Galapagos Western Itinerary - Petrel
You'll love this stylish and comfortable yacht for your Galapagos adventure! This US-based operator offers in-depth guiding plus an overnight in a tortoise reserve.
Galapagos: Drink It In
The Galapagos Islands, forged of black lava and named for the giant tortoises that are among their most noted inhabitants, are like no other place on Earth. Home to a profuse array of unique wildlife, the islands offer an immersion in nature that feels primeval. Iguanas and blue-footed boobies share the beaches with us, unfazed by our presence. Friendly sea lions—and sometimes inquisitive porpoises—play with us in the clear turquoise water, as Galapagos penguins dart by and sea turtles glide past. Author Herman Melville, who visited the islands in 1841, shortly after Darwin's momentous visit, called them the "Enchanted Isles"—an apt moniker for a realm that remains otherworldly, even today.
- • Enjoy an immersive exploration of the Galapagos, with a full week aboard a privately chartered yacht carrying just 16 guests and including 2 naturalist guides rather than the usual 1 per 16 passengers.
• Overnight in wild tortoise terrain at a private camp in the Santa Cruz highlands.
• Travel with a wildlife-passionate operator known for offering an up-close look at the world's most fascinating animals.
