The Galapagos Islands, also known as the Enchanted Isles, offer some of the world’s best wildlife viewing. UNESCO declared the islands a World Heritage Site in 1975, and a Biosphere Reserve in 1985.
The archipelago and surrounding waters are also a national park, marine reserve and whale sanctuary. Under the supervision of licensed naturalist guides, visitors can swim with sea lions, witness avian mating rituals, and learn about the unique adaptations of resident species.
Penguins, blue-footed boobies, land and marine iguanas, tortoises, flamingos, and whale sharks can be observed here in close proximity.
The islands are located in the equatorial Eastern Pacific, 604 miles west of the Ecuadorian coast. The archipelago consists of 13 main islands, six junior islands and over 100 islets and large rocks spread out over 45,000 square miles of ocean.
