SEVL07MB - Gal pagos Land & Sea Central & East Islands aboard the Xavier III

Encounter the island chain that has enchanted explorers since Darwin first weighed anchor off its shores. Explore the incredible wildlife of the Gal pagos archipelago in the company of an expert Naturalist Guide. Giant tortoises, sea lions and island birds are in abundance here, and you'll have the chance to spot them all in visits to Santiago Island, Punta Pitt, and Cerro Brujo, and many more fascinating locales. In the evenings, return to the Xavier to reflect on the day's adventure under a canopy of stars. Finish off with a night on Santa Cruz island for some beach time and to see tortoises in the wild.
