“When it comes to wildlife, no place on earth compares to the Galapagos.”
With species here found nowhere else on earth, time in the Galapagos is a never-ending roll call of wildlife vignettes: snorkelling with sea lions that swim and play within inches of you; seeing giant tortoises lumbering around the highlands of Santa Cruz; watching the elaborate courtship ritual of the blue-footed booby from just a few feet away; feeling small and harmless sharks tickle your toes as you wade ashore; following a sea turtle as she cruises majestically along the edge of a coral reef; or seeing humpback whales breech the surface with their calves, exhaling air like a canon from a ship.
A Typical Day
“When was the last time you saw something for the first time?”
Days typically include morning and afternoon landings at different sites. You’ll be taken ashore in a small panga or dinghy, which may take you to a dock (a dry landing) or might drop you at a beach where you’ll need to paddle ashore (a wet landing).
You’ll always be accompanied by an expert naturalist guide, who’ll point out the flora and fauna, explain the island’s history and regale you with stories about working and living in these strange, enchanted lands.
