Celebrity Xperience Cruise Ship Activities
The land excursions provide an in depth Galapagos experience about the exotic flora and fauna found in these remote islands. Visitors can explore the spectacular and diverse landscape and walk among the most fascinating wildlife in their natural habitat. Learn firsthand about the volcanic islands and the mysteries they hold. Hikes with our certified naturalist-guides will build up the concept of evolution and showcase the uniqueness of each individual island.
On offer are two types of snorkeling activities: deep water from the dinghy, and from the beach. Prior to or after the island excursions there is often an opportunity to snorkel and explore the amazing underwater world of the archipelago. It is not unusual to share the marine environment with rays, turtles, sharks, flightless cormorants, penguins, marine iguanas, a multitude of fish and of course the ever playful sea lions and fur seals.
For those who don't want to snorkel, kayaking is an excellent opportunity to explore the wildlife close up along the cliffs and in the water. Due to the clear waters in the archipelago guests will be able to observe sea turtles, sea lions, rays and even dolphins from the safe base of their double kayak. Your guide and a dinghy are always nearby. No prior experience is required.
At certain visitor points in the islands you are not allowed to go on shore and excursions are made with the dinghies along the shores. This allows guests the opportunity to study the spectacular Galapagos geography, paddle through tranquil mangroves and observe marine iguanas, flightless cormorants, penguins, sea birds and much more.
Although sightings are not guaranteed, with a keen eye and some luck you may see some whales during your cruise, especially between June and September. An announcement will always be made if a whale is spotted.
