    The Gal��pagos
    Lying 600 miles off the coast of Ecuador, the GalápagosIslands are a haven for some of the world’s most variedwildlife. It was this diversity that first led naturalist CharlesDarwin to propose that species evolved in response to theirenvironment. Darwin’s work also helped to alert the worldto the need — urgent even in his own day — to preservethese islands from degradation by humans. Today, tourismto the Galápagos is closely managed, protecting the wildlifewhile allowing you to experience the environment much asDarwin did. Because weather, water and wildlife conditionsare subject to constant change, your cruise itinerary is notfixed, but two daily excursions are planned to the main sitesand islands. This cruise itinerary explores the true originsof the archipelago, and includes landmarks such as PuntaEspinoza on Fernandina Island, the intriguing red beach ofRabida Island, the Champion Inlet of Floreana Island, andthe Charles Darwin Research Station on Santa Cruz Island.Each cruise day begins with a hearty breakfast, beforeboarding a sturdy panga for the morning shore excursion.As soon as your feet touch terra firma, expect to spot floraand fauna (differing species, depending on the island), takephotos and confer with your naturalist guide. You may see sun-bathing sea lions; skittering Sally Lightfoot crabs; tanglesof marine and land iguanas; penguins, flamingos, finches,terns and blue-footed boobies; even a century-old tortoisediligently trudging over the sand. Return to ‘La Pinta’ for arefreshing lunch, perhaps taken al fresco on deck, followedby time at leisure to nap or socialize. Keep your binocularshandy for possible sightings of dolphins or seabirds. In theafternoon, return to the pangas for the second excursionof the day, perhaps with an opportunity to swim, kayakor snorkel. You may well come face to face with a water-dwelling inhabitant, such as a curious sea turtle stoppingby to inspect those visiting its equatorial home.On a selected day during your cruise, enjoy one of theseDesign Your Day activities.Hike Inland to Cerro Dragon, viewing its wild inhabitantsup close, including lagoon birds and land iguanas.Kayak Offshore to experience the islands from a differentperspective, paddling amid marine iguanas and sea lions.Snorkel with Aquatic Denizens, witnessing undersea lifeas diverse as penguins, sharks, rays and cormorants.Back on board ‘La Pinta,’ enjoy time to shower and relaxbefore gathering in the dining room for another wonderfulmeal.
