The Galapagos Islands have become an increasing popular tourist destination. For this reason, cruises in the archipelago book out months (even up to a year) in advance (particularly on board reasonably-priced cruise yachts). We recommend booking your cruise as early as possible, particularly for high season (May through to September; December and January) cruises. Leaving it until the last minute will result in limit or no cruise options.
