A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the volcanic Galapagos Islands are one of the most famous wildlife-watching destinations in the world.  

Many of the species that call the Galapagos home can be found nowhere else on earth, and include marine iguanas, giant tortoises, flightless cormorants, seals and sea lions, dolphins and whales, and the Galapagos penguin, to name but a few.

This biodiversity has made the archipelago a world-renowned location for snorkeling, bird-watching, and hiking in particular. In briefing the world on ts decision to select the Galapagos as a World Heritage Site, UNESCO mentioned that part of what makes the Galapagos so unique is the gentle confidence its wildlife has around human visitors.

The islands themselves are extraordinarily beautiful and each one is different: some beaches boast postcard-perfect white sand, while others clearly reflect their volcanic history.

The warm beaches of the Galapagos make the destination an attractive spot for those in search of a relaxing vacation. Opportunities for wildlife, scuba diving, snorkeling, hiking, kayaking, paddle boarding, and surfing, of course, will keep you as busy as you please.

How to visit Galapagos?

We offer two different ways to visit the Galapagos: land-based tours and live-aboard cruises.

In a land-based tour, you stay in a Galapagos hotel and have the option of traveling to the archipelago’s different islands by boat during the day. If you opt to book a cruise, you can charter the entire vessel or reserve individual spots. Cruises can be as short as four days, or as long as fifteen.

Please feel free to learn more about Galapagos land-based tours here, and cruises here. Once you’ve settled on the option that’s right for you, let us know! We are also happy to discuss the two options with you at any time, so please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have questions.
