But why expedition? Because you'll truly explore and re-discover the Galapagos in the most natural and ecological way possible (no one else has this traveling approach).
Visitors with Giant Tortoise
Some of the most unusual, and fascinating species in the world, both terrestrial and marine, are found in the Galapagos Islands.
Here most of the surface (96%) is a National Park, surrounded by a protected Marine Reserve, both UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
On Santa Cruz Island, the giant tortoises can be seen at the Charles Darwin Research Station (including famous Lonesome George, the only remaining tortoise from Pinta Island) and also in the wild, in the Highlands of this Island.
A total of 140 species of birds have been registered in Galapagos. About half of the resident birds cannot be seen anywhere else in the world.
On its premises you can observe shore and lagoon birds such as ducks, stilts, herons, warblers, pelicans and frigates all easily approachable, just like all the Galapagos Island wildlife.
Eight species of Darwin's Finches are found on Santa Cruz Island.
GIANT TORTOISE RESERVE:
Here you can observe the Galapagos giant tortoises (in season) in their natural habitat.
Also, once in the highlands, you can visit Los Gemelos Pit Craters, just off the road towards the Baltra airport.
The highlands are also great for observing the Darwin's Finches, special attention should be given to the woodpecker finch, one of the few tool-using birds in the world.
SNORKELING AND DIVING:
Galapagos is considered a world premier destination for scuba diving and snorkeling.
The protected waters of its Marine Reserve have been well preserved, nearly untouched by external sources.
Here the crossroads of marine currents has resulted in a unique marine ecosystem.
In Devine Bay you can find an excellent location to explore by kayak. Each one is designed to hold 2 participants. Here you can get an up close look at sharks, sea turtles, rays, fish and a variety of marine birds.
Advise: When you search for Galapagos cruises look also for the additional activities they offer.
