The Galapagos Islands are truly a magical place. It is a destination where fun and education coexist seamlessly and it is therefore a wonderful, once in a lifetime experience for children. Because of this, we offer unrivalled fixed Family Departures.
Our Child Coordinator will prepare activities for kids throughout the week including special briefings, meal times and menus, educational activities, and much more. We prepare colorful, kid-friendly cabins and also give children special gifts throughout the week. When we have at least 10 children on board, they can even have their own guide during excursions.
On the Eclipse, children will get a Galapagos experience like no other in the archipelago.
According to National Park regulations, kayaking is only permitted at certain sites with a maximum number of 8 passengers in 4 double kayaks. Kayaking takes place before or after island excursions and this is one of the best ways to live Galapagos and its ecosystem to experience nature in its purest form.
Lectures and briefings
The expedition leader and the guides will give nightly lectures about the islands, in addition to briefings on the next day’s activities.
Most of the snorkeling activities take place before or after island excursions, so that you will not miss the hikes. It is an optional activity while the rest of the passengers stay on board or on the beach.
If you would like to learn about the equatorial night skies, your guides will be happy to join you for stargazing on the Sun Deck (December to April) or climate conditions are appropriate to make this activity.
Although sightings are not guaranteed, with a keen eye and some luck you may see some whales during your cruise, especially between June and September.
