30 June – 9 July 2024: 10 days / 9 nights – FULLY BOOKED

If you’re planning a trip of a lifetime to Galapagos, then look no further. We have arranged two 2024 GCT cruises in collaboration with Steppes Travel, offering you a unique experience not found elsewhere.  

With a maximum of 15 paying guests, these cruises will provide an action-packed ten days, during which time you will be introduced to the wonders of Galapagos.

Cruise through the Islands on the luxurious yacht Natural Paradise while watching dolphins, snorkel alongside penguins, and get up close to giant tortoises. From active volcanoes to picturesque beaches, revel in the spectacular scenery the Archipelago has to offer.

Accompanied by a GCT staff member throughout the trip, you will have exclusive opportunities to visit projects and meet passionate experts on the frontline of conservation in Galapagos. What’s more, you will travel in the knowledge that your trip will be helping fund vital work.

We have had the good fortune to join two Galapagos cruises organised by Galapagos Conservation Trust... The opportunity to meet individuals active in conservation and research added an extra dimension. If you plan to visit Galapagos, this is the way.

We would like to thank Steppes Travel and Royal Galapagos (the owners of the boat Natural Paradise) in advance for generously supporting our efforts to raise money for conservation through this cruise.  

Seeing the projects in action was really special and thought provoking, it gave us a different perspective and made us feel part of the conservation of the Galapagos. A trip of a lifetime with simply the best guide.
