"Jolene asked me to thank you for suggesting the additional couple of nights on the boat. Had we gotten off on day 5 we would have ultimately missed some of the best island visits and the wonderful group dynamic that formed with our ship mates. A surprise was that we were the only Americans on the boat. We thoroughly enjoyed the lively and interesting conversations at meals and are now exchanging photos amongst our group from round the world."
In order to set foot on the uninhabited islands you must be with a Galapagos National Park certified guide. The most cost effective way to do this is by joining a group or forming your own small Galapagos group. We offer boats for 12 to 45 passengers with an emphasis on the 12 to 16 passenger size. The Galapagos National Park limits group sizes on the islands to a maximum of 16 guests plus a certified guide.
Visiting Galapagos as a couple or family is a unique small group experience. Typically our Galapagos yachts have travelers onboard from around the world but primarily from US, Canada, Europe, Australia and Eurasia. Those with interest in a trip like this tend to be enthusiastic about wildlife, hiking and snorkeling, natural history, appreciation of the natural world and a unique style of travel. Many of our guests comment that an unexpected highlight of the trip was the other travelers onboard.
If you have a Galapagos group of 12 to 16 friends or family or even just short of this size consider chartering the boat for just your group. This will give you maximum flexibility on a daily basis throughout your trip.

Benefits of chartering a Galapagos boat
If you are thinking about a land based Galapagos trip there are a few considerations about group size as well. Again a larger group can get a better price than a single traveler just because you are sharing expenses between more people. But a bigger group may have more challenges with transportation getting around and in-between islands.
We're always happy to speak with you about the many options for your group regardless of size.
