Stay Home Now, Travel Tomorrow

Are you starting to go a little stir crazy from sheltering in place, and day dreaming about the time you can get out and explore the world? Us too!

If you have a little extra cash to play with, now is a great time to book a trip to the Galapagos Islands! There are loads of discounted cruises for later this year. If you don’t have any spare cash, you can still plan your dream trip that you’re going to take in the future! We’re here to help you.

There are a lot of unknowns right now. Because of this, there are quite a few Galapagos cruises that are relaxing their booking and cancellation policies. Some are waiving the deposits, some are allowing cancellation up to a month before the trip without penalties.

We partner with lots of small, locally run trip outfitters in the Galapagos. Things are really tough for them right now, as tourism is a massive part of the Galapagos and Ecuador economy. Booking a trip now will help our partners support their families, friends, and staff. When you book through Detour, the vast majority of what you spend on your trip goes directly to our partners and into their local economy.

One of our personal favorites is the Angelito Galapagos Cruise. The Angelito is a family-owned yacht, and you’ll often find yourself on board with the owners, an experienced naturalist guide and the captain. They are taking great care of their crew and staff right now, continuing to support them even though the Angelito won’t start operating again until May. The whole team is ready for you to come experience the Galapagos with them!
