This is a Shared Tour / Group Tour. This means that there will be other people on this cruise besides yourself (or your travel party).
You will be picked up from the airport on Galapagos. Depending on the exact itinerary you will have to fly into Baltra airport (GPS) or San Cristobal airport (SCY) on the first day of the cruise.
In most cases the cruise operator will arrange your flights (between the Ecuadorian mainland and the Galapagos) for you. In case you buy your own flights, a penalty fee may apply, unless stated otherwise by the cruise operator. You can read more about this in our Frequently Asked Questions about Galapagos.
