Galapagos Islands with alumni UBC

Oct 25 - Nov 04, 2021

11 days | Ecuador | alumni UBC Travel Club

Considered by many to be the archetypal ‘living laboratory’ of evolution, the Galapagos Islands have a natural appeal for ardent travellers. On this voyage of discovery, you can explore these magical islands that inspired Charles Darwin and generations since on board our exclusively chartered 16-passenger private yacht.

Skirt past nesting boobies, giant tortoises grazing in the lush highlands, and dinosaur-like iguanas sunning themselves on black lava shores. Swim or snorkel with tiny Galapagos Penguins and playful sea lions darting by you through the waters like torpedoes. Walk amongst dozing Galapagos Sea Lions. Watch the interactions among the bizarre Swallow-tailed Gulls. Observe Galapagos Giant Tortoises foraging peacefully on Santa Cruz. Discover the unique Chocolate Chip Sea Star clinging to the rocks while snorkelling. Challenge yourselves to distinguish the “Darwin’s Finches” based on their bill shape and size! Every day brings a new discovery!

Our exclusively chartered motor yacht has comfortable indoor and outdoor seating, private bathrooms for each of the 8 cabins, and freshcuisine. Our expert Galapagos National Park naturalist leads daily walks.

This full eight-day cruise ensures you visit several islands and have the opportunity for a fulfilling experience of these amazing landscapes and habitats.
