In his book The Voyage of the Beagle, Charles Darwin called the Galapagos archipelago “a little world within itself.” Over 150 years later much has changed, yet Galapagos Island travel still means encountering one of the most unique (and untouched) ecosystems on the planet. Boundless Journey’s Galapagos Islands tour is a dream come true for nature-loving families, who will cruise the islands in search of blue-footed boobies, land iguanas and penguins. For a more personalized encounter book our Explorer’s Galapagos Land-based Private Journey. This tour takes you off the beaten path to see the wilder parts of the Galapagos usually reserved for preservationists. And if for some reason you need a break from the astonishing flora and fauna, both tours offer ready access to beautiful beaches and the chance to lounge in the equatorial sun.
Our naturalist land-based tour introduces us to the many unique wonders of Coastal Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands. Swim with sea lions, snorkel with penguins, kayak with marine turtles, explore the islands by day and return every evening to comfortable charming land-based accommodations.
What better place to celebrate the winter holidays than aboard the deluxe 16-passenger catamaran, the Athala II. Cruise to pristine islands, stroll sun-drenched beaches, come face-to-face with prehistoric-looking marine iguanas and lumbering giant tortoises, and snorkel with playful sea lions and penguins. Make this holiday season unforgettable in the Galapagos Islands.
Boundless Journeys’ strongly believes in choosing travel partners who support local communities and actively work to preserve cultural traditions and natural habitats. One of our valued partners in the Galapagos Islands, Ecoventura, is a recognized leader in responsible tourism through its core commitment to the on-going sustainability of the Islands.
Voted as the World’s Best Islands (Mexico & Latin America) in the August issue of Travel + Leisure, and voted #1 Best Travel Experience of a lifetime in the August issue of Wanderlust (UK), the Galapagos Islands have become one of the more popular tourist attractions in the world.
The catamaran Athala II was specifically designed and built to cruise the Galapagos Islands in style. All cabins have ocean views with large portrait windows (not portholes), and those on the main deck have the additional luxury of a private balcony.
A few years back a group of Boundless Journeys guests on our Tanzania: Migration Safari shared a special experience. They engaged in volunteer work at the Foundation for African Medicine & Education (FAME).
It happens to everybody, even those of us who live, breathe, eat, and dream the travel industry – when faced with the question “how long does it take to get there?” we can freeze like the proverbial fawn in high beams.
"Charlie was a fantastic guide. I do not know where you find these guys! Every guide we have had with Boundless Journeys has been amazing! Thank you for a great experience (again!)."
