Sail the GalapagosGalapagos, Ecuador
Explore one of the most unique archipelagos in the world on a sailing tour through the Ecuadorian Galapagos. Board your vessel in Baltra and begin by learning about evolutionary discoveries on Santa Cruz Island, home to the Charles Darwin Research Centre. Wander flora-filled trails on Santa Fe Island, then cruise to North Seymour Island to see one of the largest sea lion colonies.
On Bartomelé Island, watch lava spew from Pinnacle Rock and ooze into Sullivan Bay, before jumping in for a snorkel with reef sharks and colourful fish. Glimpse pink flamingos, pin-tailed ducks and the endemic Floreana mockingbird while walking the emerald sands of Cormorant Point on Floreana Island, then ascend a four-million-year-old volcano to glimpse a 30,000-strong colony of albatross on Española Island. Finish your epic journey in San Cristobal, Darwin’s landing point in 1835.
