HIGHLIGHTS
  • With over two weeks spent on the archipelago, this trip takes a more leisurely pace. Spend more time on each island, soaking up the sun and the sea (lions).
  • Hike, snorkel, sleep, repeat – this isn’t your average cruise. Get active in the rugged and isolated Galapagos Islands.
  • Sea lions are like the dogs of the ocean: playful, goofy and curious. And while you can’t pat them, you’re bound to fall in love with these furry frolickers.
  • Pink flamingos, redthroated frigates and bluefooted boobies will have you craning your neck, snapping photos and contemplating a career in ornithology.
The Absolute Galapagos (Daphne) trip starts from and ends in Quito. It is a sailing, yachting and motor boating tour that takes 17 days taking you through Floreana Island, Espanola Island, Isla Genovesa and 9 other destinations in Ecuador. Absolute Galapagos (Daphne) is a guided small group trip that includes accommodation in hotels, transport, meals and others.

Discover the endemic wildlife, bizarrely beautiful landscapes and underwater treasures of the Galapagos Islands on this immersive 17-day cruise. Explore both the traveller’s favourites and quieter parts of the archipelago, all with a passionate local naturalist on hand to guide you over pahoehoe lava and through marine iguana colonies. Snorkel in clear waters off the coast of Isla Espanola, paddle through a green turtle breeding grove on Isla Floreana, look out for mottled Galapagos hawks on Isla Fernandina, and wander between sea lions lounging on beaches with red, black and white sand.

Milan's review for another Intrepid Travel tour

“The tour was very good. Overall organisation, local and international, as well. The host family were beautiful and helpful people. The food was very nice and the room simple but precisely what we paid for. Only the second day was a bit slow and not really exciting. But otherwise 4 out of 5.”

“Our tour is a group of twenty people. Majorities are Australians. We have good atmosphere and co-operations , especially in preparation and after our daily feedings. We have two tour leaders, nice and hard working guys. Niki is excellent cook.
Different landscapes. lakes and Bungle Bungles let you understand more about this wild Kimberley. If you like hiking,
swimming and drinking Champagne at the same time in the
Lake Agryle, go.”

“I went on this trip with a friend and we really enjoyed it! Tasmania has a lot to offer - rainforests as well as mountains and beaches. We were able to see a lot in just 6 days and our guide was awesome, thanks for this great experience!”
