This voyage explores in depth some of the larger islands in the Galapagos, with landings to see Galapagos penguins, Galapagos giant tortoises and a host of unique bird species.
A visit to the Charles Darwin Research Station on Santa Cruz Island will help you learn about the breeding programmes being undertaken in the Galapagos to protect the giant tortoise and land iguana. You can also see giant tortoises in the wild in the highlands of Santa Cruz. You will then spend at least three days exploring Isabela Island, the largest of the archipelago, home to flamingos, penguins, green turtles and land iguanas.
Your journey then continues to the nearby volcanic island of Fernandina, which has a huge population of land iguanas, as well as a variety of other wildlife. The trip culminates with landings on Santiago, Bartolomé and North Seymour, where you can see fur seals, sealions, magnificent frigatebirds, blue-footed boobies and more penguins.
