Galapagos Islands cruising: local flights included

#expeditioncruising

 

To celebrate the expansion of their Galapagos Islands cruising portfolio, Australia's Expedition Cruise Specialists is offering free return flights from the South American mainland to the Islands on selected 2018/19 cruising expeditions.

The flights, valued at up to USD $498 per person, are available on five and seven day sailings aboard three of the finest vessels cruising the archipelago, Metropolitan Touring's 90-passenger Santa Cruz II, the intimate yacht La Pinta and the 40-passenger Isabela II.

Travellers can take advantage of the free economy-class flights from either Ecuador's capital Quito or Guayaquil when they book before 30 June 2018, on cruises departing before 28 February 2019 (excludes Christmas and New Year cruise dates).

According to Andrew Castles, General Manager at Expedition Cruise Specialists, the Galapagos Islands rank among the world's most extraordinary wildlife destinations and are 'quickly becoming one of the most sought-after destinations for expedition cruisers'.

Highlights of the expedition cruises include the opportunity for travellers to get up close and personal with wildlife including giant turtles, sea lions, marine iguanas and flamingos. There's hikes ashore across stark volcanic landscapes with local naturalist guides and adventure activities including kayaking, snorkelling and glass bottom boat tours.

Cruises depart weekly, year-round with prices for five-day voyages aboard the Isabela II starting at USD$3,322 per person, twin share.
