What sets us apart

97% of the Islands comprise the Galapagos National Park. Within the archipelago there are numerous native and endemic species. Since only about four of the islands have human populations, even staying at different hotels and lodges on each of these won’t get you the same coverage as our expedition cruise. With the input of several scientists, researchers, and experts, we’ve developed a list of the 15 most iconic species in the Galapagos, appropriately called the Big15. Each of our itineraries is carefully curated to maximize your observation of as many of these incredible creatures as possible.

All of our guides are certified by the Galapagos National Park. They are bilingual -if not multilingual-, and have tons of experience working in this precious UNESCO World Heritage Site and Biosphere Reserve. With intimate knowledge of Park Rules, you know you’ll be in good hands when it comes to safety and when it comes to finding and identifying species up close and at a distance. Also, activities abound thanks to low guest-to-guide ratios, which ensure that you’ll have options! Perhaps you want to snorkel instead of hike or kayak instead of swim? No problem. This is just part of what makes this cruise one of the best experiences around!

Yacht La Pinta is one of the most reliably comfortable expedition cruise experiences in the Galapagos Islands. A trusted partner of tourism associations throughout the world, our 24-cabin yacht accommodates up to 48 passengers and features ample and elegant spaces. Known for the quality of our service, accommodations, meals, and activities, it’s no wonder so many explorers have felt so satisfied with everything that our experience in the Galapagos has to offer them. We work hand-in-hand with the Galapagos National Park in conservation and preservation efforts, while also offering our explorers the chance to offset the carbon footprint generated by their travels in Ecuador.


One of the very best times of the year to visit the Enchanted Isles
