Trip to the Galapagos Islands

Without a doubt, the destination you must see before you die. Enjoy the exotic and exclusive Galapagos Islands on a 10-day trip where we will dive in the best spots of the archipelago aboard the "Aqua" boat with land extensions on Isabela and Santa Cruz islands, where we will enjoy the best landscapes, spot all the wildlife in the area, and engage in a variety of activities surrounded by pristine nature.

Galapagos is the second largest marine reserve in the world. With a wonderful underwater life of large species and very diverse richness, it is the best diving destination on the planet: all kinds of sharks (hammerheads, Galapagos, whales, whitetips...), pelagics, sea lions, eagle rays, iguanas, turtles...

But it's not just amazing underwater; on land, we'll have the chance to see land turtles, iguanas, penguins, and a bunch of endemic exotic birds in the area, as well as unique volcanic landscapes in the world.
