With more than two decades of experience, Golden Galapagos is a full-service cruise operator specialized in luxury cruises in the Galapagos Islands and top experiential travel on mainland Ecuador. Headquartered in Quito, Ecuador, and having two operations offices in the Galapagos archipelago, Golden Galapagos owns and operates four luxury Catamarans in the Islands: M/C Endemic, M/C Elite, M/C Ocean Spray and M/C Petrel. These next-generation luxury catamarans were custom designed and built based on the demands of our discerning guests, setting a new standard for luxury cruises in the Galapagos. Our catamarans are spacious, comfortable, and eminently seaworthy, featuring panoramic views of the islands from all interior areas and from the comfort of each suite. The private outdoor balconies and sweeping ocean views enjoyed from each suite inspire travelers to form a more intimate bond with the islands and their incredible wildlife. Our premium vessels gather the best essential features to our guests, delivering the ultimate luxury experience while sailing in the remote Galapagos Islands. Our cruises are painstakingly planned based on the input and feedback of our guests, destination experts, captains, and experienced crew members. The Endemic, Elite, Ocean Spray and Petrel all offer enviable, unique and well-thought-out itineraries, all of which are guided by top-ranked, experienced guides – after all, we specialize in providing a unique and unforgettable travel experience for each one of our guests! During the pandemic, Golden Galapagos Cruises continued to send travelers on cruise vacations in small groups and charters. While national travel restrictions meant that no visitors could travel to the Galapagos from April to November 2020, the company has been active and running cruises since the restrictions were lifted. Regardless of the severe difficulties facing the tourism industry in general, we set sail on every departure date set, navigating with as few as four passengers! Currently, our entire luxury fleet is operating normally and providing unforgettable cruises in the stunning Galapagos Islands.
