Galapagos Tours and Cruises
The Galapagos Islands are famous for a variety of unusual creatures, from marine iguanas to blue-footed boobies, and you'll get closer to the wildlife than you would anywhere else in the world. The Galapagos Archipelago lies 600 miles off the coast of South America and is reached via a short flight from Quito, Ecuador. The isolation and late discovery by humans, along with a historical lack of predators has set the stage for a unique environmental experiment and developed into perhaps the greatest showcase for evolution to be witnessed anywhere. Follow in the footsteps of Charles Darwin - step aboard a Galapagos cruise and discover it for yourself!
