A luxury Galapagos cruise is an incredible privilege and the minute you step aboard any of our expedition vessels, you will realise you have embarked on a truly unforgettable adventure that will reward you with amazing times at sea and ashore, thanks to constant contact with this unique archipelago’s untamed nature. The island of Genovesa, one of the ports of call on this tour, is known, for instance, as Bird Island because it is home to the largest and most diverse bird colonies in the entire Galapagos. In fact, its residents include red-footed boobies, short-eared owls and the rare lava gull.
Swimming, kayaking along the coast or snorkelling in extinct volcanic calderas are just a few of the activities you can include in your plans. One of the guided visits you really should not miss, however, is of the Charles Darwin Research Station, which is charged with the conservation of the archipelago and protecting the giant tortoises in their native habitat.
