Ecoventura Debuts "Early Bird" Rates for Galapogos Voyages


more deals

A sliding scale of discounts between now and next fall offer eco-conscious travelers 'sustainable' savings for cruise bookings made directly with Ecoventura and its eco-friendly fleet of small expedition vessels in the Galapagos Islands.

Multiple departures beginning in late August and running through mid December are available with up to 15 percent off if booked 180 days out from departure.

The "Early Bird" booking discounts are reduced as passage is booked closer: 10 percent if booked 179-90 days out and then 5 percent from 89 days out to the day of departure.

"September is one of the best times of the year to see marine mammals, pilot whales, bottlenose and common dolphins," said Doris Welsh, Ecoventura's Director of Sales & Marketing.

"The water temps are cooler (we do have wet suits on board), and it's prime time for viewing spotted eagle rays, cow rays and sea turtles. Baby sea lion pups are being born and baby frigate birds, albatross and boobies are just hatching. Plus, it's our 'slow time' and the Galapagos Islands can be less crowded (not that it is ever too crowded)."
Welsh underscored that the Galapagos cruise discounts are designed to attract and secure additional bookings from adventure travelers who recognize and appreciate Ecoventura's commitment to sustainable travel  in this eco-fragile region.
"Frankly, the more business we have, the more dollars we can and will commit to our challenge of leading the region to a secure position ecologically," Welsh said.
Also new for 2011, all passengers on Ecoventura's three expedition yachts, Eric, Flamingo and Letty will be offered a complimentary glass of house wine or a local beer from Ecuador during dinner each night. This follows the company's commitment to locally-sourced products, food and beverages.

Deal Dates: January 19, 2011 - December 18, 2011
