The Galápagos are often called the enchanted islands – because the island archipelago is home to unique wildlife not found anywhere else in the world. Explore in the footsteps of Charles Darwin, whose voyage to the Galápagos aboard H.M.S. Beagle inspired his book Origin of Species – and see, firsthand, the isolated habitats comprising a world of nature unlike any other, including the amazing possibility on our summertime departures to view the sea turtle eggs hatching along Galápagos beaches and their run to the ocean. Onboard expert guides and naturalists share their insights and knowledge, with daily activities varying from walks and hikes along wildlife trails and lava roads, snorkeling in the colorful depths of undersea calderas, kayaking on bays and inlets – and of course many opportunities to view the fascinating wildlife up close. The Galápagos Islands are one of the must-see destinations on any world traveler’s list – and our cruises are truly unforgettable.
