See nature documentaries and animal biology textbooks come to life on this seven-day sailing trip around the Galápagos' north and central islands. On this unique territory, you'll spot some of the rarest, most treasured animal species on the globe. See red-footed boobies at El Barranco (one of two locations to spot the bird), snorkel around underwater craters to witness incredible marine life, and visit the Charles Darwin Research Station to spot giant Galápagos tortoises. Your journey is hosted aboard the latest addition to the G Adventures fleet— Eden — equipped with amenities that have your comfort and exploratory spirit in mind.

You will generally arrive at the boat in time for lunch on Day 2 before the afternoon activity.
Activity: Head to Bachas Beach where the sand is made of decomposed coral, making it soft and white, and a favourite site for nesting sea turtles.

Activity: Take the opportunity to swim and snorkel along the shore, home to one of the most iconic volcanic rock formations on the islands.
