Take the Plunge
Diving tours are one of the most popular and sought after activities in the Galapagos Islands. With the marine life and natural beauty being ranked as one of the seven underwater wonders of the world it’s no surprise divers are blowing bubbles to explore this underwater wonderland. The marine life is sure to throw surprises at diving enthusiasts with whale sharks, schools of Hammerhead sharks, penguins, tortoises, fish and the iconic Galapagos lizard – one of the only swimming lizards in the world.
If diving deep isn’t for you, there is much to be seen whilst snorkelling with lion seals, turtles and schools of rainbow coloured fish. Alternatively, take a boat cruise to get a good look at the islands and the beauty they have to offer whilst relaxing with a cocktail on a luxurious yacht.
Take the ultimate hiking adventure and experience the glorious Galapagos Islands landscape firsthand. The hiking tour takes you along a breathtaking journey walking along the rim of the Sierra Negra which is the world’s largest volcano caldera. The trek concludes with a relaxing stroll on the white sand beaches while giant tortoises amble past. A guide is available to take novice trekkers through the Galapagos landscape while explaining the history and natural wonders of the islands.
