Located off the coast of Ecuador, the
Galapagos Islands were long a stopover for explorers, pirates and
whalers. In 1835 they were visited by British naturalist Charles
Darwin who, pondering how each island hosted unique species, developed
his Theory of Evolution. Still today, in this beautiful archipelago,
live a myriad of wildlife found nowhere else on earth—giant
tortoises, blue-footed boobies, flightless cormorants, marine iguanas,
and more. Here, in this protected environment where they have no
fear of humans, we can approach them up close, to marvel and photograph.
Since 1983, we have been taking adventurous people to exciting
destinations around the world. Our groups are small and personal.
In the Galapagos, we cruise the islands aboard a 16-passenger yacht,
accompanied by a licensed, naturalist guide. We have plenty of
time to hike, snorkel, and relax—and the food aboard the
yacht is delicious.
