Year Round Departures • Price TBA
Join us for this unforgettable wildlife expedition through one of the most diverse and stunningly beautiful marine environments in the world! With your local naturalist guide you spend eight exciting days cruising these islands, snorkeling with colorful fish and taking short day hikes through one of the world’s greatest wildlife and volcanic island environments! Don’t miss this extraordinary opportunity!
No trip to the Galapagos Islands would be complete without a visit to the Amazon Rainforest! Therefore we’ve designed these extension options: your choice of 4 or 5 Days in an Ecuadorian Rainforest Jungle Lodge, enjoying dugout canoe tours led by local experts, traditional cuisine and private baths perched high in your jungle cabins. OR, continue cruising, this time along the Napo River on a Rainforest River Cruise!
I never imagined the beauty, landscapes and wildlife…truly a trip in a lifetime. Great to be with friends. I appreciated all the extra special added by Adventure Associates.

Galápagos — North, West & Central Islands aboard the Yolita
Dates May 22 -31, 2020 • Price $5599 (Upper Deck Twin) $5499 (Main Deck)
The Galápagos Islands – a haven of beautiful landscapes and incredible wildlife. Travelling aboard the Yolita, this tour takes you to some of the lesser-visited islands like Genovesa in the north and Isabela in the west. Expect to witness an amazing concentration of birdlife and massive bird rookeries, including the largest nesting colonies of red-footed boobies and frigatebirds. Hike right to the top of the Sierra Negra, Galápagos’ most recently active volcano, relax on the white-sand beaches and snorkel with sea lions.
THANK YOU! I could not have imagined a better trip. The itinerary, both overall and each day, was perfect. The animals were magical, the guides knowledgeable, having other families on the boat, it was all amazing.
