Galapagos animals: what to see & where

This stunning archipelago is made up of 13 major islands, formed by enormous volcanic eruptions and only inhabited by humans less than 200 years ago. It is Darwin's living laboratory of evolution and provides unique opportunities for viewing wildlife at close range.
The Galapagos Islands have inspired botanists and nature-lovers alike. Charles Darwin visited in 1835 and declared "remarkable; it seems to be a little world within itself." The islands are made up of the tops of volcanoes and flourishing with endemic species. Such harsh conditions have forced rapid adaptation in the wildlife here, none more so than in the marine iguanas which had to take to the seas to survive, the only lizard to do so in the entire world.
The Galapagos National Park is dedicated to the preservation of this unique habitat and visits are carefully co-ordinated with fixed itineraries (licensed by the park authorities) for each boats so that the number of visitors at each site is carefully controlled. We offer a wide range of Galapagos cruises to suit all tastes and budgets, and which offer the best way of seeing the different islands.
