Overview

Book
With almost 1,000 km of water lying between them and the South American mainland, the islands of the Galapagos were able to evolve largely unfettered by the presence of humanity and its ambitions. Read of Charles Darwin’s voyage there in the early nineteenth century and he tells of hawks that would come to perch on his shoulder and sea lions waddling up to inspect him. Today, thankfully, much remains as it was then. So if close encounters with the winged, scaled and finned kind are what you’re after, you really can’t go past this sailing trip through the archipelago’s remote northern islands.

    • Learn about the islands’ history at the San Cristobal Interpretation Center
    • Wander through Santa Fe’s Opuntia Forest
    • Visit the seabird rookeries on Genovesa

Was excellent. It was a set activity with no room to change. No time to go scuba diving on this trip. Wetsuit should be free of charge.

Loved this cruise, it was the perfect introduction to the Galapagos and our knowledgeable guide taught us so much about the islands. One day we were snorkelling with seal lions, the next penguins! This tour is suitable for all ages and you get to see a lot of wildlife!

This tour was excellent - the right amount of time spent on a boat, seeing some of the most beautiful islands and waters in the Galapagos. We saw so much wildlife. The staff were amazing and local to the Galapagos. I would recommend this trip to anyone interested in seeing the Galapagos. Some of the swims were challenging, life vests available. Uneven terrain on hikes. Otherwise, not so strenuous.

The Galapagos Islands are one of the most amazing places I have ever been, with each Island offering new and different landscapes, animals and unique beauty. It is some of the best snorkelling I have ever experienced - I have never seen so many turtles, sharks and sea lions in one place! The boat is small but beautiful, clean and so relaxing! This is truly a trip of a lifetime! One note - The Galapagos Discovery, while advertised as a Geckos Adventure is actually an Intrepid trip. This means that ages of people on the group will be mixed, and were all much older on my trip.
