Get ready for an odyssey through wild Pacific ecosystems, from lava plains and lush mangrove lagoons to tropical marine reserves. This trip combines great company, waterfront comfort and expert support to make the most of every moment. Snorkel turquoise waters with marine iguanas and pint-size Galapagos penguins. Meet giant tortoises face to face. Spot blue-footed boobies. Visit the Charles Darwin Research Center, then enjoy a private dinner with a scientist. Trek across an alien-looking landscape to the rim of Sierra Negra Volcano. Paddle to hidden coves and relax on white-sand beaches. Stop at Darwin Bay, landing site of the HMS Beagle. (Don’t forget to watch for finches!) Few people are fortunate enough to visit this extraordinary place. Every day brings experiences you’ll treasure for the rest of your life.
