Incredible, up-close wildlife encounters in the Galapagos - a 'little world within itself'

Surely one of the most amazing places on Earth, the Galapagos Islands are perhaps the only place in the world where you can see wildlife so close up. The lack of large predators on the island group (which sits 600 miles from the Ecuadorian mainland) means that its iconic wildlife – giant tortoises, vibrant birdlife, inquisitive sea lions and so much more – are fearless of humans. There’s plenty to do on a visit to the islands, such as:

  • Snorkelling among the green sea turtles and sea lions
  • Hiking around the Sierra Negra Volcano
  • Visiting the Giant Tortoise Breeding Centre
  • Kayaking around Divine Bay
  • Diving with gentle sharks

Whether you’re planning a honeymoon aboard an intimate catamaran, want to explore from the base of a luxury lodge or safari style camp, are looking to join an expertly staffed larger ship or embarking on an exclusive adventure on a fully private large charter, we’ll create the perfect trip for you. Our Latin America experts can talk you through the options to make sure you find the yacht or hotel that best suits your needs.

The Galapagos Islands are my favorite destination in Latin America. Walking among giant tortoises in the highlands surrounded by mist and fog, snorkeling with sharks just meters from you in the deep waters, swimming with playful baby sea lions off sandy beaches and slowly picking out a path through the large groups of marine iguanas on nature walks. There’s nowhere else like it on earth!
