Galapagos Islands Kayaking Tours

Sea kayaking is always enjoyable but never more so than in the milky aquamarine waters of the Galapagos, with its close-up view of the Galapagos wildlife. For a Galapagos sea kayaking trip, we offer thirty-two different options on land-based Galapagos tours and Galapagos cruises.

Galapagos Island Tours: Land Based and Combination (Land / Cruise)

Both of our land-based Galapagos tours spend some time on land and some time on sea. All you need to decide is whether you want to paddle more or less to leave time for some bicycles and horses. Either way, it's a dream Galapagos adventure vacation.
