"The natural history of these islands is eminently curious, and deserves attention. Considering the small size of these islands, we feel the more astonished at the number of their aboriginal beings, and their confined range. Hence, we seem to be brought somewhat near to that great fact-that mystery of mysteries-the first appearance of new beings on this earth."

 - Charles Darwin, The Voyage of the Beagle

Why do we partner with ExpeditionTrips?

  • This was absolutely the most amazing experience of my life. It's the best trip we have ever taken. Everything was perfect. Kristy's patience with me asking so many detailed questions, the amount of time she spent with me, and her honesty helping us pick just the right boat was fantastic. The price was right too!

    Thank you, Kristy, for all your help answering our questions and booking everything.

  • I have returned from my trip to Galapagos and I wanted to let you know I had a great time on the Explorer II. I had always wanted to go to the Galapagos. Booking it by email made it very easy. was very helpful, April was very good, and I would book another trip. Thanks for your help in organizing my trip!
