When it comes to choosing an actual cruise, though, there are tons of destinations to choose from. Does it matter where you go? Yes. Different cruise destinations offer totally different experiences. You could hardly find more of a contrast between the eco-friendly Galapagos and the glamorous Caribbean.

by on June 1, 2018
There are 21 volcanoes in the Galapagos Islands that emerge from the ocean and form the Archipelago. Of these, 13 volcanoes are active! Ever since Charles Darwin showed up here in 1835, there have been over 60 recorded eruptions on 6 of the volcanoes. Many people are fascinated by how such a delicate ecosystem - complete with its own micro climate - exists in such a volatile place! Historically, the critically endangered wildlife of the Galapagos has always been on the brink of destruction.
