Meet the fascinating wildlife of the Galapagos Islands on this sailing adventure on the Nemo III

Uniting forested, volcanic, marine, coastal and mountainous landscapes over a span of 25,000 islands, the Galapagos is one of the most diverse settings in the world. From Santa Cruz through Isla Santiago to Isla Daphne, prepare for warm, aquamarine waters, inland lagoons, layers of volcanic crust and, of course, a diverse array of animals. Blue-footed, red-shelled, grey-feathered or black-skinned, the wildlife of the Galapagos are truly incredible - from iguanas that can swim, lizards that can detach their tails and finches that have evolved depending on which island they live on.

  • Enjoy a dinner in one of Quito’s fine restaurants
  • Island-hop onboard the Nemo III
  • Watch the bizarre mating rituals of the Galapagos’ vibrant birdlife
  • Don a snorkel and discover the abundant and colourful marine life
  • Hang out on the black sand beach of Puerto Egas
