Zegrahm Expeditions Offers Unique Galápagos Expedition Geared Towards Multi-Generational Travelers

Expedition Exposes Travelers of All Ages to the Wonders of the Natural World with Zegrahm Cofounder

Seattle, WA (March 19, 2014) – Zegrahm Expeditions, the world leader in small-ship cruising and overland adventures, is thrilled to return to the Galápagos Islands this July for its annual Ultimate Galápagos expedition. Famed for unparalleled wildlife viewing, spectacular natural beauty, and Darwin’s home-away-from-home, the Galápagos are often described as “Mother Nature’s classroom.”

Zegrahm cofounder and marine biologist, Jack Grove, who lived in the islands for seven years and literally wrote the book, The Fishes of the Galápagos Islands, will lead travelers on this 13-day expedition. Jack designed this itinerary to give travelers of all ages a comprehensive overview of the islands, with in-depth exploration of both the marine and terrestrial worlds.

Highlights include:
  • Observing numerous endemic species—giant Galápagos tortoises, marine iguanas, flightless cormorants, and much more.
  • Snorkeling and swimming among playful sea lions, sea turtles, and, with luck, Galápagos penguins.
  • Discovering the fascinating geology of the islands, from lunar-like lava fields to active shield volcanoes.
  • Exploring the archipelago on Zodiac cruises, by kayak, and glass-bottom boat.

“There’s no doubt that travel and the thrill of shared discovery bring family and friends closer together,” says Zegrahm President Edwin Blythe. “And, this is the perfect itinerary for guests of all ages to create shared memories that are relived for many years to come.”

This expedition is aboard the intimate, 40-guest Isabela II from July 17 - 29, 2014 and is priced from $10,970 per person. Groups of 8 or more save 10% on the cruise fare with Zegrahm’s group savings discount.
