Easier Access to Galapagos Cruises

Aerogal direct flights to the Galapagos Islands

Getting to Ecuador Just Got Easier
Now it is easier to get to Ecuador than ever before. Aerogal airlines just introduced nonstop daily flights to Ecuador from NY’s JFK airport. The 24-year-old carrier’s new route extends its range from domestic flights, plus nonstop links with Miami and Bogotá, with its new “Big Apple” service. AeroGal Flight 901 departs JFK’s Terminal 4 at 11:59 p.m., arriving in Guayaquil at 6:29 a.m. The return flight from Ecuador’s prime port departs at 2:30 p.m., landing at Kennedy at 8:40 p.m. AeroGal operates its New York connection with a 210-passenger Boeing 767.

Why put Ecuador on your must-see list?
Ecuador is among the most rewarding travel destinations in South America. With its array of vibrant indigenous cultures, well preserved colonial architecture, otherworldly volcanic landscapes, pristine islands, and dense rainforest, it packs its perimeters with more points of interest than many countries twice its size. With Boundless Journeys expert local guides you can swim with sea lions, hike up volcanoes, visit the famous Otavalo market, snorkel with sea turtles three times your size, and relax in charming seaside hotels or on a deluxe yacht each night.

If you Choose to Cruise
Boundless Journeys’ Cruises offer an up close and personal experience with small, deluxe yachts ranging in size from 12-48 pax. Each tour begins in your choice of Quito to Guayaquil, followed by 8-days out at sea. During this time you will encounter incredibly rare and beautiful wildlife with an expert naturalist guide. Days are filled with opportunities to snorkel, hike, swim, kayak, or just relax on deck. Evenings are spent debriefing the day, dining al fresco on delicious local and international cuisine, and letting the ocean gently lull you to sleep.
