97% of the Islands comprise the Galapagos National Park. Even staying at different hotels and lodges won’t get you the same coverage of the archipelago as our expedition cruise. We’ve developed a list of the most iconic species in the Galapagos and our itineraries are carefully curated to maximize your exposure to as many of our Big15 as possible.
Our naturalist guides are bilingual, if not multilingual. They are certified by the Galapagos National Park, and are ready to show you exciting species up close and at a distance. Activities abound thanks to low guest-to-guide ratios, which ensure plenty of options! This is just part of what makes this cruise one of the best experiences around!
The Santa Cruz II is a go-to ship for many trusted and well-regarded tourism associations and companies around the world. Our service, accommodations, meals, and activities are first-rate, and we work directly with the Galapagos National Park on lots of conservation and preservation efforts. Also, we help our explorers offset their carbon footprint.
The only way to really appreciate the terrain, underwater views, and temperate climates of the Galapagos Islands is to explore them up close. Experience the otherworldly via coastal hikes, panga (dinghy) and glass-bottom boat rides, snorkeling, swimming, kayaking, and paddleboarding!
Ample indoor and outdoor social areas aboard the Santa Cruz II make for a comfortable and modern experience. You'll feel right at home! And, if you’re prone to seasickness, the Santa Cruz II is as steady as they come, and may just be the perfect Galapagos cruise for you!
Lots of Galapagos National Park-certified bilingual and multilingual naturalist guides accompany up to 90 passengers aboard the Santa Cruz II. With one of the best guest-to-guide ratios in the archipelago, access vast knowledge, ensured safety, personalized attention, and tons of activities.
Santa Cruz II is not only renowned for its exciting expeditions and itineraries, but also its fantastic cuisine and signature cocktails! A gourmet buffet-style restaurant offers delicious and nutritious meals. The staff can prepare alternatives to principal dishes to accommodate any dietary restriction or preference.
With a once-in-a-lifetime experience like this one, you may not always get a second chance to take that incredible photo! Good thing there’s a professional photographer on board and ready to capture key moments! At the end of your expedition, receive information about accessing official photographs from your expedition cruise. Spend less time worrying about the perfect photo and more time exploring. Rest easy knowing there is a medical officer on board and available 24 hours a day.
