Visitors come to the Galapagos to experience the islands and the unique flora and fauna found throughout the archipelago. Voyages aboard the 100-passenger Galapagos Explorer II have been designed in such a way that allows visitors to perceive the Galapagos from different perspectives: guided naturalist-led hikes, relaxing walks along the beach, snorkeling with marine mammals and swimming! Islands are visited twice daily and always involve a leisurely hike in a small group, led by your own naturalist guide.
