Galapagos Islands

The Galapagos Archipelago is one of the last great natural places on earth. A voyage to this spectacular destination is an opportunity to experience firsthand some of the most unique and accessible wildlife found anywhere.

When naturalist Charles Darwin arrived at the Galapagos in 1835 he was inspired by the unique animal populations he found – giant tortoise, seal lions, penguin, marine iguana, land iguana, and the most famous group of creatures – finches. Each island in the Galapagos has finches with slightly different beaks or other slight variations in size that have adapted to its unique environment. This species of tiny birds, aptly named Darwin’s Finches, became the lynchpin for his work on natural selection. Little has changed among the wildlife found in the Galapagos since Darwin first observed them.

Wildlife

The water around the islands is crystal clear and offers many wonderful wildlife encounters. Imagine snorkeling among a colony of playful sea lions, or encountering an iguana swimming in a rocky tide pool. The animals are amazingly tame, and their remarkable trust establishes an instant bond with visitors. Sea Lions play hide and seek with you in the tide pools. Marine Iguanas– shining jet-black in the ocean spray- look menacing but are harmless and complacent. Scarlet-faced lizards climb in and out of lava crevices, while yellow-crowned Night Herons and Galapagos Green Herons stalk armies of Sally Light-foot crabs, that scurry across the lava formations. Tropical Flamingos are reflected in still pools and shy penguins peer from rock outcrops. Nowhere else on earth provides such intimacy with nature.

Geography

The islands are skirted by peaceful coves, sparkling beaches, and jagged cliffs. There are beaches of black and brown sand and others of pounded shell fragments. The raw beauty of the volcanic craters look as though they have been crafted by a mad yet inspired sculptor. Within this odd scene are great sinkholes filled with azure water and blowholes that the sea blasts through in geyser-like fountains.

Each island offers something different. Visit the fur seals on Santiago Island. Walk among the masked boobies and blue-footed boobies on Tower Island. Encounter the ‘Galapagos’ tortoises in the highlands of Santa Cruz Island, or visit the Darwin Research Station and meet top researchers.

Hike the summit on Bartholomé Island and take in some of the most spectacular views of the volcanic landscape and nearby islands. The area is considered to be one of the most active volcanic regions in the world. Scenic anchorages, beaches, and winding paths all offer countless opportunities to experience the magic of this archipelago and its amazing inhabitants.

Mary Crowley, director of Ocean Voyages, has visited Galapagos ten times and has twice led month-long expeditions. Our knowledge of this area, and the best expert guides, allow us to create an unforgettable Galapagos adventure.
