PETREL

PETREL favorite_outline 

The best way to see the Galapagos Islands is on board a luxury cruise.  On the Petrel, guests travel in comfort to the different islands, where they have up-close encounters with blue-footed boobies, iguanas, giant tortoises, whales and more. It offers a deluxe way to visit these magical islands. A motorized catamaran, the Petrel is designed for comfort and stability and is outfitted with spacious cabins, a comfortable lounge, and Jacuzzi. On the Petrel, we emphasize the remarkable Natural History of Galapagos, selecting guides who are knowledgeable about biology and ecology in addition to having excellent language skills and client reviews.

Our family of four very much enjoyed our week on the Petrel (kids were 9&12). Outside of all the incredible species to observe in the Galapagos, we especially loved our unplugged family time together (stargazing, reading, playing board games etc.). I have a couple of videos of The Petrel as well as a detailed account of our experience on my family travel website Pint Size Pilot. You can find it here: https://pintsizepilot.com/best-galapagos-luxury-cruise-family-vacation/

Cruise Date: 15 March 2017 for 8 days.
