Ecuador Galapagos Adventure Cruise on Galaxy Western Loop
Follow in the footsteps of Charles Darwin on this inspirational small-group adventure through the enchanted islands of the Galapagos. This classic Western Loop route takes in the natural wonders of the western islands of Isabela, Fernandina, Santiago, Sombrero Chino, and Rabida, as well as the central islands of Santa Cruz and North Seymour. The western islands are younger and more volcanically active, studded with cones, craters, and a rippled lava landscape, as well as stunning beaches. Hiking, snorkeling, and kayaking under the guidance of MT Sobek's dedicated naturalist guide gets you amazingly close to the wildlife both underwater and on land. After each action-filled day, return to your intimate 16-passenger private yacht to rest and re-energize. Explore further on our range of exciting pre- or post-trip extensions in Ecuador.
