Golden Galapagos cruises reveal the new Elite
Golden Galapagos Cruises have experienced huge demand since launching its first Galapagos Island itineraries in July last year. The Endemic, a 115-foot ship, was one of the first luxury cruise ships to operate in the world-famous nature reserve.
Tourism around the Unesco world heritage site is strictly regulated with only a handful of commercial ships allowed each season. Its awe-inspiring biodiversity and multiple species of wildlife are rightly considered to be a precious natural wonder.

Together, the Endemic and the Elite make up the most modern luxury vessels to sail around the archipelago. Each has a dedicated cruise service officer who takes care of the guest’s individual requirements while on board. In addition, an experienced nature guide leads the exciting group excursions. This may include visits to lava fields or snorkeling around coral reefs.
The boats themselves are also the height of luxury. Each suite comes with floor-to-ceiling windows to ensure the spectacular views are never far away. The local crew are hand-selected and, with a guest to staff ratio of 1:1, satisfaction is more-or-less a guarantee.
The company was recently rewarded for its environmental efforts by LATA. The Achievement Award for Cruise Operator of the Year was a recognition of the company’s commitment to high-quality cruising and reducing plastic water bottle usage by 25,000 bottles in just over nine months.
