Galapago Islands Tours, Cruises & Experiences

Located to the west of continental Ecuador, the Galápagos Islands are an archipelago of volcanic islands on either side of the Equator in the Pacific Ocean.  The islands are also a national park and marine reserve.

The Galápagos Islands were discovered by accident in 1535 when Tomás de Berlanga drifted off course when sailing from Panama to Peru.  The archipelago is perhaps best famous for the scientific expeditions that occurred there during the 18th century.  Charles Darwin arrived in 1835 and studied the geology, botany and animals found there.  His discoveries provided important evidence for his theory of evolution.  Ecuador officially claimed the territory in 1832 and used it mainly for penal colonies.  In 1959, 97% of the area became a national park and organised tourism began the following year. 

In 1978 the area was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site and in 1985 it became a biosphere reserve.  The islands are an ecological wonderland populated with fearless and incredible wildlife.  The largest living tortoise species, the Galápagos Tortoise is famous for its long lifespan and can weigh over 400 kg (880 lbs).  The distinctive blue-footed booby is synonymous with the islands, so too are the colonies of curious sea lions.  Besides unique wildlife, there are also excellent beaches that welcome swimming, diving and surfing. 

A visit to the Galápagos Islands is a truly spectacular experience that continues to attract tourists from around the world. Book one of our Galapagos tours today and be part of the experience.
