With the wonder of wildlife, blissful beaches, warm air, barefoot and with the breeze in your hair, the Galapagos make an awesome wildlife destination.
Far out in the Pacific Ocean, 1,000km off the coast of Ecuador and at the confluence of five major ocean currents, they create a unique ecology on land as well as under water. The incredibly rich phytoplankton starts a food chain that makes swimming in the sea like swimming in a monumental aquarium.
These islands have risen from the sea through volcanic action over the millennia, creating a volcanic hotspot between the Equator, Nazca and Cocos tectonic plates. The result is an extraordinary archipelago, with islands of differing antiquity and wildlife populations, and of course, the great variation of species and evolution noted by Charles Darwin. In the short time since he visited in 1835, these islands changed how we view our world.
We spend days on land on Santa Cruz Island, as well as on a cruise around these staggering islands. For our Island cruise shore excursions we have an English speaking naturalist guide with us at all times. The guide will expand your knowledge of the ‘Enchanted Islands’ and of the culture and history of The Galapagos.
in 2018 we will be chartering a whole ship 'Coral II' ensuring a private wildlife journey – just ask for details as soon as possible as places are already being reserved.
