A Galapagos Cruise

A Galapagos Cruise: A Natural Selection FROM 4,760 USD
A Galapagos Cruise: A Natural Selection

The incredible natural diversity of the Galapagos Island is the living laboratory from which Charles Darwin’s earth-shattering theory of evolution emerged. Across this archipelago, situated 600 miles off the coast of mainland Ecuador, you’ll discover species of birds, animals and amphibians — not to mention plant life — that simply cannot be found anywhere else on the planet. Blue-footed boobies, giant Galapagos tortoises, sea lions, marine iguanas – a visit here is like walking into a National Geographic documentary. Your vacation starts in Quito, Ecuador, from which you will fly to Baltra Island in the Galapagos. Upon landing, you’ll be driven to your luxury or 1st-class yacht to begin your cruise from island to island, discovering the wildlife that inspired Darwin. Small ships are at the heart of a Galapagos Island vacation, as most of the well-managed visitor sites are only accessible by boat. Our carefully selected catalog of ships and yachts, as well as our hotel and lodges, are the finest available, staffed with expert local naturalist guides to reveal to you the archipelago's unique environment and wildlife. Make the move and come experience it all for yourself.
