A cruise around the Galapagos Islands is the best way to experience its beauty and diversity. New regulations prohibit larger ships from entering Galápagos waters. The regulations are in place ensure an enhanced traveler experience and to protect the fragile ecosystems of the Galápagos National Park. Galápagos cruisers vary in size and class, and there are about 60 Galápagos yachts and ships in the first class category. Galápagos cruises are normally between 3 and 7 days in length.
