GALAPAGOS ISLAND CRUISES
A nature lovers paradise, the Galapagos Islands were the inspiration for Darwin's 'Origin of Species' and theory of evolution, this collection of unique and isolated islands are home to a huge array of distinctive and diverse wildlife. Lying approximately 1000km off the coast of Ecuador and never connected to the mainland, the islands are a paradise of stunning volcanic landscapes where blue-footed boobies, turtles, sea lions, penguins, marine iguanas and giant tortoises are the natives.
These beautiful and unspoiled islands offer stunning scenery, with forest-clad mountains, mangrove fringed lagoons, lava covered cliffs and white sandy beaches. A cruise is the best way to explore as it allows you to discover different islands, each with its own distinctive character, differing wildlife and terrain. For example you can snorkel with a large colony of sea lions on Floreana, see five active volcanoes on Isabela and roam around with giant tortoises Santa Cruz, but one thing remains, whichever islands you visit you'll have the adventure of a lifetime.
Wildlife You are guaranteed to meet a huge variety of near near-tame wildlife on the Galapagos islands. The wildlife has had no experience of man's existence and therefore has never feared it, as a result you are able to observe and photograph the wildlife at remarkably close range. From swimming with playful sea lions and marine iguanas, encountering giant tortoises and walking amongst colonies of penguins, Nazca and Blue Footed Boobies, close encounters are guaranteed and you'll see wildlife at its best.
