El Nino - Is it Really That Bad?

El Nino - Is it Really That Bad?
We all hear a lot about El Nino and how, every 5-7 years, it turns weather patterns on their heads, adversely affecting wildlife at the same time. While this is true to a degree, no two El Nino events are the same, so predicting the outcome is never a given. It's important to understand the mechanics of El Nino in order to understand how the 2015 event is impacting a region such as the Galapagos Islands. To begin, typical westward blowing trade winds slow down. This in turn throws off the usual westward-flowing water currents such as the icy Humboldt Current, which typically bring rich nutrients to the islands.

Where will YOU Greet 2016?

Where will YOU Greet 2016?
The New Year is a fresh start, a perfect time to set the course for the year to come. What better way to do that than cruising the iconic Galapagos Islands, onboard a luxury yacht? January is the perfect time to see green sea turtles nesting, while Espanola's marine iguanas turn a brilliant red to attract mates as the courtship period gets into full swing for marine and the giant land iguanas!  The water is calm and warmer, the holiday crowds have returned home, the world - and year - are reborn!   Two of our favorite vessels, the 48 passenger Eclipse and the 16 passenger catamaran Athala are sweetening the deal with great prices on select departures!  Onboard the Eclipse, save big on the North Central itinerary for the Thursday-Saturday departures of 1/14-23 and 1/28-2/6, or the South Central itinerary on Thursday-Saturday departures 1/21-30 and 2/4-13.  The Athala's South...
