This is a working vacation for those wanting a busy but flexible schedule for seeing all that the Galapagos offers.

Lots of baby and nesting birds. Swimming with sea lions. Mating turtles. Tons of fish and sharks/rays when snorkeling. I saw all of the species i had hoped to see.

Very nice, it was one of a lifetime trip.

Too many to lis. We mainly enjoyed exploring every island with the unique birds, animals and sea life. Although it was our first time snorkeling, we loved and planning on doing more in the future.

Once in a lifetime trip that exceeded expectations

A fantastic trip where we swam with eagle rays, sharks, turtles and sea lions and saw penguins, friget mating rituals, flamingos and as many iguanas as you could hope to see up close and personal. We also walked to several breathtaking viewpoints of the various islands we visited. And the boat was fantastic - spotless, spacious and friendly with excellent food available. The Galapagos isn't a cheap option but if you love nature, it will be the experience of a lifetime.

Wonderful trip!

We love the trip; even when we got seasick, the crew members were very helpful. It was amazing to see the extraordinary animals that live in Galapagos (both in land and in the sea). Our guide knew many interesting facts. Thanks for a wonderful experience!

You must do this!

We enjoyed this trip so much, the crew was fantastic, the international group of guest blended together so well, the ship is well maintained, the excursions are all very worth it. The program is dense though. Only drawback: We ran out of beverages during the last three days, first wine, then milk, then beer, despite of having made a supply chain stop a day before. This may not happen at such prices.
