  Discover the Galapagos Islands  
 

Discover the GALAPAGOS ISLANDS aboard our First Class Cruises.  Amazing landscapes, species and more with our professional crew.

The Galapagos Islands is a volcanic archipelago in the Pacific Ocean.  It's considered one of the world's foremost destinations for wildlife-viewing.  A province of Ecuador, it lies about 1000 km off its coast.  Its isolated terrain shelters a diversity of plant and animal species, many found nowhere else Charles Darwin visited in 1835 and his observation of Galapagos species later inspired his theory of evolution.

 
 

Singular Lands in a Unique Place

On white sand beaches in front of crystal clear, turquoise seas, Galapagos sea lions recline in lines as fas as the eye can see.  On other shores-- with red, purple, golden, black, or green sands -- marine iguanas and Galapagos green turtles shuttle back and forth from the waters. And more forged by fire landscapes, mangrove lagoons and cactus forests ring with types of birdsong only heard here.

 
 
 

This is the Galapagos, a name that encompasses about thirteen major islands, six smaller islands, and many even tinier isltes and rocks that are set along the Equator six hundred miles off the west coast of South America.  They comprise 3,093 square miles of land spread out over 23,000 square miles of ocean.  Born from fiery volcanoes deep in the Pacific Ocean, the islands have never been part of a continent.  And, since they have only relatively recently been "discovered" by humans, it's possible to see the Earth in a more pristine state here than anywhere else on the planet.

 
 
 

All of the animals in the Galapagos Islands arrived by swimming, floating, or flying and it is the prehistoric-looking Galapagos giant tortoise that became the iconic,dominant land creature. 

 
 
 
Galapagos Island Tours

Snorkel with sea lions, soak up the sun with iguanas or marvel at the natural beauty that surrounds you -- just a typical day ona Galapagos tour!  Situated 1000 km off the coast of Ecuador, this isolated haven of biodiversity remains nature's greatest science laboratory, home to a dazzling array of birds, reptiles, fish and mammals that you won't find anywhere else.  with no known predators, the wildlife in the Galapgos exhibit almost no fear of humans.  But really, if you got to lay ablout on the stark lava fields of Rabida or the white-sand beaches of Espanola Island, you'd be pretty mellow, too.
