Galapagos "naturalist" cruise after liveaboard?

21 July 2015 - 03:36 PM

I've booked a 10-day dive trip next year on the Galapagos Masters, and since this is a "once-in-a-lifetime" location, am considering doing a "naturalist" cruises (e.g. 8 day island hopping on a 16-20 passenger boat) either before or after the dive trip.  The dive itinerary WILL include a few land visits, but they are very limited.  The "naturalist" cruises do include more land visits, but are highly regulated by the Ecuadorian government (like the dive itineraries), so passengers aren't able to wander about on their own.  But I am hoping they will offer additional photo ops more than what the dive trip includes.  If anyone has any feedback on vessels or itineraries they can recommend, I'd appreciate it, especially if photographer-friendly.   Thanks!
