THE GALAPAGOS ISLANDS
... are probably the most famous wildlife-watching destination in the world. And no wonder - it's almost impossible to exaggerate the sheer spectacle of the place that provided inspiration for Charles Darwin's groundbreaking theory of natural selection

THE GALAPAGOS ISLANDS
A destination for everyone - birders, scuba-divers, adventurers, honeymooners, photographers and nature enthusiasts.
A bucket list, once-in-a-lifetime destination, the uninhabited and protected Galapagos National Park spans across 95% of the islands. Full of unique flora, the islands teem with wildlife - many endemic to the islands.
Cruises vary from 4-15 days, with usually two island visits per day, whilst other activities can include snorkeling, swimming, kayaking and skiff rides. Budget through to luxury yacht and traditional sail ships are available.
A land-based tour is also possible, island-hopping to different islands daily. However, distances can be vast and most guests enjoy the liveaboard cruises.
Most animals are visible all year round.
Land species include lava lizards, giant tortoises, and land and marine iguanas, whilst sea lions and fur seals can be seen basking along the shorelines. Jump in to snorkel or dive with tropical fish, sharks, rays and sea turtles. Or time your trip and islands carefully to see whalesharks, orcas or whales.
Birdwatchers are in for a treat, with great and magnificent frigatebirds, flightless cormorants, Galapagos dove, greater flamingos, Nazca, red-footed, masked and blue-footed boobies!
One of our top destinations, we offer a myriad of sailing options for the Galapagos - usually intimate experiences with just 12-16 passengers.
Enjoy to travel on budget, mid-priced, or luxury cruises.
