Cruise to Galapagos Islands - a once in a lifetime cruise destination

Climate change is real! The evidence is right in front of us, especially when you examine the plight of destinations like the Maldives and the Galapagos Islands, which lie about 1000km off the west coast of Ecuador. For nature lovers, the Galapagos Islands are like another world, where hundreds of species are surviving and that you won’t find anywhere else on earth. However, due to the warming of the seas, the reefs surrounding the islands are dying off, land animals are being affected by the disappearing marine life and as sea levels rise, many habitats for indigenous species might come to an end as well.

Immortalised by the writings of Charles Darwin, the Galapagos Islands provided the scene for Darwin to develop his theory of evolution and natural selection. One can only imagine the vastness of life he must have come across while on the island some, 180 years ago. Today, unfortunately, the Galapagos Islands are under threat of disappearing, and if you have the Galapagos Islands on your bucket list, now is the time to visit.

A volcanic archipelago in the deep blue Pacific Ocean, the Galapagos Islands are a haven for unique and exquisite wildlife sightings. Spend the day snorkelling or scuba diving with spectacular marine life or wander around the islands national parks for sightings of some of the most amazing creatures you will ever come across.
