The Galapagos Islands are located 600 miles west of Ecuador in South America and offer some of the most spectacular wildlife encounters. Adventures on board a small yacht can put you face to face with Marine Iguanas & giant tortoises. At no other place on earth will you find penguins which live on the equator (The Galapagos Penguin) or iguanas which swim and feed in the ocean (The Marine Iguanas)! Because these islands have only recently been visited by humans, the literally 1000s of animals that inhabit these islands have never learned to fear man. You can literally walk right up to blue-footed boobie birds, red-footed boobie birds, masked boobie birds, albatrosses, penguins, land iguanas, marine iguanas, lava lizards, sea lions, fur seals, red-chested frigate birds, flamingos, finches, tropic birds, lava gulls, giant tortoises, and flightless cormorants. The marine life which inhabits the waters that surround the Galapagos archipelago is just as fantastic as the wildlife found on shore making Galapagos one of the best dive destinations in the world. Having said all this about the Islands its time to tell you how to plan your Galapagos Adventures, so that this amazing destination is visited in comfort and ease.
