There are many choices for seeing the Galapagos, but you have probably been looking at the Celebrity Xpedition. Here are some tips, most transfers are by tender, not the lift boat that docks at a jetty, they are normally ribs that have a wet landing wading knee deep or onto uneven rocky volcanic shores. You may then be able to climb some rocks assisting each other. Footwear and clothes that allow you to paddle then walk. If you have problems balancing or dodgy knees or hips, you will need assistance which may not always be able to focus on you. There may be no railings or steps. The walking terrains can vary, even the large rounded pebbles can be lose and slippery when wet. The sea can be choppy as well as wet! This is why we thought these tips on what to pack were worth sowing along with the terrain. Our other film on what to pack is double important including sea sickness bands. Take a look. If you are wondering about space then we do have a cabin tour of the Xpedition.

On the island there may be steps you cannot avoid, like Price Phillip’s steps on Genovese Island and the wooden staircase at Bartolomé. The Galapagos are left as natural as they can be, so do not expect cafes, rest facilities or even benches or toilets. This is an expedition, be prepared!

This is one time that a little planning and double checking on what to pack and what is going to be there might be wise. Here is a good film on what to pack for Galapagos. If you cruised the other Pacific Islands like Hawaii and Bora Bora and Tahiti, then go that large step further and try the Galapagos.
