WELCOME TO THE GALAPAGOS ISLANDS
Dive into nature's workshop
The Western Islands
IsaBela & Fernandina
The largest and youngest of the Galápagos Islands, the less-visited western islands contain some of the archipelago’s largest colonies of birds and marine
iguanas and boundless snorkeling opportunities.
If you’re looking for wildlife, come here first.
The Central Islands
Santiago, Santa Cruz &
The Galápagos’ central islands are perhaps the best spot from which to witness the full scope of the archipelago’s incredible natural diversity on the land
and (with a snorkel) under the sea. While close together, each of these small islands has developed
in isolation from its neighbours, spawning an amazing collection of plants and animals.
The East Island
An aquatic haven of biodiversity, you’ll find just about every kind of creature (including snorkelers and scuba divers) imaginable off San Cristóbal’s clear waters. The land and sky are equally amazing, too, playing host to colonies of boobies, frigatebirds and volcanic landscapes.
The Southern Islands
Floreana & Espanola
The southern Galápagos Islands are home to top-notch snorkeling and quirky tradition. Volcanic bays and unusual land formations provide shelter for a dazzling array of birds and fish, and the charming simplicity of Post Office Bay always raises a grin or two.
The Northern Island
It’s hard to tear your eyes away from the water in the Galápagos, but you’ll want to look skyward on
Genovesa. Home to an amazing concentration of bird life, this tiny rock is no slouch under the waves
either, boasting a rich variety of aquatic animals that rival their winged neighbors.
