Date; Starting in Quito May 13th, 2020
This is the second running of this extraordinary journey. You will be knocked out by the sheer beauty of the islands themselves, and the wildlife experiences are probably beyond your highest expectations.
We arrange and manage a whole range of activities to help you get the most from your journey.
With the wonder of wildlife, blissful beaches, warm air, barefoot and with the breeze in your hair, the Galapagos make an excellent wildlife destination.
We have an English speaking naturalist guide with us at all times. The guides will help us expand your knowledge of the ‘Enchanted Islands’ and of the culture and history of The Galapagos.
in 2020 we will again be chartering the ship 'Coral II' ensuring a private wildlife journey – just ask for details as soon as possible as places are already being reserved.
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 underwater. The incredibly rich phytoplankton starts a food chain that makes swimming in the sea like swimming in a great 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 considerable 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.
