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.

I can’t imagine a better way to experience this incredible destination than with family. There’s nowhere else quite like it and the wildlife is active year-round, so you’ll always be witness to something special here – whether it’s snorkelling with somersaulting sea lions, spotting frigate birds puffing out their red chest trying to attract a mate, or witnessing newly hatched albatrosses taking their first steps.
