3 Night Cruise sailing from Puerto Ayora to Baltra aboard Monserrat. Hotel stays pre-cruise in Quito and Puerto Ayora and post-cruise in Quito.
If you’re looking for a taste of exotic nature, look no further than this trip aboard the Monserrat, our comfort-class vessel for navigating the waters of the Galápagos. Start with a day on land and stay at a beautiful island hotel, the best possible way to start your tour. Snorkelling with sea lions and other aquatic wildlife and taking a trek over volcanic rock will give you both incredible sights and indelible memories.
