The Galapagos islands are a group of volcanic islands in the Pacific Ocean. They are home to many unusual species of animals and plants, including giant tortoises, blue-footed boobies, marine iguanas and flightless cormorants.
The Galapagos Islands were declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1978.
The Galapagos Islands are located about 1,000 kilometers (600 miles) off the coast of Ecuador. There are 13 main islands and many smaller ones that make up the archipelago. The three largest islands — Isabela, San Cristobal and Floreana — account for more than 90 percent of all land area in Galapagos.
Around 600 miles off the bank of Ecuador, in the Pacific Sea, the Galapagos Islands are a wonderful spot to visit for untamed life sightings. You can see flightless Galapagos penguins, Galapagos ocean lions, goliath Galapagos turtles, marine iguanas and many different species found no place else on the planet.
Galapagos is a unique experience for every level of traveler. Charters will take you to many private islands where you can get in the water with sea lions, sharks and penguins. We are excited to offer this opportunity to explore one of the most unique ecosystems on earth.
The Galapagos Islands are one of the most remarkable, unique and unspoiled destinations in the world.
You’ll experience exceptionally different and delightful scenes throughout your voyage. You may see a sea lion pickled in the water and underneath the surface of the water, you might encounter sharks, or even see sea lions resting far from shore. Our boats are suitable for families; we all utilize life vests to guarantee that everybody stays safe.
The Galapagos islands are the ultimate refuge of biodiversity. The contrast between the rich variety of animals, plants and geological formations represents the natural life developing in these islands.
