  • Earth's Great Wildlife Extravaganza. Underwater, on land and in the air, the Galapagos presents a simply staggering portrait of nature at its greatest. See giant tortoises, icon of the islands, then walk along trails past innumerable marine iguanas. Share a beach with sea lion colonies, then watch the courtship rituals of the beautiful albatross. Take a swim in the waters, catching sight of penguins, sharks and a rainbow of tropical fish while sea lions dart towards you, bold as brass and hoping to play. Back on the boat, and dolphins surf the bow waves while blue-footed boobies make their plummeting dives into the waters and red-breasted frigatebirds wait, ready to commit their spectacular acts of aerial piracy. When you walk down the main street in Puerto Ayora, the archipelago's largest town, and see pelicans and sea lions, you know you're somewhere that has a glorious abundance of wildlife!

  • Why we love Galapagos Islands (Ecuador)

    • It seems every new beach, lagoon, hillside and outcrop you visit is host to an abundance of amazing looking creatures unperturbed by your presence.
    • From 2013 all our Galapagos trips will be aboard Peregrine’s new vessel, the Queen Beatriz. She has large cabins which all feature ensuites, air conditioning and ocean views, with some cabins offering private balconies. There’s an outdoor jacuzzi and two bar areas perfect for soaking up the incredible island views after a fun day cruising the islands. While the comfy lounge area is the perfect spot to take in the daily briefings and presentations on the wildlife and history of the Galapagos.
    • For twitchers, a highlight of the Galapagos is the nesting grounds of the waved albatross on Espanola Island. The birds nest on a cliff, and you can stand on the edge of it and watch these amazing creatures with a huge wingspan, flying right towards you
    • Share a beach with sea lion colonies, then watch the courtship rituals of the beautiful albatross
    • Take a swim in the waters, catching sight of penguins, sharks and a rainbow of tropical fish while sea lions dart towards you, bold as brass and hoping to play
    • Walk down the main street in Puerto Ayora, the archipelago's largest town, and see pelicans and sea lions
