The Galapagos Islands consist of 14 islands that are located
approximately 600 miles off the coast of Ecuador. They gained fame in
the 19th century when Charles Darwin used their fantastic creatures to
argue his theory of evolution. Since its publication in the mid-1800s,
his theory has been bringing inquisitive visitors to the Galapagos to
see the local wildlife first hand.
Today, a Galapagos Island cruise continues to connect
vacationers with a wide range of animals, including giant tortoises and
the blue-footed booby, as well as those same unreal and exotic
creatures that look like they could have come from a children's book.
On your cruise to the Galapagos, you can learn about conservation
efforts at the Charles Darwin Research Station or take a hike through
Dragon Hill to spot tropical creatures including iguanas, Darwin
finches and flamingos. If you prefer marine life, you can snorkel with
sea lions, spotted eagle rays and barracudas. And once you work up an
appetite, enjoy some of the freshest fish you can get anywhere.
Galapagos Island cruises feature several amazing ports including
Daphne Island, Punat Suarez, Floreana, Santa Cruz and Isla Baltra.
The Cruise Web offers cruises to the Galapagos from 4-7 nights in length.
