Heads up! Cruising the Galapagos Islands

If you have been considering a small boat cruise of the Galapagos Islands, there have been several recent developments that make the remainder of 2011 prime time for this destination. We returned from an excursion on the MV EVOLUTION (Galapagos Cruises from Quasar Expeditions) in May. So I can heartily recommend a cruise on the Galapagos EVOLUTION.

 AdventureSmith Explorations recently announced a special “Two for One Galapagos Cruise” for late summer /early fall on the 32-Passenger Galapagos EVOLUTION. 

Dates for these special cruises are Aug. 25-Sept. 4, Sept. 8-18, Sept. 15-25 and Sept. 22-Oct.1. The packages begin and end in colonial Quito, Ecuador, include an 8 day / 7 night Galapagos cruise, pre and post cruise Quito hotel accommodations, airport/hotel transfers, round trip flights from mainland Ecuador to the Galapagos Islands and a half day tour of the Quito’s old town, a UNESCO designated World Heritage Site.

Departures (guaranteed when 16 guests have signed up for the program) start at $5,895 for the first traveler with the companion paying only $1,100 for extras (in-country air tickets, transit control card and park entrance fees) exclusive of the cruise rate. Phone: 800-728-2875 toll-free or 530-583-1775.
