Located directly on the Equator 600 miles off the coast of Ecuador in the Pacific Ocean. Enjoy guided educational walks along carefully marked trails where you will encounter flora and fauna in close proximity. Most species are endemic and can be seen throughout the year. Admire the wildlife that has no fear of man.
July to September is the windy period. September is best avoided due to strong winds and cool water temperatures. Albatrosses nest on Hood Island from April to November.
You stay aboard your chosen motor yacht as a means of transport between islands with no packing and unpacking involved. The yacht cruises at night providing maximum time to explore these interesting islands. Guided walks generally take place morning and late afternoon (wildlife is at its most active) to avoid the intense heat of the day. Do take into consideration these smaller craft have noise and vibration and cabin/public space is restricted. Do expect some movement from the sea during travel.
Small groups of 10 to 16, depending on vessel chosen, will be accompanied by a knowledgeable guide with walks along well marked paths in order to ensure wildlife is undisturbed. Landings are staggered to avoid overcrowding. Most landing are by small Panga tenders onto remote beaches and rocky shoreline with few piers. Some will be “wet” landings and guests should be moderately agile. Sturdy footwear is highly recommended. Excursions are well organised with prior briefings.

January - Observe the marine iguanas changing their colours in attempt to attract mates. Many land birds are busy starting to prepare their nests, whilst the green sea turtles can be found laying eggs on several beaches.
February - The Galapagos dove and flamingos on Floreana start to nest, whilst the Galapagos Penguins migrate from Bartholeme towards Isabela and Fernandina, in search of cooler waters. Whilst on Fernandina and North Seymour the marine iguanas are nesting.
March - The Frigate birds are courting potential partners by inflating their vivid red throat pouches, which can be seen on S
