Our insight

Galapagos cruising

It's hard to be subjective about the Galapagos. At Mundy, it's probably in our top five "must see" destinations; from the comical blue footed booby to the magnificent sweeping wings of the albatross, from the playful fur seals to the dinosaur-like marine iguanas, the wildlife of the Galapagos Islands enthrals and overwhelms its visitors. All are unafraid of man, and will not move when you approach, making this one of the most unique wildlife experiences in the world.

Only Ecuadorian registered vessels can cruise the islands, and they range from small yachts and catamarans carrying ten or twelve passengers, up to larger ships accommodating one hundred guests. Each vessel carries park rangers who are expert naturalist guides, and the locations where tourists are allowed to land are strictly limited.

From June to December the colder Humboldt current flows north to the Galapagos. This means that the water is cooler, and as a result it is often misty, with rain falling on the highlands of the larger islands, making them green and lush. During the warm season between December and May you can expect daily rain and cloudier skies, as well as warmer ocean temperatures for swimming and snorkelling.
