Overall an experience of a lifetime!

Black Turtle Cove….peaceful, tranquil experience watching sea turtles mate & viewing the sharks. Snorkeling with the penguins, sharks, & sea turtles. Watching new born (minutes old) sea lions being nursed & cared for by their mother. Awesome hikes to volcano tops, through black lava fields to lagoons to & land turtle farm. Watching the boobies “dive bombing” for fish.

It was an unforgettable experience.

The highlights of this trip for me came together on our walk on Chinese Hat. We saw many Frigate birds displaying mating behaviors. Many male Frigate birds displayed their wonderful big, red pouches to attract a female. We also observed Blue-footed Boobies in their mating behavior. There were lots of Sea Lions with their young, either feeding or lounging in the sand. The part of the island where the Sea Lions were had lots of volcanic rocks that protected the habitat from large foamy waves crashing down. There was not enough time to observe all the fascinating interactions of land, sea and animals.

Wonderful trip to the Galapagos

We really enjoyed the dinghy trips. We saw so much wildlife including giant tortoises, iguanas and fantastic bird life. As the boat only had eight cabins we got to know all the other guests well.

Spacious cabin. Small size of boat. Good atmosphere.

Overall a really worthwhile experience.

The snorkeling was the best. Took us to great places and saw lots. A few tips for the company: Add shampoo and soap to the list of things for people to bring. Trim the base around the cabin toilets so you don't stub your toes on it. Get a better selection of drinks - especially the wine - and make sure you clearly explain the prices.
