The Darwin Expedition centers on adventure travel with an environmental twist. Swimming with sea lions just inches away from your mask and crouching beside a blue-footed booby as it performs its distinctive courtship dance are samples of the incredible animal encounters waiting for you.
Located 600 miles west of Ecuador, the Galapagos Archipelago is made up of over 100 individual islands.

In the Galapagos, you'll take a 4-day boat trip with a naturalist guide then, joining forces with the Galapagos National Parks, you will help do your part to preserve this natural wonderland.
