Galapágos Islands

The Galapágos were once a chain of isolated islands about 500 miles west of Ecuador. Once discovered by Charles Darwin, the landscape and wildlife were unlike any other. Today you can discover these creatures for yourself. With spectacular views of unique habitats, these islands are the perfect way to get in touch with nature while enjoying the perks of modern life aboard your yacht. Play a game of tag with sea lions, view the warm weather penguins, dive with sharks, touch giant tortoises, glimpse the native birds, and trek over land that seems from another planet. Each yacht charter is given a specific itinerary intended to protect these pristine islands. Enjoy mother nature without the crowds as you make your way along this volcanic archipelago. In the Galapágos, you can discover these islands like the explorers of old, while enjoy the modern luxuries of today.
