Thematic Focus in the Galapagos (8 -day excursion)
Regarding your interest about how visits and excursions are organized during the cruise; You will start very early in the morning, around 7am.
After breakfast you will have the first visit to the islands, this can be either a wet or dry landing. Each visit takes lasts around 2 to 3 hours, and then you will have time either to swim, lay on the beach or snorkel.
You will have about an hour to rest before lunch and then about 30 minutes to relax before your second visit to a different location. Once again, it can be a wet or dry landing, usually the second visit is a longer hike (the sun is not hitting as hard as in the morning), after which you will either rest, swim or snorkel depending on the location you are in that particular day. In the evening before or after dinner you will have leisure where the guide will review what you have seen and where you have been that day, and will also give you an explanation of the schedule and visits for the next day. All navigation takes place during the night.
The longer it takes from one island to the other is 7 – 8 hours, so when morning comes you are in a different island ready for new visit and excursions.
