Wildlife - the Galapagos
The Galapagos offer an unrivalled wildlife experience and is home to numerous endemic species - only here will you see Galapagos penguins, flightless cormorants and marine iguanas, and the giant tortoises the archipelago is so famous for. Furthermore, a quarter of the shore fish, half of the plants and almost all of the reptiles cannot be found anywhere else.
While accommodation is on board an expedition ship, excursions are by panga - an inflatable rubber craft with outboard motor. Accompanied by an expert naturalist guide, pick up a snorkel and explore the fascinating underwater world which includes a myriad of colourful fish, playful sea lions, dolphins and sunken volcanic craters.
Of course no trip to the Galapagos Islands is complete without seeing the blue-footed booby, paddling alongside a penguin or swimming with a sea lion.
