Introduction Annie and Woody
Woody and Annie have been leading and guiding trips for Peregrine in the Antarctic and the Arctic for the last nine years, a combination of nearly 230 voyages between them. In 2010, between poles, they discovered the equatorial Galapagos Islands with Peregrine. Enjoying the diversity and abundance of wildlife from this experience, they have been delighted to escort and guide Galapagos voyages from 2011.
Once again, in 2015, Woody and Annie are looking forward to sharing their enthusiasm, passion, experience and knowledge escorting and guiding guests on the Queen Beatriz in the Galapagos. Every voyage to the Galapagos Islands is an amazing journey of discovery, your enjoyment and appreciation will be enhanced by travelling with two of our most experienced guides.
Those who have travelled with Annie in Antarctica or the Arctic will know of her enthusiasm and passion for wildlife and remote wilderness regions. With a wealth of experience of over 115 voyages to her cap, Annie’s pole-to-pole guiding and leading experience is now interspersed with, quite understandably, the remote ‘mid-pole’ region of the Galapagos Islands. Since first visiting the Galapagos, she has been captivated by the unique wildlife, the diversity of landscape and outstanding photographic opportunities that these islands present. Annie’s fascination and excitement for the area is infectious – you too will be enthralled with these “Enchanted Isles”.
David “Woody” Wood
Whilst Woody has boundless enthusiasm for the polar regions, he has found a new love in the Galapagos Islands. With nearly a decade of experience guiding and leading expeditions in the Antarctic and Arctic he is focussed on travelling with like-minded people to explore and experience another captivating destination. Whether walking, small boat cruising or snorkelling, Woody will help you become immersed in this astonishing, isolated precious place.
As we fly from Quito to the Galapagos Islands, located in the equatorial water of the Pacific Ocean, we suddenly find ourselves in a very different world. As we board our vessel, M.C Queen Beatriz, and follow in the footsteps of Charles Darwin, we start to encounter nature at its finest. This is indeed the Galapagos journey with something for everyone.
