Zegrahm Expeditions Offers Two Ways to Explore the Galápagos
Guests can Visit on its Signature 13-Day Cruise or Brand-New Diving Adventure

Seattle, WA (February 23, 2016) – Zegrahm Expeditions, the world leader in small-ship cruising and overland adventures, is pleased to announce that in addition to its signature 13-day Galápagos expedition, the company has announced a brand-new diving adventure to the region in 2017.

Ultimate Galápagos is a comprehensive 13-day cruise, encompassing 10 distinct islands. Aboard the 38-guest Isabela II , guests will observe numerous endemic species—including giant Galápagos tortoises, marine iguanas, and Darwin’s finches—as well as discover fascinating geology, and snorkel and swim among playful sea lions. Two departure options: July 14, 2016 or August 11, 2016. Priced from $11,980 per person.

Departing October 7, 2017, travelers on the Galápagos Diving Adventure will spend 10 days exploring one of the largest marine protected areas in the world. Aboard the 16-guest Galapagos Sky , participants will be able to dive up to four times a day, plus join night dives, as they search for whale sharks, dolphins, hammerhead sharks, sea turtles, and barracuda. Guests will also cruise to remote Darwin and Wolf Islands, where both large pelagics and colorful tropical species can be found in abundance. Priced from $8,480 per person.

“We couldn’t be more excited to return to the Galápagos in 2016 and 2017 on both our signature cruise and a brand-new adventure for our guests,” says Zegrahm President Van Perry. “Both trips really do offer the best of the archipelago, with several snorkeling (and now diving) options to explore the underwater realm, as well as hikes and nature walks.”

Both voyages will be led by Zegrahm cofounder, expedition leader, and marine biologist, Jack Grove. Jack lived in the Galápagos Islands for seven years and wrote a book on the region, The Fishes of the Galápagos Islands.
