follow darwin’s footsteps
On this Galapagos trip on the Letty you will land on impressive volcanic landscapes that looked like they have just cooled down. Each day brings a visit to at least two islands with ample opportunity to hop in the water and swim with sea lions, turtles and even marine iguanas. Then it’s all about the big man of Galapagos exploration; walk up Darwin’s crater, swim in Darwin Bay and see Darwin’s daisies. Then see the iconic tortoises as he did roaming free in the wild on Isabela and Santa Cruz.
tide-pools and natural grottos
On Santiago Island there is a great place to explore tide-pools and find octopus, sea stars and look for rare wading birds. To top that, you arrive at a place where deep clear water has eroded the black lava rock to form a natural hide-away for the reclusive fur seals. On nearby Rábida or Jervis, sea lions dominate the beach, flamingos’ parade by a lagoon and reef fish can be spotted in the clear waters. Take to the waters in a kayak from San Cristobal or Isabela and splash around with turtles and penguins under the watchful eye of the majestic herons. At Fernandina you will see more marine iguanas than you can shake a stick at.
Most of the sights don’t require you to venture far from the shore as you explore the rocky, dry coast but with a little effort you can see the other face of the Galapagos environment. Move inland on the island of Santa Cruz to the jungle highlands where bright red vermillion flycatchers keep an eye on the numerous finches. For the adventurous would be pot-holers among you deep lava tubes can be explored underground. Galapagos is never-a-dull-moment. This is definitely a place where your dreams come true.
