Visiting the Galapagos Islands can be the experience of a lifetime. Located 1,000 from Ecuador, this archipelago of 13 islands is famous for unique animal and plant life as well as volcanic geology. The islands are also steeped in history – Charles Darwin developed his famous Theory of Evolution after a five-week visit to these remote islands.
One of the best ways to see the Galapagos is aboard a small vessel. Unlike Caribbean cruises that carry several thousand passengers, Galapagos cruises average 16 passengers. Activities include snorkeling and exploring volcanic craters as well as bird, whale and dolphin watching. The islands are also known for their sea lions and giant tortoises.
