Kayak between sea lions, marine iguanas, and colorful tropical fish.

In these Islands you can sail past groups of blue footed boobies, observe seal lions and Fur seals resting on rocky beaches, and ride around peaceful inlets and mangrove bays.

Kayaking in Galapagos will allow you to see the wonderful wildlife of these Islands in a closer and more personal way from behind the paddle of a sea kayak, providing you a more intimate journey in the enchanting Galapagos Islands.

Explore the Island's oceanic geologic origins, diverse wildlife, rich sea life, and intriguing natural history all of which are unique on this planet.

You do not have to be an athlete to enjoy your Galapagos kayak adventure. The techniques of paddling are relatively simple and easy to learn.

The sea kayak is a low-impact, non-technical self propelled craft that has been used for centuries by the ancient Inuit culture in the Arctic Ocean.

Imagine yourself in the Galapagos Islands, gliding into a solitary bay and finding a beach inhabited solely by sea lions, marine turtles or large, mysterious marine iguanas.

Or imagine kayaking in the warm misty ocean and out of the clear a marine turtle comes up for air right next to you.

Explore lava channels, coves, turquoise waters, white sand beaches, up-close from your kayak.

You'll be surrounded by true nature, peace and spectacular wildlife as you kayak around the Galapagos.

Words cannot describe the magical wonder of exploring these islands on the Pacific Ocean where the birds and animals have little or no fear of humans.

Don't miss the opportunity to swim with sea lions, marine iguanas, turtles, rays, hammerhead sharks and more.

You will also watch pelicans and boobies dive for fish. (That's quite a view)

You can have the opportunity to do Snorkeling in the Galapagos Sea in crystal clear water rich with exotic fish and, if you adventurous, swim with sharks.

Galapagos kayak activity has always marveled visitors every time they visit this Archipelago.

You will have the unique opportunity to re-discover the wonders of these set of Islands by yourself, just like Tomas de Berlanga or Charles Darwin did many centuries ago.

The Galapagos Islands have been a national park of Ecuador since 1959 and Metropolitan Touring was one of the first travel companies to organized tourism in the 1960s.

This Archipelago is a dream of a place to visit due to its famed natural history and remarkable Galapagos Animals (most of them endemic to the Islands).

Visit the Galapagos Islands and discover its exotic wildlife surrounded by its Spectacular Landscapes and exciting nature coupled with stunning sunsets.
