As we all know, the Galapagos Islands is one of the world's most sought-after destinations, and this year readers of USA Today voted it the ultimate bucket list trip. Why? Simply put: It’s the one of the best destinations in the world--and one of the most pristine--for people of any generation to closely and safely interact with animals in the wild. Where else can you go snorkeling with penguins, sea lions and sea turtles all in the same outing and come face to face with a 100 year old giant tortoise in the wild?
We want to remind you of a little-known secret. There are ways to actually save money and have the Galapagos more to yourselves at the same time. Seriously! It’s all about timing and opportunity. Between late Fall and into the beginning if Winter there is lots of wildlife activity, fewer travelers, and more personal time with the guides. Be it those with celebrity status such as sea lions, giant tortoises and blue-footed boobies, or more obscure and fascinating folk such as flightless cormorants and marine iguanas, they're all ready for their close-up. Additionally, during this time of year marine life is more active than at other times. It’s no wonder divers, snorkelers and marine wildlife fanatics in general are astounded by the sights during this time of the year.
And now we have a special promotion to combine with this special season. Travel on select departures October through January and save $1000 per person on the Grace
, which was just refurbished in 2014. She's a beautiful yacht that accommodates just 18 passengers along with 2 naturalists so show you the sights.
Keeping it wild,
