Galápagos Family Voyage

Group Travel | 10 Days
  • A family-friendly cruise, with activity and meal options for all ages
  • Meet giant tortoises, frisky sea lions, marine iguanas, and more
  • Hike volcanic craters, snorkel and kayak coves, and stroll idyllic beaches
  • Stellar naturalist guides, attuned to youngsters

With so much to see and do in the Galápagos, these islands thrill and astonish people of all ages. On our Galápagos Family Voyage we cruise from island to island aboard a comfortable small or mid-size ship, meeting the archipelago’s bewitching residents. Highly trained naturalists, zeroed-in on the customs and interests of young visitors, are there to facilitate and guide us in just the right level of land and water exploration. And though much is to be learned, about ecology and evolution and all that, this Galápagos cruise is above all great fun.

Trip Overview

The trip was outstanding, [our ship] totally wonderful. We had been to Ecuador before, but seeing it through the eyes of our grandchildren was magical. It was the best... Everything moved flawlessly where GeoEx was involved. This is why we seek you out for all of our exotic travel. You do such a great job!
