Wonders of the Galapagos Islands Aboard Santa Cruz II

Wonders of the Galapagos Islands Aboard Santa Cruz II



Join us for this incredible, once-in-a-lifetime voyage to experience firsthand why Charles Darwin made this keen yet simple observation of the Galápagos Islands. Today, the archipelago is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with 95 percent of its natural biodiversity, first encountered when a Spanish ship drifted off course in 1535, still intact. Home to the amazing exotic birds, plants and animals that inspired Darwin, this “living laboratory of evolution” continues to offer the excitement of original discovery to every visitor.

Expert Naturalists
A team of multilingual onboard Ecuadorian expert naturalists will share their in-depth insight and knowledge about the Galápagos’ distinctive ecosystem during daily excursions and natural history lectures. The ship provides a glass-bottom boat to observe marine life, Zodiacs for island landings and excursions, complimentary snorkeling equipment and a nighttime stargazing program.
