Thinking about a last-minute Galapagos adventure . . . .?
The Angelito Galapagos Cruise has 2 last-minute spaces available on their April 7 – 14 cruise. This is one of the most highly regarded tourist-class boats in the Galapagos and on these dates, the Angelito will be visiting some of the best wildlife sites in the Islands. There also is a last-minute deal for this cruise that saves you $125 per person.
The Angelito cruise is a family-run operation and the naturalist guides are always one of the owners. Each of them has been guiding in the Galapagos for over 20 years and their love for the Islands really makes the trip even more fascinating. The boat itself is simple but very well-maintained (perfect for those who don’t need a lot of frills). Each double cabin has air conditioning and it’s own private bathroom; there are also ample communal spaces on board for relaxing, dining or even watching for wildlife while cruising.
On this cruise, you’ll be visiting some of the most remote sites in the Galapagos, where it’s possible to see the stunning wildlife displays both on land and underwater. On Bartolome, you may be snorkeling with playful sea lions and Galapagos penguins as they “fly” through the water. A visit to Genovesa Island is memorable because of the hundreds of nesting boobies mingling with frigate birds inflating their massive red neck pouches. Espanola Island is home to massive and brightly colored land iguanas as well as the famous waved albatross. The remote Espanola Island is the only place on earth where these beautiful and goofy birds mate, nest and raise their young. Albatrosses mate for life and each April they return to Espanola to find their mate again; their ritual mating dance is one of the most unusual and charming sights to witness in the Galapagos.
