Land Based Vs Liveaboard VacationsCormorant Galapagos cruise

Although traveling the enchanted archipelago on board an expedition cruise is the most efficient and extensive manner to enjoy the wildlife marvels during your Galapagos vacations. Land-based tour programs or “Island Hopping” tours have become a popular alternative in the past few years; especially for travelers that do not wish to take sailing trips for a variety of reasons, among them the effect of sea-sickness on board and the fact that boat vacations are a bit pricy in comparison to a hotel based-tour.

Galapagos HotelsWhen cruising the islands, you have the opportunity to visit a larger variety of sites, mostly on uninhabited Islands where untamed wildlife prevails and the fact that you have two excursions, one in the morning and one in the afternoon, then overnight at your boat. On the other hand, land-tours offer the possibility to explore the best visitor sites on populated Islands: Santa Cruz, San Cristobal and Isabela plus day-visits to nearby Islands like Bartolome, Plazas, North Seymour with overnight stay at wonderful hotels and nature lodges on different categories and daily speed-boat rides to the sites with professional bilingual guides; land-based tours are also a great way to enjoy occasional diving day-tours.

Options for boat vacations and island hopping tours are quite abundant, the decision depends on your specific preferences, budget, time for tour and physical condition; Voyagers Travel can surely guide you on how to decide which option is best for you to enjoy a fascinating expedition trip.
