Inquisitive sea lions and spiky marine iguanas breach and bask between island and shore, while friendly hammerhead sharks patrol the depths and blue-footed boobies cut through the sky.
Nowadays, the islands host a steady stream of modern-day explorers. And for good reason – as far as face-to-face wildlife encounters go, the Galapagos wildlife experience rivals even the likes of Africa.
Amazing wildlife, both on land and underwater, is the drawcard of the remote Galapagos Islands.

Trace Darwin’s theory of evolution, spot colourful, bizarre and beautiful creatures and have an experience that is completely out of this world as you discover the incredible Galapagos Islands.
