Galapagos Travel — Origin of Species Tour — Overview


Our signature Galapagos tour and cruise, we journey back in time, to a remote place like no other, for an experience that will forever change the way you view life on this planet. We hike, swim, snorkel and meander among birds and animals that have no fear of us, that return our curiosity as we enter their world. Come home renewed!

In order to reduce the impact on several highly visited sites, new Galapagos National Park rules prohibit a vessel from visiting any particular visitor site more than once every two weeks. We have selected what we think are the best possible two itineraries for you, which will run on alternating weeks. One focuses more on the western islands with several visits on Isabela; the other focuses on the eastern islands with several visits on San Cristobal.

Start your Galapagos tour with an overnight stay on Santa Cruz Island. We visit the Darwin Research Station and the Santa Cruz Highlands before we board our yacht so we can have an entire extra day to spend at visitor sites out in the islands.
