Galapagos Adventure Cruise | Frequent Questions
Frequently Asked Questions
How do I get there?
There are no direct flights between the United States and the Galápagos. You will have to connect via either of Ecuador's two main cities, Quito or Guayaquil. Most international flight schedules will require an overnight stay.
The 8-Day Adventure is just the cruise and includes no mainland hotels, services or transfers. Our signature 10-day Origins of Species tour includes all connecting hotels and transfers. See all Galápagos packages »
