The Great Galapagos Tour: Nine Days in the Wild
Nine days in the Galapagos Islands on a luxury sailboat and a lifetime’s worth of wildlife encounters.
Nature lovers and wildlife photographer, pack your bags and get the camera ready. We’ve located your paradise. And, we know the experts that are going to get you there. Welcome to the Galapagos Islands.
Praised by industry big dogs National Geographic and BBC Wildlife, among several others, Wild Focus Expeditions (WFE) has designed the ultimate Galapagos tour. The award-winning wildlife photography tours company sets itself apart with a rather straight-forward concept: “travel different.” By specializing in small group travel and honing the expertise of its talented travel team, the brand connects photographers and adventure-seekers with intimate, uninterrupted moments in nature and of course, opportune wildlife observing.
Now to the magical stuff.
Just over 600 miles from Ecuador, the tropical region is world-renown for countless endemic species. So many fascinating creatures, in fact, explorers must watch their step when grazing the shoreline. Because wildlife evolved without natural predators for thousands of years, they are familiar with human presence. This makes for a surprisingly interactive experience. Trip participants can swim with sharks, play with sea lion pups and penguins or spend quality time with one of the area’s most notorious species – the giant sea tortoise. Some of the land-bound animals include albatross, red-footed boobies, masked boobies, and marine iguanas. And that is just a mere glimpse of the countless exotic animals that await guests on the islands.
