Traveling Solo? Why Now is a Perfect Time to visit Galapagos with Ecoventura

AUTHOR Daniel Andino

When many people think of cruises, they think of romantic getaways, or action-packed adventures with the family. Less often do people think of a cruise as an ideal vacation for solo travelers.

We at Ecoventura are here to change that!

If you are eager to explore the Galapagos Islands, but traveling by yourself, here are a few things to consider:

There is much to explore as a solo traveler with Ecoventura:

Whether it’s paddle boarding, snorkeling, exploring the Galapagos National Park, relaxing on our sun deck, or enjoying regional meals from our renowned chefs, you will never be bored during your cruise with Ecoventura.

And the best part of solo travel? You can do whatever it is that YOU want to do!

Just learn more from one of our happy passengers, Jean Holy Smithereens, who was a guest on board our luxury yacht, the MV ORIGIN: Luxury Cruising in the Galapagos with Ecoventura’s MV Origin


Cruising with Ecoventura is a great way to meet other travelers:

Traveling solo with Ecoventura is anything but lonely! Our dedicated staff is always waiting on board to welcome passengers back after a long day snorkeling or hiking, with refreshments and snacks in-hand to enjoy on our beloved sun decks. With these down times on the boat, daily excursions, and meals enjoyed in our sociable dining area, there are so many opportunities to make friends with other passengers during your cruise.


It’s not expensive to travel solo with Ecoventura:

Traveling solo on a yacht cruise in the Galapagos Islands does not have to be expensive.  Larger cruise lines have been marketing to singles by providing smaller (often inside) staterooms for guests traveling solo without the dreaded “single supplement.” Let’s face it, a single occupancy fare can put a big dent in the travel budget and why would you want to pay for someone else when you are traveling alone?

Ecoventura is able to waive the single supplement and provide a regular double occupancy cabin on selected departures for solo travelers. For all remaining 2016 departure dates on the ORIGIN, Eric & Letty, we are offering a single cabin best available with no supplement

For 2017, we are able to confirm a single cabin on the MV ORIGIN on all seasonal departure dates with no supplement.  On the peak departure dates, we can offer a single cabin, albeit at the single rate or we can offer to match the guest with a same sex roommate to avoid the single supplement.

Interested in exploring the Galapagos Islands with Ecoventura as a solo traveler? Book your cruise with us today! We still have some excellent travel discounts on our Fall 2016 and Winter 2017 departures and they are booking up fast. Don’t miss out on the adventure of a lifetime.
