The Galápagos: A Yacht Charter Adventure
This isolated archipelago of volcanic islands is known around the globe as a dream destination for wildlife enthusiasts looking for the experience of a lifetime. Located in the eastern Pacific Ocean near Ecuador, the Galápagos Islands were made famous by Charles Darwin, whose observations and collections during his explorations here inspired the inception of Darwin’s Theory of Evolution. Touring the Galápagos Islands by yacht offers an inspirational experience reminiscent of Darwin’s travels by boat, albeit more luxurious and glamorous. Throughout your Galápagos yacht charter, you’ll have the opportunity to immerse yourself in a mystical land filled with unexpected inhabitants and unique species, most of which have developed outside of human influence. Each island features its own distinctive landscape, ranging from barren grounds with volcanic rocks to stunning white sand beaches surrounded by aquamarine waters.
As a double World Heritage site, where both land and sea are protected, yacht routes are monitored by Galápagos National Park officials to ease crowding and environmental stress, resulting in blissful seclusion and undisturbed waters for cruising. With a lack of natural predators, the wildlife inhabitants are remarkably friendly and welcoming, offering visitors an intimate experience like no other. Here you can swim with sea lions and Pacific sea turtles, scuba-dive among hammerhead and whale sharks, and spot exotic marine iguanas, frigate birds, blue-footed boobies, albatross, and penguins on land.
A perfect spot to begin your Galápagos yacht charter is the island of Santa Cruz, which features lush vegetation, a host of exotic birds, and the legendary giant Galápagos tortoises in their natural habitat. Visit the Charles Darwin Research Station and Galápagos National Park headquarters for an in-depth and informational look into this mystical environment. When your exploration of the island is complete, your yacht and crew await, ready to transport you on the journey of a lifetime.
Española & Punta Suarez
Española Island is the most southerly and one of the oldest isles in the archipelago, attracting tourists with its variety of endemic wildlife, including the Española mockingbird, lava lizard, and waved albatross. Punta Suarez, one of the most coveted visitor sites of the Galápagos, is renowned for its albatross breeding colony, as well as “the blowhole,” a proverbial geyser that sprays water some 75 feet into the air.
San Cristóbal & Kicker Rock
San Cristóbal, the island where Darwin first went ashore, is tranquil and beautiful. The island is home to Punta Pitt, the only place where all three species of booby birds can be seen: blue-footed, red-footed, and Nazca. If snorkeling is on your list, take the tender to Kicker Rock, an underwater paradise that’s home to exotic schools of fish, hammerhead sharks, and sea lions.
