Retrace the footsteps of Charles Darwin as you explore Ecuador's wildlife-filled Galápagos Islands
Expedition cruise | Natural world | Ocean cruise | Unique & unusual | Wildlife
Fly out of Lima to add in the unique wildlife and alien islands that have inspired the very way that we understand the world. You’ll explore it all on the Santa Cruz II – the finest ship in her class to sail the archipelago, featuring ocean view hot tubs, tablet computers and barbecues. It’s custom built to explore remote areas and smaller islands as glass-bottom boats, kayaks and snorkelling trips will introduce you to the region’s dazzling array of marine life. Pastel coral beds host everything from manta rays and hammerhead sharks to turtles and fur seals. Shore excursions will then treat you to volcanic sunsets that pick out giant tortoises, lava lizards and delicate flamingos. Naturalist guides bring it all to life.
