Galápagos — South Islands aboard the Xavier III

Four nights cruising through Galápagos National Park aboard Xavier, Encounter bright-pink flamingos feeding in hidden lagoons, Snorkel along colourful reefs searching for sea turtles and playful sea lions, See marine iguanas sunning themselves on the rocks and playing in the surf

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 end up on another operator's ship.
