Galápagos — Central Islands aboard the Xavier III

Four nights cruising through the Galápagos National Park aboard Xavier, snorkelling with sea lions and discovering spectacular marine life in protected bays, finding land iguanas feeding in the cactus forests on South Plaza Island, watching bright-pink flamingos and other sea birds feeding in secluded lagoons.

Encounter the island chain that has enchanted explorers since Darwin first weighed anchor off its shores. Spend four nights exploring the incredible wildlife of the Galápagos archipelago in the company of an expert Naturalist Guide. In the evenings, return to the Xavier to reflect on the day’s adventures. Retire to air-conditioned cabins with exclusive lower berths and private bathrooms. As one of the region’s largest operators, we understand the importance of controlling the onboard experience – that’s why you won’t be sold onto someone else's ship.
