Galápagos My Way
Sorry. There are no scheduled departures for this expedition.
Certainly one of the most iconic and memorable expeditions one can take, Galápagos adventure travel is exhilarating and humbling. You’ll find yourself in the company of species found nowhere else in the world, walking among abundant wildlife that has grown astonishingly fearless in the absence of humans and large predators. On your Galápagos tour, you might find yourself face to face with a pair of courting blue-footed boobies, sitting next to a marine iguana as it basks in the sun, or snorkeling amidst a family of playful sea lions. Journey in the company of a renowned Galápagos expert and Zegrahm cofounder, Jack Grove—this is truly the trip of a lifetime.
Galápagos and Ecuador Expedition Highlights:
- Accommodations aboard the intimate, 40-passenger Isabela II; her small size enables easy navigation of the islands.
- The waved albatross on Punta Suarez, one of the Islands’ largest birds; the walk over lava terrain is yet another hallmark of a Galápagos expedition.
- Zodiac expedition to Prince Philip’s Steps to see resident red-footed boobies, Nazca boobies, short-eared owls, and fur seals.
- Charles Darwin Research Station, a special stop on this Galápagos tour, to learn about conservation efforts; meet giant tortoises and land iguanas.
- Come face to face with seal lions, snorkel with Galápagos penguins, and meet the unique marine iguana.
- Ecuador tour, including time to explore Quito, with its Spanish-style cathedral, flower-bedecked plazas, and snowcapped mountains in the distance.
What to expect:
To fully benefit from the wildlife-viewing opportunities during Gálapagos adventure travel, participants should be fit and in good health. We aim for morning and afternoon shore excursions each day, including climbing in and out of Zodiacs and walking up to three miles at a comfortable pace over rough terrain. A highlight of this Galapagos tour is the chance to swim and snorkel with sea lions and other wildlife, so ease in open water is recommended; water temperatures will range from mid 60°sF to low 70°sF. Flexibility is a must, as travel to remote regions is inherently unpredictable, but intrinsically rewarding.
