Children aged 8 years and over are welcome on board the Isabela II. A trip to the Galapagos is both fun and educational for children, who will enjoy the excitement of coming face to face with the local wildlife. During selected dates the Isabella II operates dedicated family departures, with specially designed excursions for children, competitions, games and educational materials.
