The Intriguing Islands of the Galapagos
The Galapagos Islands may be the most intriguing nature destination on Earth, where animals found nowhere else show no fear at close range. Our small-group cruises and photo expeditions aboard private chartered yachts immerse you in this wondrous world, with insight from naturalist guides who are among the top interpreters in the islands. Join Expedition Leader Court Whelan as he takes you on a virtual exploration of this fascinating archipelago and its wild residents—you’ll meet blue-footed boobies and red-chested frigatebirds, sleepy iguanas and lumbering tortoises, Galapagos penguins and frolicksome sea lions that cavort with our guests as they snorkel! Court, a seasoned photo tour leader, will tell you why the Galapagos is such a thrilling destination for wildlife photography — and, as Nat Hab’s Director of Sustainability and Conservation, he’ll share an inspiring perspective on why protecting these unique islands is so important.
