OUR GALAPAGOS DAY TOURS

We operate set, daily departures aboard our yacht to the following, official visitor sites within the National Park. Be aware that there are only 12 yachts in the archipelago that have the Galapagos National Park permits to do so! Our Sea Lion Yacht is one of the few that has two naturalist guides onboard (as opposed to just one), meaning you’ll enjoy better service, greater site interpretation, and overall safety.
Galapagos Day Tours aboard the Sea Lion Yacht also come complete with an onboard Chef (focused on providing you with a wholesome and hot lunch) as well as an entire crew dedicated to making sure the journey to your island of choice goes as smoothly as possible. Each tour provides opportunities to observe wildlife from our Big 15 list of iconic species!

THE MAIN PRIORITY ABOARD OUR GALAPAGOS DAY TOURS

Safety is our main priority throughout the Galapagos Day Tours we offer, and we kindly ask guests for their cooperation. Aboard the Sea Lion Yacht, we have life rafts and life jackets, the latter of which we require our guests to use when traveling aboard our panga (dinghy) to and from Galapagos National Park visitor sites. An initial boat drill exercise is held aboard the yacht at the beginning of each of our Galapagos Day Tours.
