Family Departures

AUTHOR admin

Travelers with children, teens, and young adults in tow may opt for a designated family departure, created to cater to families with similar-aged children. Family departures are offered during major school breaks and feature exclusive age-appropriate activities that bring the magic of the Galapagos to a multi-generational audience.

During teen family departures, for example, our excursions will be faster in pace and more physically demanding. Expect longer hikes and more kayaking and snorkeling opportunities.
Travelers with teenagers who book on our summer family EPI departures can participate in a cultural exchange with local Galapagueño students through Ecology Project International.

The following 2021 departures are designated as family oriented on one of the two luxury expedition yachts, please inquire at the time of booking:
