Curious to explore the Galápagos but don’t have a whole lot of time? Step aboard the roomy Monserrat and join us on this cruising adventure through the archipelago’s central and eastern islands – including an extra day on the island and a stay in a deluxe hotel so you can get the most out of your trip. Snorkel with sea lions, discover the unusual endemic marine life in secluded bays, check out the curious marine iguanas (the only kind in the world that swim for their food), and stroll through the cactus forests of South Plaza Island. With a pair of naturalist guides on hand to answer your questions, you’ll return home more educated and invigorated than you’d ever get from a nature documentary.
