A cruise is the best way to visit the Galapagos Islands but once the cruise is over, the adventure doesn’t have to end. The quiet beaches and tranquil atmosphere of this bucket list destination makes it an ideal place to relax for a few days more.
During that post-cruise R and R, if you still feel the need for some adventure, you can go for hikes in the unique habitats of the islands, take more pictures of the Giant Tortoise, and enjoy romantic dinners with that special person. However, one of the most exciting things to do after a cruise is exploring the waters around the islands.
The marine environments of the Galapagos host more life than the dry forests and unique volcanic landscapes up on the islands. The best way to experience the beautiful waters of the Galapagos is with dive tours that take in the underwater sights in the bays and around the reefs of this exciting destination.
While many a cruise results in sightings of rays, sharks, sea turtles, and other marine wildlife seen from the ship and while snorkeling, dive beneath the waves of the Galapagos and you will see those animals, colorful reef fish, and other wildlife, sometimes face to face!
It’s easy to sign up for dive tours right after the cruise, and there are several options. A dive tour is also a wonderful way to finish off a fantastic trip to Ecuador.
