Why Charter a Yacht in the Galapagos?
Walk in Darwin’s footsteps
The islands are best known for their connection to Charles Darwin, who spent years studying the animal life in the Galápagos Islands and working on his theory of natural selection. During your charter, visit the Charles Darwin Research Station at Puerto Ayora to get up close with giant tortoises, penguins, sea lions, marine iguanas, and a large array of birds. You’ll leave this spot with a better appreciation of your surroundings for the rest of your trip.
Swim with giants
From July through November, visitors to the Galapagos will have the opportunity to spot giant whale sharks. The waters also hold sea turtles, rays, sea lions, and other fascinating marine life. Whether you’re a casual swimmer or prefer snorkeling and scuba diving, there is nothing else on earth like exploring the waters of the Galápagos. Boat charter adventures can bring you up close and personal to giant creatures like these!
See volcanic creations during your Galápagos yacht charter. The volcano on Fernandina Island has formed a strip of lava and sand that reaches into the sea and is home to marine iguanas, Galápagos snakes, soaring hawks, and the lava cactus. Urbina Bay, on the eastern edge of the Alcedo volcano, has a distinct landscape with pumice rock, lava, coral, and unique vegetation. At Punta Moreno, you’ll have an awe-inspiring panoramic view of three volcanoes: the Sierra Negra, the Cerra Azul, and La Cumbre.
Witness some of the world’s most spectacular creatures
The Galapagos are a mystical place filled with creatures found nowhere else on Earth. Along the rocky coastline of Isabela Island, you’ll see Galapagos penguins pruning their feathers or diving from the rocks to catch their lunch. The canal and mangroves provide an excellent habitat for a variety of wildlife, including sea turtles, cormorants, rays, sea lions, and even small sharks. On the northern coast of Floreana Island, you’ll reach Cormorant Point, which is known for its colony of flamingos, iguanas, sea lions, marine birds, and more.
