Life on board the Galapagos Voyager

Life on board the Galapagos Voyager

A buffet breakfast is served from about 7am, before you prepare for your first excursion of the day. As the yacht sails at night, you are already close to the island that you will be visiting. At about 8.30am, the passengers on board will gather with the guide and board the pangas for the short trip to the island. You will have either a wet or a dry landing, and then explore the island. The guide will explain the flora, fauna and geology of the island as you walk. As each island is different, each excursion will focus on different aspects of the Galapagos Islands. After you have explored the island, you will usually have an opportunity to snorkel off the beach. This may be snorkelling with sea lions, tropical fish, or even with marine iguanas and penguins.

You return to the Galapagos Voyager in the late morning, for a shower and change before a buffet lunch is served. After lunch, you will sail to the next island, and you will have time for a rest, or maybe to look out for dolphins or frigate birds from deck.

At around 3pm, you will again take a panga ride for your second excursion of the day. You return to the yacht in the late afternoon, where you have time for a drink before dinner as the guide explains the itinerary for the next day. After a buffet dinner, you can relax in the lounge or on deck. The yacht will usually sail at night to make sure you arrive at the next island early the next morning.

The guide on the Galapagos Voyager can sometimes arrange additional snorkelling excursions off the Voyager, for example near Genovesa, where you can sometimes see hammerhead sharks.
