As with everything in the Galapagos Islands, Galapagos Island tours involving cruise ships can come in one of three different modes: (a) high-end; (b) medium: and (c) economical. Ordinarily, high-end cruises involve yachts with crews of between 6 and 9. Normally these yachts can take a maximum of 22 people; however, if you're looking to make a party of it, some of the large cruise ships can take between 50 and 100 passengers. Medium priced cruises, on the other hand, are usually either sail-boats (yachts) or motor-boats and can normally take up to 10 passengers. Finally, most of the cheaper boats are motor-boats that can handle up to 16 passengers.
