Mostly known for their exotic environments and rare species, the Galapagos Islands are nestled near the coast of Ecuador. The 13 main islands that make up the Galapagos Islands are about 600 miles off the South American coast line. Due to the distance from shore, the islands are very isolated and a cruise is the best means of travel to explore the wonders of the Galapagos. If you want to see the natural beauty and exotic animals native to these islands, consider booking a Galapagos Cruise so you can enjoy this tropical splendor with an expert guide to help show you the way!
The climate of these secluded islands is perfect for the vast wildlife. The Galapagos contain various famed species such as sea lions, the blue-footed booby, penguins, manta rays, turtles, and many more! By exploring the Galapagos Islands, you will see indigenous wildlife mentioned in Charles Darwin’s Theory of Natural Selection, including the Galapagos tortoises, the largest tortoises in the world.
Another animal to search for is the marine iguana, which is the only living marine lizard on earth as it lives on both land and sea. Don’t forget about the Galapagos penguin, one of the smallest penguins in the world as well as the only group of penguins north of the equator. Practically every animal in the Galapagos is famous for one reason or another, so remember to bring your camera for amazing photo opportunities!
