Natural History Tours of the Galápagos

Our trips are educationally-oriented and are accompanied by a Tour Leader / Biologist in addition to a local Naturalist Guide. The tours are oriented to the passenger who wants to observe and learn as much as possible about the Galápagos - the animals and plants - on land and in the water. The tours are also oriented to photographers (although you don't have to be a photographer to get full value and enjoyment from our trips). We do offer some photographic instruction and, more important extensive, unique, and excellent photo opportunities.
