4-day, 5-day, and 8-day cruise itineraries take you to some of the most dramatic spots in the archipelago. The 4-day itinerary takes you to the eastern islands, the 5-day cruise covers the central islands, and the 8-day “B” itinerary is one of the most comprehensive offered in the Galapagos, spanning from San Cristobal Island in the east to the western edges of Isabela Island and the volcanically active Fernandina.

The Alya has nine stylish, spacious cabins with up to 16 passengers. Eight of the cabins have private balconies but no outdoor furniture, and all rooms have modern private baths, independently controlled air conditioning, and the option of two twin beds or one queen-size configuration.

Upon arriving in the archipelago, these species had to rapidly adapt to a radically new environment.
