The Galapagos are remote islands off the coast of Ecuador. They are home to unique marine, land and famous bird species such as the Galapagos finches. These little birds inspired Darwin’s theory of evolution. Each island has its own unique collection of species adapted to the surroundings. Studying the wildlife of Galapagos has contributed enormously to scientists’ understanding of the natural world.

Discovering the Galapagos on a wildlife tour brings you in face to face contact with the full range of weird and wonderful creatures. Much of this unique Galapagos wildlife is fearless due to the lack of natural predators. You’ll see giant tortoises, salt spitting marine iguanas, lumbering land iguanas, Galapagos penguins, waved albatross, blue and red-footed boobies, frigate birds, all sorts of Galapagos finches. These are some of the rarest and most wonderful creatures on the planet.
