Start the day with a leisurely breakfast, the perfect combination of coffee and fresh air. Then, get suited up with wetsuits for the day’s adventures. Get comfortably seated in your tender for your morning’s commute to your first island where you’ll find yourself surrounded by hundreds of marine iguanas, blue-footed boobies, and so much more. Relax at the beach, snorkel, or take in a guided hike as you get to know the incredible habitants of this island up close.
Exploring works up an appetite. Return to the ship for a freshly-prepared lunch as you recall the morning’s adventure. As you dine, your ship gently moves to your next island destination. After lunch, suit back up, hop into your tender and get ready for another afternoon of excursions. From white sand beaches to black fields of lava flows, each island presents unique discoveries.
As the evening sun begins to lower, meet at the bar to unwind and talk with fellow explorers about your experiences. Take in a briefing about what the next day holds before settling down for a gourmet dinner, full of fresh seafood and incredible local flavors. Relax, and get ready to rest up in the haven of your room for tomorrow’s adventures.
Before you get to stand gazing into the soulful eyes of a tortoise older than your grandfather, there is something you should know. You don’t have to do a single thing to make sure you’re right here, at the right time, to experience this. All shore excursions are included in your trip – we take care of absolutely everything so you can stay focused in the moment.
Who knew that a single day could hold so many experiences? The moment you board a tender boat to head for the famed islands, your tour back in time begins.
You’ll spend part of the day snapping photos of marine iguanas and ancient tortoises or hiking to view the breathtaking flowers and cactus, while happening upon sea lions along the way.
Snorkel with sea turtles, learn the history of the hundreds of bird species, and return to the ship in time for a well-earned dinner, prepared from scratch and masterfully grilled.
You casually linger, as you relive the day with new-found friends under a breathtaking canopy of stars. And that, fellow traveler, is just day one.
While the animals of the Galapagos Islands get the glory, the evolution and adaptation of plant life here is equally important. Check out the beautiful lava Cactus, which only grows on barren lava fields. The Prickly Pear Cactus found only on these islands. And, the magnificent Scalesia, which grows up to sixty feet tall.
Since the animals here don’t fear humans, you can truly get up close and personal, looking into the eyes of a Galapagos marine iguana, and walking among penguins – the only penguin species north of the equator. Here, you’ll discover creatures whose very existence forms the basis for one of the most famous scientific theories in history.
Get ready for the snorkel experience of a lifetime. Here you’ll swim beside sea turtles and friendly and curious sea lions. They welcome you and swim along as if you’re already part of the family.
