Ultimate Galapagos

July 16, 2015 - July 28, 2015

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-guest 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 sea lions, snorkel with Galápagos penguins, and meet the unique marine iguana.
