Galapagos Islands

Galapagos - One of the Best Places in the World to See Wildlife

By

The Galapagos Islands are found off the coast of Ecuador in the Pacific Ocean. This archipelago is famous for its diverse wildlife and how visitors can view these animals in their natural habitats. Since each island is somewhat different, the best way to see the Galapagos Islands is on a small ship.

Travelers usually fly the 700 miles from Guayaquil, Ecuador to the Galapagos and board a small ship when they arrive. Many small cruise ships, sailing vessels, and small yachts sail Galapagos Islands cruises from 3- to 10-days. One of these cruise operators is Quasar Expeditions, who furnished the terrific photos seen in the thumbnails below.
