Our Galapagos Fleet

Galapagos is all about close encounters with wildlife. This, plus its extreme diversity, makes it one of the most fascinating wildlife destinations on our planet.

The best way to explore it using a ship to navigate from Island to island.

New Paths Expeditions Galapagos small-ship fleet is composed of four upscale 16-guest ships. This is the ideal ship size for Galapagos because, by local regulations, only 16 guests can disembarkk at any given monet at each landing point of any of the Islands. This means no waiting for your turn on board the ship, and more time exploring the Islands and enjoying close encounters with its iconic wildlife.

All our ships are stabalized, each cabin has balconies, services and food are by far the best of any ship navigating the galapagos waters, and our local naturalists and Senior Leaders are NPE certified, meaning that they are the best without a doubt.

Check our ships below. We have fixed departures on expeditions that go from 4 to 14 nights, and they can also be chartered. (If you are overwellmed by the many itinerary options, please contact our Galapagos experts for advice by clicking here)
