Our 6-night route takes us around the largest, seahorse-shaped island of Isabela, where nature seems to hunt for the greatest. Explore the virtually untouched western end of the Galapagos Islands, which has just been born out of fire. You are just in time for the first thrilling chapters of evolution! Uncover the mystery of how tough pioneer species make barren lava fields habitable; and approach bizarre outgrowths of adaptation such as marine iguanas and flightless cormorants.
• Virgin Fernandina & the isolated west coast of Isabela make you an eyewitness of evolution.
• Flightless cormorants, largest marine iguanas and penguins near the equator (!)
• Fur seal grottos & a unique tidal channel with whitetip reef sharks & rays.
• The archipelago’s largest concentration of American flamingos in bird-rich wetlands.
