The Galapagos Islands are one of nature’s great experiences and are a truly unique wildlife haven where the birds and animals are impervious to the presence of humans. Enjoyable as well as educational, you’ll get up close to the wildlife that so inspired Charles Darwin after his visit in the early 19th century. Marvel at extraordinary birdlife such as the famous blue-footed booby, land and marine iguanas and centuries old Galapagos tortoises or swim with sea lions and penguins. A&K offers a range of vessels as well as island lodges to provide you with the best possible experience during your visit to the Galapagos. A&K partners with a great range of vessels and a cruising holiday with A&K will include fascinating shore excursions, English-speaking naturalist guides, wet and dry landings and ample opportunities for swimming, snorkelling and wildlife encounters.
