For wildlife lovers, the stunning Galapagos are not to be missed. Little has changed since Darwin’s visit almost 200 years ago. Sea lions, giant tortoises, penguins and marine iguanas are still unworried by visitors nearby. Hawks, boobies, albatross, frigate birds and finches patrol the skies.
Colourful fish, sharks, rays, whales and dolphins are regular visitors. It is possible to stay on land or enjoy the Galapagos on a luxury yacht or expedition cruise ship. As the Galapagos is made up of nearly 20 islands, many with quite different terrain and wildlife, a yacht or expedition cruise ship permits exploration of a number of islands in one holiday.
Cruises can last between 4 and 15 days and ships range in size from 12 to 100 guests. Daily itineraries are similar from ship to ship and on the islands you will be in a small group, as by law groups must have no more than sixteen people.
We are sure nature lovers will not be disappointed with their visit to these magical islands.
