More than 40 years ago, Enchanted Expeditions pioneered personalized, small-boat cruises in the Galapagos Islands as well as inspiring encounters in Ecuador’s Amazon, Andes and Pacific Coast regions. Their ready-made and custom-designed itineraries are for those seeking a genuine local experience, whether it be culture, wildlife or adventure.
Galapagos cruises are carried out in two modern motor yachts: the 88-foot M/Y Cachalote Explorer and 110-foot M/Y Beluga. Both accommodate a maximum of 16 passengers in eight air-conditioned cabins with private bathrooms and hot/cold showers. The vessels carry the latest safety features, multilingual naturalist guides, Zodiacs, sea kayaks and other watersports equipment. Six, eight and 15-day itineraries are available.
Travelers can complement their cruise and extend their Galapagos stay with a sojourn at Enchanted Galapagos Lodge on Santa Cruz Island. Located in the lush highlands, the resort features10 newly renovated standard and superior bedrooms (all air-conditioned), outdoor swimming pool and hot tub, and large open-air lounges. Just a 15-minute drive from the lively town of Puerto Ayora, the lodge offers the best of both worlds.
Enchanted Expeditions also offers Peru itineraries ranging from Machu Picchu, the Inca Trail and the Sacred Valley to Colca Canyon, Arequipa and Lake Titicaca, as well as adventures in Argentina, Chile and Guyana.
